Sycamore Removals in Mary Tavy, Tavistock

Project Snapshot

This project required Sycamore Removals in Mary Tavy, Tavistock. Our tasks included removing two large sycamores from along the driveway, to ensure the safety of the house and neighbouring property. We also had to re-pollard several eucalyptus trees in the back garden, back to previous points – in line with the cyclical nature of the style of pruning.

The Challenge

The sycamore trees in question, with their tall height and wide canopies, were situated on top of a banked hedgerow, posing a potential threat to both the client’s and the neighbour’s homes. After shedding some limbs, the client decided to prioritise safety, which led to the agreement of the Sycamore Removals in Mary Tavy. The proximity of power lines near the trees made the removal process more challenging. Whilst the second sycamore was being finished, the smaller eucalyptus trees were quickly re-pollarded. Re-pollarding can be done efficiently by cutting back to previous points, instead of having to decide where to make cuts.

The Solution

Careful rigging techniques were instrumental in avoiding any damage to the power line or endangering the climber. During the large sycamore removals, our expert knowledge allowed us to use our skills throughout the process to the best of our abilities. We had already sheathed the power lines and visually inspected them for any damage, to ensure safe climbing around them. After confirming this, we worked together in the rain and high winds for three days to safely dismantle each tree, removing all woodchips and logs from the site to ensure a clean site.

The power lines never posed an issue as the rigging system was set up on the opposite side of the tree, and the tree was dismantled in small enough pieces to make sure that it didn’t come anywhere near it.

Some large logs and rings, which came from the second sycamore stem, were rigged directly into the back of the truck for ease of loading and significantly reduced cutting time.
