Today we have been carring out some emergency tree work in Norfolk. The tree was a Weeping Willow…
The tree had lost a large limb and had it had caused a fracture in the main trunk. This was due to the recent high winds and heavy rain.
The customer had called us that evening but because of the weather and the fact that the tree was not likely to harm anyone or anything we felt that it would but safer and cheaper for the customer to leave to leave it until the morning.
In the morning we organised for a MEWP to be on site as the tree had extended limbs and no suitable anchor point in which to work from. The tree was also over a large conifer making it awkward to get the braches to the ground without getting hung up in the conifer.
On returning to the site in the morning we carried out a risk assessment and discussed the safest and easiest way to deal with the tree. We then set up the work site with sign sand tape.
Chris one of our IPAF operators decided he would go up in the platform (MEWP) and carry out the work wile the rest of us would cut up and stack the brash as it came down to the floor.
