Ipswich Birch tree removal due to it failing in high winds


The recent storms have seen the loss of many trees up and down the country, and it has certainly kept our team at Elite Trees very busy indeed.  Emergency jobs are no stranger to us, and the storms have tested our capacity as one of the more significant professional trees surgeons in the region.

The project

We received a call from one of our long-time regular customers and were able to respond within a few hours. Our client was very concerned by the precarious nature of a Birch tree which had blown over in the strong winds. The tree was resting against a neighbours house, and presenting a potential danger to anything nearby.

The tree was insecure and could have potentially damaged the property where it had fallen. Our priority was to support the tree so that no further movement would cause damage to the property or adjacent infrastructure. Using our highly advanced Access Platform, we were able to manoeuvre ourselves to a save position and location so we could carefully dismantle the tree.

With the tree leaning against the house, this was a delicate operation and really couldn’t have been achieved without the use of the access platform. The birch was sectionally dismantled in small bites, so this provided safe passage for our team to remove and protect the property.

The outcome

One rather stressed client soon became an extremely relieved one. Fortunately, the tree hadn’t damaged the property, and no harm was done to any of the local structures. It was also fortunate that the point of impact to the house was an area that didn’t have an upstairs window. The outcome or all was perfect. No damage, no more stress and a neat and tidy job completed.

Elite carried out both fencing and tree work for us. The fencing work consisted of approximately 50 metres of new fencing and the removal of a 15m high Holly tree along with stump grinding ready for fresh planting during the spring. Really happy with the final result the team were friendly and made sure everything was left tidy afterwards. Work was competitively priced and clearly a professional business.

Elite Trees replaced my rear fence for me. They were very efficient and friendly from the quoting stage all the way through to finishing the job. Fence looks great and I would not hesitate in recommending them.

Dear Mr Thomas, thank you and your team for an exemplary job with which we are very satisfied. With the multi-stemmed Ash removed, we have been able to see the wood for the trees, so to speak. To avoid unnecessary constraints on future planting, we have decided to have the stump(s) ground out and I understand that you will arrange for that in the near future and look forward to hearing further from you.

Just a note to thank the onsite team for the excellent work carried out behind our property last Friday.

Would like to say that the two guys who came to tackle felling of the Robinia here at my home have done an excellent job, making it all appear so easy

A very professional and friendly service used to remove a very large conifer hedge with all debris removed and the site left very tidy. Wouldn't hesitate in recommending.
