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.

Very large tree canopy before section felling

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.

Remaining tree trunk left after section felling with tree surgeon stood next to it for scale

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!

Tree stump left ready for carving

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.

Hi Steve, Many thanks yet again for a superb job. We have been more than happy to pass you on to our family and friends. We shall be giving you a ring when our trees require further attention.

Bernard and Kath, Tytherington, Macclesfield

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

Thank you Steve for your quick and professional response to the removal of a large dead and dangerous tree at our angling club. I would recommend Cutting Edge Tree Care to anyone.

James, Cheadle, Cheshire

To Steve and Cutting Edge Tree Care Macclesfield. Just a quick note say many thanks for the swift response to my call for help. You and your company provided a first rate job cutting back our tree lined borders and removing all the debris. Very quick, very professional and at a good price too! I will have no problem using your company when the need arises again.

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.
