Tree removal of failed poplar trees

Removal of mature Lombardy Poplar Trees following a tree survey at Blackheath School for Girls.

A number of Lombardy Poplar Trees were removed following a tree survey that highlighted substantial decay in a number of mature trees within the school grounds.

The image below shows one of our tree surgeons  standing within one of the trees demonstrating the amount of decay within the tree, this also highlights the importance of tree surveys for customers that manage or own land that contain mature trees, it also demonstrates the effectiveness of a qualified tree consultant  carrying out a tree survey.

Due to the condition of some of the trees, many were unsafe to climb and were therefore felled using a 32ton winch as a means of an additional safety factor; prior to felling a nesting survey was carried out on each individual tree to ensure that no nesting birds were present.

Removing Mature Trees That Overhang A Neighbours Garden

Removing overhanging trees that overhand a neighbours gardens is never easy especially when the vast majority of the tree canopy is within the neighbours garden. This particular job was a little sensitive as the neighbours were very concerned about such large trees being removed directly over their garden as it contained a garden office.

Ash Tree Removal

We utilised modern rigging equipment which allowed us to lower large branches that overhung the neighbours boundaries to safely land within a safe space, rather than carrying out work in the neighbours garden and limiting any damage to neighbours garden.

To mitigate this, we meticulously lowered every section of the tree using tree surgery techniques, lowering each section back into the customers garden. We also spent an amount of time with the neighbours explaining how the work would be carried out and how we would protect their garden.

This is shown in the images, where you can see the different coloured rigging lines that indicate their load capacity, being used with the use of a lowering device that is anchored to the tree. This creates friction that enables the speed of lowering a branch or timber to be carried out under control, which also allows the device to be operated by one person.

The tree was removed down to a stump where the tree stumps were then removed by one of our stump grinders to allow for landscaping and replanting.

A new year for London and Kent Tree Surgeon

Another year for Crown Tree Surgeons sees the start of the year carrying out tree inspections at many of the south east golf clubs and open spaces.

A tree made of dreams

Trees come in all shapes and sizes across London and Kent some can come problematic with our outdoor spaces shrinking due to home improvements and developments.

No matter how big a tree is its important to think about the potential  impact in years to come.

Planting a tree in the right area can save a tree from being removed in later years to soon especially where a tree has been planted on a property boundary.

Neighbours can inherit a tree that may not be suitable for there outdoor space causing them to take action in cutting back a crown of a tree back to there boundary line leaving the tree looking visually unappealing.

As well as maintaining a tree removing dead wood and crossed limbs and ensuing good soil conditions would be a easy way of helping a tree along its journey and give it the best chance possible of survival. In some cases the advice of a tree surgeon may be useful if you have an already established mature tree we can offer free site inspection on all mature trees on your property at no cost.

Call or e mail the office today to book an appointment with one of our tree surgeon.
