Tree Surgeons in Norwich

Today we our tree surgeons in Norwich have been removing a Willow tree for Anglian Water
The tree had split and was lodged up over a public footpath.
 
We arrived on site and assessed the situation and talked through how we were going to tackle the tree safely. The next step was to survey for nesting birds as the tree was covered in ivy. During the spring we will looked for the nest and then if none are found we then sit and watch for 30mins while having a cuppa to see if any birds come or leave the tree.
 
The next stage was to carry out a risk assessment and set up the site, this was done using tree cutting hazard signs and hazard warning tape.
We could then start taking down the remaining tree piece by piece this was done using a 3 man crew, 2 banksman stopping anyone walking under the tape and onto site while the third person did the sawing. Once the sawing was complete all the crew members could start moving the brash and timber.
 
Normally on a site like this we would leave the trunk standing as a habitat monolith, but on this occasion Anglian Water insisted that the tree was removed, so instead we created habitat piles with the wood and brash.
