Sycamore Tree Dismantling with Speedline
This sycamore was dismantled using a technique known as a speedline. The branches are lowered and run across a line to a more useful and accessible position, in this case just next to the chipper. A bit more setting up is involved but when possible it is a very time and energy saving method.
Horse Chestnut Tree Dismantling
This rather large Horse chestnut was in severe decline possibly caused by a disease called Phytophthora. There was a lot of die back in the crown and the limbs were becoming weak and dangerous and sadly the tree had to be dismantled and removed.
Ash Trees Dismantling and Felling
These two tall Ash trees had been dropping some rather large branches in the wind, into the garden below. It was decided to take them both down to prevent any further problems.
