If you were out and about doing some sight-seeing in London in the new year, you might have spotted Artemis team members at work in the capital. Artemis were cherry-picked to carry out maintenance work on trees lining The Queen’s Walk on the south bank of the Thames.
A row of 38 Wild Cherry trees lines the pedestrian walkway and we were tasked with reducing the crowns of the trees by up to 3m to make them more uniform in size and enhance the appearance of the avenue. The Queen’s Walk is an integral part of the Jubilee Walkway, created in 1977 to mark the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, running from Lambeth Bridge to Tower Bridge past several tourist attractions including The London Eye and Southbank Arts Centre.
The trees are situated within a Conservation Area and Artemis arranged the necessary permits, carried out the work during the annual maintenance closure of The London Eye and adhered to Borough of Westminster’s security procedures.
If you find yourself in central London in the spring, take a promenade along the south bank of the Thames and enjoy the even line of trees which will be in full blossom and at their finest.
