Eucalyptus, Aston-on-Trent

Eucalyptus, Aston on Trent

Myself and Lewis (the groundy) tackled this Eucalyptus tree in Aston-on-Trent in South Derbyshire, on a stunningly warm October day. The homeowner was concerned of the lean towards the road, other close by properties and the original brick wall. Gradually as the Eucalyptus trunk adds more annual rings, the diameter of the trunk increases and would eventually knock the wall down. The tree took just …

We were asked to remove 12 conifer stumps from a customers garden. Thankfully the customer that had cut down their Leylandii’s left a foot or so to winch the stumps out. Access to the garden was restricted so this was the most practical method. – Location – Oakwood, Derby Images © Gardenscape –

Here are a row of stunning Lombardy Poplars protected under a TPO. Our customer wanted to lift the crowns to open up the stunning view from his garden. We successfully applied for a 5 metre lift on them. We took the lift to the horizon level still leaving the trees with shape. It looks tidier and gives the impression the garden is bigger. We applied …
