Ivy clad Ash fell

This one was a bit of a pain
 
A previously reduced ash that was swamped in ivy

 
Managed to get most of the brash out after finishing a smaller job in the morning
 
 
Then back the next day to get the stems down

 
and everything cleared away

 
One load of chip, two of wood and another of ivy/rakings and sawdust

Yew Tree Fell

Coming to the end of my time working in London for Complete Tree Care, but still time for a few more interesting jobs.


This was a yew tree to fell from yesterday, causing structural and light issues it unfortunately had to come down.

Not a hugely complicated dismantle, the main issue was access, luckily we had access through a neighbours garden (a very well known resident of Richmond) so we had to make sure the garden was left immaculate, hence the boards and tarps






All in all not a bad days work

Big Plane prune away

Quite a lot of urban tree work happens because of the proximity of the trees to buildings and structures. As a result of this we often get jobs where the spec is to 'prune away by x amount of metres' These kind of jobs are never very fun, and never really end up looking very natural as you are often only working on one side or part of the tree.

So when this one came up I assumed it was another run of the mill prune away. Until I actually saw the tree.
That's a 3 section ladder, to give you an idea of scale

The spec on this one was to reduce from the building and reduce the overhang as much as feasible.



 
Quite a tricky climb that required a lot of rigging, the tree was so high we had to tie two rigging ropes together to actually be able to lower the branches to the ground!

A Varied Week

Had a few different Jobs this week so far

First up this huge Lime dismantle

 
 
 
 
Got a bit dusty
 
Then yesterday I got to spend the day helping out with some training a college near London
 


Then most of today was spent pricing some upcoming Rivers jobs, but also found a few minutes to wash the truck and chipper ready for tomorrow
