Takedown today of a 25 feet walnut tree in Westwood, where disease had spread top down to about one-third of the height of the tree. We chipped all the smaller branches and then the trunk was cut into logs for enthusiastic woodturners.
A busy couple of days dismantling a 20m high split horse chestnut tree at St James Church in Ludgershall.
We were contacted by the Church to inspect the tree following the loss of a large limb during recent windy weather. On inspection, the tree was found to be in an unsafe condition as it was agreed to remove it completely and grind out the stump.
Some of the timber was retained by the village to construct a Hibernaculum close by, and larger pieces were used by villagers for tabletops!
Thanks to Rev Tim for this time-lapse video; also starring Iggy and Gerri the sheep in the foreground.
“Thank you to the brilliant tree surgeons who came and safely took down our damaged Horse Chestnut in our churchyard!”
Oh Dear…. Today’s tricky one all done safely by Antony, Jamie, Garry and Len.
Here was a fallen willow tree across a remote footbridge over a watercourse. We dismantled the tree by climbing with rope and harness. There was no way of getting anything else to the site as it was across several wet fields. 04 Feb 2020
