Crown Reduction - Dibden Purlieu, Hampshire
by Daniel Green
CHTS were asked by a domestic client to provide a quote for a crown reduction to an Oak tree that stood prominently over the rear garden of their property.
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.
A domestic work crew attended site to complete the works. Arborist Hamish took the climb for this one and cut the crowns limbs back by approximately 2 meters to suitable growth points. He worked in small handheld sections to protect the lawn of the rear garden.
All of the larger cut timber was cut to manageable sizes and left on site for our client to use as firewood. The smaller timber was processed into woodchip on site and brought back to our waste management facility.
