Leylandii Removal, Stenson Fields

Leylandii Removal, Stenson Fields 002

We removed a fairly large Leylandii tree from a small garden in Stenson Fields. The tree was clearly far to big for its space and very close to a neighbouring house. The tree base had already begun lifting the surrounding fencing. It was around 30ft in height with quite a large base. It isn’t a good idea to plant Leylandii trees so close to houses …

30ft Lime Tree Removal, Mickleover 04

A 30ft Lime tree removal in Mickleover this morning. The tree itself is around 40 years old, but has been pollarded during its lifetime hence the reason it’s only around 30ft, but has a large trunk below the pollard. Our customer was fed up with the regular maintenance, so he wanted the tree taking down leaving around 4ft of the trunk to make into a …

Trimming, Mickleover – Beech and Leylandii Hedge

Trimming, Mickleover 09

Here are two hedges we have just completed in Mickleover, Derby. One was a Beech hedge in the front garden and a largish Leylandii hedge at the rear. The top of the Leylandii towards the back had 2/3 years growth, which was considerably thicker in diameter and the stems had to be cut individually with a saw and fed through the chipper. The rest of …

Here is a small Lime tree removal in a back garden in Littleover. The customer wanted it removing along with a Wild Elder hard reduction next to it.

In a garden on Blagreaves Lane was a small Ashleaf Maple tree that was requested to be removed as it was getting to large for its space. It was a straight forward job lowering sections of the tree to the ground ready for processing. The logs were taken away for good quality firewood. It was a nice job to work on apart the the awful …

Woodland clean up – Little Eaton, Derbyshire

Woodland Clean Up Little Eaton © Gardenscape 06

It sure was one fine day to be working outside. I was asked to clear up a bit of woodland at the front of a house in Little Eaton. There were quite a few self seeded trees, mainly juvenile Sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) and a few messy Elder trees (Sambucus nigra). It’s really opened up the area and it does look a lot tidier now with …

We kicked off this this years trimming season with a Leylandii hedge in Barrow on Trent. It took just over two days to complete both hedges, with the second hedge having all sides trimmed. It was a physically tough job to complete, but really happy with the results. A nicely groomed hedge really does make a garden look great. – Location – Barrow on Trent, …

Two Willow Trees brought down by storm Dorris a few weeks back needed removing. They had both landed in neighbouring gardens. Fortunately, for the homeowners, nothing was to seriously damaged apart from some fencing. Beneath the trees was a stream so both trees were safety released from their trunks and winched onto land to be processed. With willow being a brittle wood it’s prone to …
