This week one of the teams of Arboricultural Contractors in Norfolk have been working on a mature Copper Beech tree.
The tree was highlighted in a survey undertaken by us as it had the fruiting bodies of Meripilus giganteus (Giant polypore) at the time of the survey.
This causes white rot and effects the root structure of the host tree.
The problem with this particular Fungi it that there is no way of checking the level of decay without exposing the root structure which is a task in it self, so once the tree has been diagnosed it generally has to be removed.
The Fungi is quite common it mature Beech trees and the one in the picture is 200+ years which is a good age for a Beech.
The job itself was to sectional fell the tree leaving a 2m conservation stump which in time would break down and create habitat for invertebrates etc.
The day started with a risk assessment and wildlife survey followed by setting up the site.
Today Tom was going to climb so he started by throwing a throw-line up into the crown of the tree to ready to install his climbing limb line. The tree was located in a larger enough space to dismantle without any rigger kit so this help save time and cost to the client, the brash was chipped into heaps for use around the site and all the timber was cross cut into manageable pieces and left for the care workers and ground staff.
This is what our client said regarding this work:[/et_pb_text][et_pb_team_member admin_label=”Person” name=”Colin Crisp” position=”Maintenance Co-ordinator, The Grove Leonard Cheshire Disability” animation=”left” background_layout=”light” use_border_color=”off” border_color=”#ffffff” border_style=”solid”]
Just to say thanks for the works to our trees carried out this week.
We are very pleased with the manner in which Tom and his team carried this out. The guys worked extremely hard in a professional manner. The area was kept clean and tidy at the end of each day and nothing was too much trouble for them. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to others.
