Eucalyptus Tree Removal Plymouth

Project Snapshot

This was a Commercial Tree Surgery project for Plymouth Community Homes. We were asked to carry out an Eucalyptus Tree Removal and Stump Removal (grinding) from a very small garden with limited access. The tree spanned over five gardens.

The Challenge

The Eucalyptus Tree was extremely large for its surroundings, estimated at 60ft (not that tall) but spanning over 50ft (quite broad), stretching across five gardens. With a diameter of over 1m at breast height, the root system was affecting structural walls and protruding the entire span of the primary garden.

We were tasked with removing this tree and grinding the stump to below ground level. Due to overhead facilities and the distance between the road and the tree, we were unable to use a crane or any heavy machinery.

The Solution

We decided to climb and take down the tree using rigging techniques. To ensure safety, we utilised our winch bollard to dismantle the tree in a controlled manner and lower all the branches and logs onto a small working area. Afterwards, we processed and removed the waste from the site. To get rid of the stump, we used our narrow access stump grinder, as the garden had two sets of stairs and a very narrow entranceway.

The Results

Despite the challenging weather conditions, our team successfully dismantled and ground out the Eucalyptus Tree. When the rain started, it turned the already slippery tree into a little ice rink and, combined with persistent wind, added to the difficulty. However, our climbers, accustomed to the unpredictable weather of the South West, were undeterred and completed the take with their usual professionalism.
