A few images from a couple of dismantle jobs this week with Steve and Justin aloft.
A 60-foot Eucalyptus tree was overhanging a very old stone wall at Rowde, near Devizes.
Then there’s a conifer coming down in Potterne.
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.
