Our task here was the removal of deadwood from roadside trees at Netheravon. In addition, we had to fell a dead ash tree using our MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform).
We spent a week dismantling decaying beech trees in Bath. They were leaning over a footpath and, having recently been surveyed, there was no choice but to dismantle and remove them and plant replacements. The timber will be used for firewood. We needed a team of 2 climbers, a groundsman with tractor and a 30-ton winch on the last day to fell the stems.
But, as you’ll see from the last three pictures below, the weather wasn’t always kind to us during the week!
You might have seen us last week clearing back overhanging trees in Bradford on Avon. We were along the riverside between the station car park and swimming pool.

Here’s a picture of young Lukas dismantling the first of many 60-foot sycamore trees for St Mary’s Hospital in Bristol.
The project necessitated the trees being dismantled for the regeneration of the site into student accommodation.

Here’s a 60-second video of one of a pair of time trees coming down in Bishops Cannings at the beginning of November. The trees were healthy in themselves but had grown to a height of 100 feet. The roots were undermining the buildings which were planned for a change of use in the near future so needed to be removed.
Lime trees are one of the most iconic British trees forming lined avenues on grand houses and estates. There is even a circle of trees planted in Pewsey, Wiltshire that are still alive and healthy today, designed so that duellers could get some privacy from onlookers when in action!
The action is all in the last few seconds!
Trowbridge Cemetery today for Rich and Steve reducing and crown lifting two large oaks.
These trees were in the centre of the cemetery and were impeding access and also touching the chapel building. The trees were probably there before the first Trowbridge resident and just required a little TLC to ensure longevity.
