Who are Ligna? /

Our Expertise

A modern arboricultural consultancy firm.


Located near Newmarket in Suffolk and covering East Anglia, we are committed to providing our clients with in-depth and tailored advice on a range of tree related issues.

Using our in-depth knowledge of trees and the planning system, we pride ourselves in forming long lasting working relationships with our clients. These are based upon open communication, the ability to convey our expertise in a concise manor, and the desire to continually improve the service that we provide to you. Our small, friendly team are always happy to answer your questions and help you to achieve your desired result.

Our Mission

Easy to understand, relevant advice.


Over the years we’ve read hundreds of tree reports, and the recurring issue we see almost every time is the overly complex, hard to follow, and jargon filled nature of these reports.

This spurred us on to start Ligna Consultancy, where our primary founding aim was to provide easy to understand, relevant advice. We feel that our role as experts is to simplify our industry; not dress it up with big words in order to justify our fee… At Ligna we believe that the arboricultural industry is only just beginning to evolve to meet the demands of today’s architects, developers and duty holders. We aim to be at the forefront of this shift, and are constantly looking into new technologies and methods to improve our service to you.
