Stump Grinding (for Kier) - Basingstoke, Hampshire
by Daniel Green
CHTS were asked to grind out a series of stumps from the side of the Basingstoke Fire Station by Kier Construction. These stumps were a result of the removal of some trees that had grown too large and over the fire station itself.
We arranged for a domestic surveyor to attend the site and record their findings and note any works required to these trees, including any specialist equipment that would be needed to complete this job safely. With this information, they were able to create an appropriate work method statement and risk assessment.
Due to the large size of the stumps we were able to use our tracked Jenson Stump Grinder. This grinder has a remote control so the operative can stay a safe distance from the job at all times.
All of the grindings were used to backfill the voids created by the grinder.
