Tree Surgeon's Blog - Emergency in Ivybridge
We were called out on an emergency job today on an estate in Ivybridge.
This large beech had split at an awkward height so we used the winch tractor to pull it down to safety after throwlining in our winch cable.
We filled the rest of the day out removing another large beech that was pretty hollow and leant heavily over another beech and lime.
We positioned the winch tractor cleverly to counteract the lean and landed the tree right between two other young specimen in the woodland.
All the timber was stacked ready to be processed for firewood at a later date and pathways cleared to be re-opened for the public to walk around safely again
For all aspects of tree care , estate / woodland management please feel free to get in touch for free estimates and advice from one of our experienced team.
