In the first set of pictures, we carried out a controlled removal of a dangerous, split tree in a high target location behind a garden wall adjacent to a road junction and the car park of a busy doctor’s surgery. The tree was in a precarious condition and had to be made safe and promptly taken down as there was a high volume of both vehicle and pedestrian traffic nearby. An ideal job for our own tracked mobile elevating work platform – MEWP. Unbelievably, this machine requires only a 31” gap to access sites.
In the second set of pictures, access for the machine wasn’t an issue, but the location of the tree was. We dismantled a beech tree with root issues that was situated between two buildings. Three roofs, a chimney stack, and an oil tank at the rear and at the other side of the wall an electricity cable, a propane gas tank and drainage covers both sides and an underground sump gave us an interesting set of targets to be avoided! We safely and efficiently sectionally dismantled the crown of the tree, felled the trunk away from underground services and sump, ground out the stump and re-instated the driveway afterwards to the great satisfaction of the client.
Finally, where there is just no room to take down a tree - We can always take it up instead!
