Peasenhall - Tree felling
1st Cut Tree Services undertook a contract to fell four very large, unsafe Poplar trees in Peasenhall for the Parish Council. This job had various obstacles to work around. We not only had to consider the considerable size of the trees, but also the surrounding houses, roads, public pathways, telephone cables, and the general public. The 1st Cut Tree Services team is highly experienced in such complicated and precise works. Our team consists of very experienced elevated work platform operators, banksman, riggers and general ground crew, all working together to safely undertake any job.
The trees were in the center of the village next to, and overhanging, the main road. We introduced a lane closure system so that we could control the traffic and have a safe working area under the trees. The work site was cordoned off to prevent the general public walking into our work area. The trees were in close proximity to houses, as well as the road, so controlled dismantling was of the utmost importance. To achieve this a 55 ton crane and a 30 meter elevated work platform were used. Radio communications with ear pieces are used on such large jobs, so that all members of the team are aware of what is going on and can talk to each other over long distances, even with the noise created by the equipment and plant.
