It was nice to have a team day away at Mountain Mayhem – off-road buggies and hovercraft racing and time trials… We managed to break two buggies and even a hovercraft! If you think you can drive, go and try the hovercraft – they are a great leveller !!
Good day had by all which was well organised and professional. Well done to all at Mountain Mayhem
This was followed by a meal for everyone and partners at The Well in Bulkington, which again was a well organised evening thanks to Tim and Sam.
Dan and Matt started a sectional dismantling 12 Poplar trees at The Hall Estate, Bradford on Avon which were 120′ high. Having a head for heights is one of the more important requisites of the guys on our team! What a glorious blue sky – haven’t seen one like that for a few weeks! Job done and all wood chipped for biomass and delivered locally.
See our images below and here Matt shows how to rig off a large limb safely and controlled. It does not look big from on the ground. In all, this project took 2 weeks to complete. Our tree works have taken us far and wide from Cornwall to Corby since our last newsletter!
Since our last update, we are delighted to confirm that we have secured a framework agreement with the Forestry Commission for the inspection of infected trees across the South West of England This also includes felling infected trees and collecting samples. This will take us from Gloucester down through Dorset and to East Devon.
Plotting infected trees for landowners and public bodies, with samples taken and returned to Forestry Commission for testing, follows on from a contract to survey over 50 sites for a national health care company from Preston in Lancashire in the north to Kent in the south, along with MoD sites throughout the South West. Apparently the little white van now needs replacing !
