Our team of tree surgeons in Norfolk have been doing some reduction work…The work had to be approved first this was done six weeks in advance to start date and involved sending in a TWAF ( Tree Work Application Form) to the district council. The proposed work in then inspected by the local countryside/tree officer who then either approves the work or recommends a different speciation this is then sent out to both the applicant and agent. When carrying out work for district councils we always contact them to notify them of the start date to save them visiting site because of neighbourly complaints.
The job was for a domestic client and the work included some branch reductions, dead wood removal and sectional felling. The trees were all located within a conservation area and were a mix of both mature and semi mature trees, some of which were in decline and over a busy road.
The picture show a climber carrying out some branch reduction work on a mature Oak tree. The tree was located within the rear garden so there was no access for a MEWP (Mobile Elevated Work Platform) so we had to use rope and harness to access the tree. The work on this particular tree was being done because of some branch die back, so the idea is to cut back to live wood leaving a good growth point to try a get the tree to response and create new growth.
