The annual hedge trim at a long-standing client nr Devizes, mainly very old and large yew hedges which required a mixture of MEWPS to be able to reach them all, with some being 30ft high and 20ft wide in places. It’s a good time of year to give them a trim.
Clear results were showing the cross-section of decay present in a tree removed from the car park of a soon-to-open children’s home in Westbury in the grounds of the former Chalford House Hotel. This was all confirmed in the PICUS report. As you can see, the tree looked perfectly healthy from the outside but had to be taken down as it was unsafe, especially over a car park. And we needed to wait until the birds had finished nesting to undertake the work.
Well done by all involved; the new spider MEWP proving its worth, along with the timber crane o remove the timber; no heavy lifting at CC Ltd!
Back to finish off some hedge trimming that required a little more reach at Clyffe Hall in Lavington! We had been there earlier when we cut all the formal hedges in the gardens, but could not reach the larger yews. So a return visit with our ‘red’ 23m tracked MEWP was needed so we could finish the job. See details of our MEWPS and other hire items here

This was the start of a 2-week stint on the A338 at Cholderton for WCC Highways. Our task was to remove and cut back 40 ash trees which had grown to 100 feet and which were all dying with Ash Dieback. Because of this disease, the trees were dangerous and had to be removed.
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.
