Removal of a poplar tree for a development company in Chorlton, Manchester

As one of the largest poplar trees in Manchester, at around 120ft, this giant of Manchester had become far too big for its location in between two properties, that were undergoing extensive refurbishment, in Chorlton, Manchester.

The trees root system had severely damaged both driveways and the public footpath. Concerns of damage to the properties foundations were also raised and the decision to fell the tree was reached.

Having checked the tree had no preservation order, Steve used all of his years experience to safely climb the tree via rope access. Expertly section felling the poplar down to its main stem. The huge amount of debris was chipped systematically by the team as it came down, keeping the ground area safe and unimpeded.

A man lift was brought in to enable safe sectioning of the stem that still stood at around 30ft and had a 5-6ft circumference at that height. Finally, tractor trailer units were brought to site and the enormous amount of timber was removed before the stump was ground away.

On this particular job we were visited by a tree officer from Manchester council who had heard the tree was being felled and had stopped in to see that the work was being carried out in an appropriate way.

He was impressed with our work and the size of the tree and commented on how it possibly being one of the largest trees in Manchester. However, he understood the negative impact it was having on the properties affected and left happy that all work was being carried out by a professional tree surgery company. This is the difficult and skilled work Cutting Edge Tree Care is renowned for.

Steve thank you once again for all your hard work sorting out our trees. It is wonderful to actually have someone as good and efficient as you are to help us. As usual you arrived punctually, did exactly as we asked and tidied up afterwards. Thank you again.

Christine, Alderly Edge

Have since used Cutting Edge Tree Care twice again on the large conifer hedges at our house In Mobberley. What can I say brilliant job again.

Sue and John, Romiley

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Steve and Cutting Edge for the work completed on our garden. Having 2 trees completely removed and a further 2 trees cut back has brought in much more sunlight and has transformed our garden into a much lighter space. Extra garden waste was cleared and everything was left in a very clean and tidy manner. A very professional job completed in a surprisingly quick time, I can certainly give Cutting Edge Tree Care a glowing recommendation!

Gareth, Chisworth, Glossop

Andrew Hardy (Sales Manager) Lookers, Stockport

Dear Steve, Thank you for all your help applying for permission to prune the trees in my garden which have preservation orders on them. I am very pleased with the way you have pruned the trees – it has given the garden and house much more light. Kind regards.

M. Eden, Mobberley

We used Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield after they were recommended to me by one of my clients. We had a large sycamore tree over hanging kennels and exercise area that was in poor health and a nuisance. We were really impressed with the service Steve provided from checking for a tree preservation order to the skilful way in which the tree was climbed and taken down. Especially as the tree was over lots of obstacles (fences / buildings etc) all sustained zero damage. At the end off the work the areas were cleared and tidied really well and they cut and moved all timber ready for us to use on our fire. Great job will continue to recommend to my clients, friends and family.

Sue (Director), Chadkirk Boarding Kennels, Romiley

Just wanted to say that we have used Steve from Cutting Edge Macclesfield on behalf of our clients on several occasions over the last 12 months and what a fantastic service they have provided. Really nice to have contractors that keep to arranged appointments and carry out all work required with minimum fuss and maximum quality. We have also had great feedback from landlords and tenants themselves. Many thanks again Steve and we look forward to using you again soon.
