Here are some photos of Frontier removing a large Sycamore below Comiston Road. The tree had Kretzschmaria deusta (an aggressive wood-decay fungus) around the buttresses so an 80' work platform was used as the tree was unsafe to climb. Traffic management (4-way traffic signals) was undertaken by Contraflow Ltd and we had to obtain a time-consuming Road Occupation Permit. We were allowed on the road between 0930 and 1530 however with half an hour at either end to set-up and take-down the traffic management that only allowed us 5 hours to do the job and remove all brash and timber off site for recycling. 7 operatives were on site and we used the tractor crane winch to pull rope-lowered brash and timber up the bank for lifting onto the road for processing. An interesting job!
We're delighted to launch our new website. We'll be keeping it up-to-date with photos, news and helpful information about tree problems, diseases and common questions. Our new site is fully responsive, and will be much easier to access on your mobile or tablets.
Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions!
