Last week we had three trees taken down on the Beechley Drive site – I’ve never had the chance to watch tree surgeons close up before and it was fascinating!┬áHere’s some pictures, and look out for a post on how you can become a tree surgeon coming soon!

These ‘stirrups’ have spikes on them so the tree surgeons can climb the lower trunk

If you look closely you can see the tree surgeon removing the lower branches

As the lower branches are removed, the surgeon climbs higher, chopping as he goes

The top of the tree comes off next

And then the trunk is removed from the top downwards

And here’s a very short video of the top coming off…TIMBERRRRR!!!!!!
