Today our tree surgeons in Norfolk have been on a mature Oak…
The tree is located on a public green space in Dereham Norfolk owned and managed by Breckland District Council.
The tree has been in a slow decline over a number of years and has had some reduction work done in the past.
The tree has probably decline due to soil excavation and compaction of the surround ground, this can take several years before the tree shows any signs caused by the change in ground conditions.
The job was tree reduce the tree back to live growth points where possible. It is not always possible to carry out the work to BS:3998 as the live growth was very limited and what little live growth there was seemed to be on smaller branches which weren’t really suitable for growth points.
The tree was inspected 3 weeks prior to work commencing and it was decided that we would climb the tree as the ground conditions underfoot were very soft and not suitable for a MEWP. We managed to make the job a lot safer by using a neighbouring tree to anchor the main climbing line in, we also decided not to lower anything but just dismantle in small section allowing it to drop to the floor within are secure work area.
