A sample of Element Tree Care`s Case Sudies of their work
Case Study 1.
Diseased Beech tree Crane removal
This Beech tree had been attached by Meripilous Giganteus fungus (see pests and disease section for more information). This particular fungus attacks the root system of trees. Sometimes the tree can live with the fungus for a long period of time without it having a huge effect on the health of the tree however sadly in this circumstance the fungus had very rapidly taken hold and had killed the tree.
Case Study 2.
Removal of conifer trees to reinstate old tennis court
This job was to remove a large number of conifer trees that had originally been planted by the previous owner of the house as a hedge surrounding some tennis courts. Over the years the hedge had not been maintained and had been left to grow into 50-60ft conifer trees. The tennis court had become unusable and grass had completely grown over them.
Case Study 3.
This conifer tree was being removed as it had outgrown its space and was damaging the fence behind. It was growing directly next to a greenhouse so removing the tree meant that nothing could drop onto the glass. In order to do this, a rigging system was used to lower the branches to the ground by rope and pulley.
Case Study 4.
Removal of a spruce tree in Warwick
Many spruce trees have suffered a decline in health over the last year or two. They are showing sparse canopies and dieback giving a brown appearance. On this occasion the tree being removed was not in decline. The roots of the tree had started to undermine the shed and buildings in neighbouring gardens and so the decision was made by the customer to remove it.
Case Study 5.
A very tall eucalyptus tree needed to be removed in Leamington Spa
A eucalyptus tree growing 1.5m from the customer’s house needed to be removed. The tree was approximately 60ft tall with a stem diameter of 36inches. There was a conservatory beneath the tree in the neighbouring garden and the canopy of the tree extended over three different property roofs and gardens. The drop zone (area where branches can be free dropped or lowered) directly beneath the tree was an area approximately 2.5m x 2.5m.
Case Study 6.
Large section of an oak tree turned into a wooden bench
In November 2012 we were asked to make a bench out of a large section of oak stem that the client had kept. The bench was to be placed in the client’s garden once created.
The section of oak was approximately 10ft long and 3.5ft in diameter at its widest. It is estimated that the tree was 250 years old.
