Beech Reduction - August 2018

Salcey were asked to assess the condition of a mature Beech at st Laurence Church in Weston Underwood. Our Arboricultural Consultant carried out a tree condition  survey  and  found it had numerous cavities from previous pruing wounds and hollowing of the main stem was observable within larger wounds. 

The tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order and Salcey managed the planning process for it's client with the Local Authority and mobilised an experienced crew to reduce the crown to reduce the risk of branch shedding over the church yard and highway. The picture is taken during the reduction works. 


Partially Collapsed Poplar - May 2018

Salcey were asked to dismantle a partially collapsed Poplar which was within striking distance of Langford Lane, Kidlington. The tree was shedding branches and several large limbs were leaning over the road posing a safety risk to passing vehicles and pedestrians. 

Due to the condition of the tree the crown was dismantled working from a 33 metre Mobile Elevated Work Platform. The close proximity of the road required the mobilisaiton of temporary two way lights to create a safe work zone and a team of six Arborists assisted the removal work. The tree was cut to a standing stem approximately 4 metres above ground level to act as a habitat pollard. 


Ongoing Tree Maintenance Contract - April 2018

Salcey have recently enjoyed completing various pruning work to trees on the grounds of a large site in Northampton. This is part of an ongoing maintenance contract which we have been completing since 2014.

The work was varied and included crown reductions to mature Horse Chestnuts and Lime trees, Lime pollards, dismantling a Cedar utilising a 26m MEWP and routine deadwooding. This work was necessary for routine maintenance and to minimise the risk to public in the area in th event of branch shedding or tree failure.
