Deadwooding - Hythe Town Centre, Hampshire
by Daniel Green
CHTS were asked to provide a quote to work on several prominent trees in the Hythe town centre car park. The works required were mostly deadwooding to remove the risk of falling branches and limbs into the busy car park.
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.
One of our many domestic teams attended site when the quote had been accepted to proceed with these works. After setting up a series of cones and signs to notify pedestrians of the works happening and creating exclusion zones to ensure the public's safety, apprentice Kyle under the watchful eye of his Team Leader took the climb to complete the works.
Using only his silky saw, Kyle navigates the trees crown removing any dead limbs. These limbs were processed into woodchip on site and brought back to our waste management facility in Exbury.
