Here are the team dismantling a Norway Maple as it showed extensive decay at pollard heads and fruiting bodies on a large pruning wound. The lorry crane with fly jib was essential for this dismantle and to haul the timber offsite for recycling. An interesting job very well executed during wintery showers.
It dropped a large primary limb on the public road. With this history of failure our client was keen to have the tree removed. We notified the council of tree work within the Conservation Area. We had to gain a Road Occupation Permit from Edinburgh Council, arrange formal traffic management with Contraflow Ltd and bring in the crane and the MEWP. Thankfully everything went to plan and all of the arisings were removed off site for recycling.
