This large Oak tree was removed due to its proximity to a listed building in Warley. It would have taken about four days to remove by conventional rigging techniques, so we decided to use a crane. The crane enabled us to take off large piece of the tree at once and we had it down by 1pm, the rest of the day and the day after, was taken up with cutting and removing the large volume of logwood.
Sometimes, a simple crown lift is all that is required to prune a tree. In these photo's, an oak was crown lifted over a roof to clear the tiles and guttering and also to enable more light through the lower windows. The second photo shows a 'vista prune'. The Ash was lifted to give a much nice view of some lovely countryside Bordeaux.
