Crown Reduction on Busy High Street - April 2019

Salcey were asked to reduce the crown of a large tree on the High Street in Bromley. The tree is a large London Plane tree which had outgrown its location and situated in a highly pedestrianised area outside the Direct Line Group, Richmal Crompton Public House and shopping centre.  

Salcey arranged for the suspension of adjacent parking bays to enable our works rig to park safely and mobilised additional staff to ensure the safe monitoring and control of passing public as the work was carried out. The crown was reduced and deadwood removed to minimise the risk of branch failure in a public area. The picture is taking during the reduction works.

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.

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.
