Martlesham orchard gets a brand new post and rail fence erected


Rural work is, of course, a standard for our team in typically rural Suffolk, and we do regularly work for local landowners to maintain trees, hedgerows and fences. We also provide the necessary protection to areas where food is grown, and this project had multiple facets to it to protect the valuable orchard.

The project

The project in rural Martlesham, Ipswich, required us to look at a variety of work, including Orchard maintenance. The work was erecting a new fence around the orchard, remove some dead trees including the grinding down of the stumps. We also planted some new fruit trees to add to the established orchard. The main job was to fence off the orchard and protect it from Rabbits and Muntjac Deer. This required two types of netting to be laid onto the new post and rail fence. Stock net to prevent the Deer from getting through the fence into the orchard, and the Rabbit netting to stop the little devils entering from the orchard into the established garden. Traffic from both directions to be halted.

Our team set about the work, firstly erecting the fence and then working on the trees to remove and plant new fruit trees. To build the post and rail fence we made excellent use of our Post Hole Borer machine, which makes the job quick and efficient.

The outcome

We are lucky to work in some beautiful environments, and this project was no exception. Also, a variety of work makes our jobs very interesting. This particular project used an abundance of our team’s skills, and the outcome was a very neat looking orchard with a beautiful new fence and access gate applied. We suspect the Deer and Rabbits may not be as happy as we were with the result.

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.
