Removal of two Beech trees from a beautiful Woodbridge garden


The location of this particular job was a beautiful private garden in Woodbridge. The garden was meticulously looked after by the customer and had some stunning specimen trees. Our work started with a survey to inspect the range of mature trees.

The project

Following our inspection, we had concerns regarding the condition of two Beech trees. We carried out a PICUS decay test which confirmed our fears. There was substantial decay in the lower trunks, which rendered the trees unsafe. With a Tree Preservation Order in place to protect the trees, we consulted and advised the local tree officer that the trees required removal. Removal was carried out on a 5-day notification, as the urgency of the situation was prevalent, given the dangerous condition of the trees.

With the location providing poor access into the rear garden, a long drag to remove any debris, and other various obstacles below and around the trees, we took advantage of our superb narrow access platform. It allowed us to complete the work safely and alleviate any damage to the surrounding area.

Both of the trees required sectional dismantling, 12 inches at a time, given the location and need to protect it. We gradually dismantled the tree to stump level, and the stumps were then ground out to ground level. We then removed all debris from site with both the timber and woodchip from this job recycled for other uses.

The outcome

This particular tree surgery project in Woodbridge, Ipswich, was a testing one for our team. However, the beautiful garden created a great environment to work in and a rewarding project. The client was thrilled we were able to work swiftly in removing the dangerous trees, albeit sad to see the loss of two established Beech.

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.
