Here’s our new timber trailer having its first day out today clearing up several days of felling…
Sad to see this go – a local landmark coming down in Worton due to decay.
The decay, which you can see in the photo, was detected in the base of this 100 ft Cedar of Lebanon. Using the Picus Sonic Tomograph, the decay was clear.
This was the last one of six that were there before the houses were built on Cedar Close; now, perhaps Cedar-less Close!
The trunk was taken down to the West Country for wood carving into something quite unique. Howard & Sons undertook the haulage
A replacement tree has been planted.

Moss treatment on Chalgrove Airfield last week to control moss and weeds on the runway.
10 Ha of tarmac treated at 500 litres/Ha – easy with the correct machinery. All works were undertaken early in the morning not to hinder the active runway. Well done Derek!
Chalgrove Airfield is a former World War II aerodrome near Chalgrove, South Oxfordshire
New EVO3 under construction; hopefully arriving soon; “the ultimate tracked post driver”
A “before, during and after” of pollarding 98 Lime trees in Tidworth. This was the last few of 98 done over the winter months. Good job done by Scott, Antony and Cleeve.
If you’ve never spotted our page of definitions of tree work, check it out here.
We used both our 26m MEWPS, including our most recent one, the Teupen LEO 23 GT – ideal for quick, efficient jobs: It is especially suited for job sites that provide little space and require great working heights. It has a variable and quick multi-position stabilising system, 180˚rotatable basket and flexible articulated and telescopic boom. See here for full details of our three MEWPS.
Further pictures of the fence clearing project and clearing of dense scrub at Blandford Camp. A new stock fence is to be erected to allow grazing of cattle on Monkton Down SSSI, to control scrub and aid chalk grassland. The old fence has been removed for recycling.
