Tree felling in Prestbury
This huge cedar tree, in a beautiful Prestbury garden, had started to die back in its upper crown. The property owner asked our tree surgeons for advice on the right course of action.
Our advice was to have the tree assessed by an expert arboricultural consultancy. Unfortunately, the assessment concluded that the tree was a danger to people and property, due to its ill health and lean towards the owner’s property.
Our tree surgeons, therefore, carried out all the necessary council applications for our client, and included in this the full report provided by the arboricultural consultancy. Approval to remove the tree was granted before any works commenced.
The process of removing this huge cedar tree began with our tree surgeons climbing it, via rope and harness, and carefully section felling all of the upper tree canopy.
As the remaining stem or trunk was so large, our friends at Peter Douglas platforms provided us with a suitable hydraulic platform for us to be able to section fell the stem and safely lower it down to the ground.
Having removed the remaining lateral branches, we found that the stem was so big that the machine couldn’t get even close to the top of the tree.
Another larger platform was quickly arranged, however this was still too small to reach the very top of the stem. Therefore, lead tree surgeon, Steve, skilfully used rope and harness to reach the top of the tree and carefully log the stem down to a reachable height for the hydraulic platform.
This provided a stable platform for tree surgeon Steve to carefully section the remaining stem using the largest chainsaw produced (Husquavana 3120) with a massive 42 inch cutting bar!
As always, the client’s grounds were left in an immaculate condition. On this occasion, and at the customers request, the stem was left at around 2-3 metres. This was to allow for a carving that we had arranged for the client.
