This week we have been doing some professional tree work in Norfolk…
The work was be carried out for Breckland District Council and the tree was being dismantled as it had decay in the main trunk. The tree was approximately 175-225 years old which is a reasonable age for a Beech tree.
The work had to be approved by the tree officer as it had a TPO on (Tree Preservation Order).
On this particular tree had various cavities and possible nest and roosting sites, we carried out a wildlife assessment for Bats and nesting birds. We sent this report and any pictures of are findings into Breckland Council.
Once we got the approval we could then organise the traffic management and book in start dates for the work to commence. The council have to be informed with the dates and the type of traffic management needed so they can make sure no other work is planed on the same road at the same time they will also suggest start and finish time on busier roads to avoid peak traffic times.
