They don't come much larger than this! This 100 foot Conifer with a massive girth was located in Helensburgh. It predated the house that was built beside it and unfortunately it grew so tall and wide that in the end the owner could touch the trunk and the wall of his house as he stood between them.
For safety and light purposes the owner wished the tree to be felled and the stump removed. It took approximately 10 days to dismantle the tree and remove all evidence of it. This is exceptional it has to be said. Most trees can be taken down within a working day with the stump perhaps removed at the time or later at the owners discretion. We are sympathetic as to how we take down or shape trees.
As trees often out live us and are so important to the atmosphere we will always try to work on them with the longevity of the tree and overall landscape in mind. However in the case of the big, dangerous or dead trees that need to be felled our climbing expertise and the experience is what is required for a safe, clean job.
The owner of the house took all these photos and was fascinated by the process!
"Really the best tree surgeons in the area. Knowledgable and super tidy. The stumps in the garden were removed and you would never know they had been there. Competitive price and professional team. Highly recommend!"
