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.
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.
