Removal of large conifers in Potterne 

Here our task was to remove a large group of mature leylandii close to main high voltage lines.  This needed a power shutdown to be able to work safely.  The work had taken three months’ planning due to a nursing home being on the same powerline and for which a generator was needed to maintain power to the home.

The work was made easier with the new 26’ MEWP.  For more info on both our MEWPs see the details on our website here.

Our new 25.6m Cherry Picker (MEWP)

Our new 25.6m Articulated Truck Mounted Platform/4×4 MAN truck has arrived and is available for hire should you need some extra height.

It has a huge outreach of some 12.5m and full details may be found on our website shortly.

Our shorter 14m cherry picker (the yellow one) is better for work in confined spaces where the lorry base of this new one would be too big.

Both are available for hire.

Pollarding willows in Cricklade

What a difference a day or two makes!  Here are some pics of Trevor and Rich undertaking a re-pollard for Wiltshire County Council in Cricklade; started last Thursday in the snow and completed on Monday in the sunshine.  The job was to re-pollard five willow trees on an area of open space.  The trees had previously been pollarded and the height of the trees ranged from 12-20m.  Our Cherry Picker came in useful!

60m hedge reduction Worton, Devizes

The pictures show us half-way through a large reduction on a 60m hedge which had grown to 65′ in Worton Village, Devizes.  Following the unusually high winds in May, several branches had broken off and there was a further risk of more damage, so permission was sought from Wiltshire County Council as the hedge/trees were within a conservation area.

The work was then scheduled, needing our large cherry picker, and we recycled all the chip and timber locally.
