After only 4 hours we were able to re-open the road! Leaving it clean and safe! Residents on site praised the team for the clean tidy up and the minimal disruption caused! All the resulting debris was taken back to our HQ were 100% of it will be recycled and turned into biomass energy.
Artemis Tree Services Ltd were instructed by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead council to remove a 25m tall pine tree that had been struck by lightning some time ago!
This was made particularly difficult as the tree had 4 bee’s nests nestled between the cracks of the lightning strike! As we know bees are endangered so these had to be removed carefully by our team at midnight on the night prior to the trees removal, whilst accompanied by a bee specialist.
Once the nests were safely removed we could remove the dangerous tree. This involved a full road closure to enable access for the 35 tonne crane! Once the road was closed we were able to remove the tree in 5m sections with all the large branches going into our 12 inch wood chipper and all the large cordwood getting loaded directly onto our 18 tonne Hiab truck.
