Tree work at a regular customers rear garden to remove power line interference


Anyone who owns roadside hedgerows, or an abundance of green areas where power lines are also situated, will fully appreciate the need for regular tree trimming around powerlines. Fast-growing hedgerows are particularly regular projects where powerlines are concerned, but a little more unusual for us to trim trees across a rear garden, apart from the repeat work we do for this particular customer.

The project

Our long-term client has one of the most beautiful gardens you will come across. An abundance of specimen trees that have been planted over many years, and surrounded by neatly trimmed and manicured shrubs. A location which is a pure pleasure to work in. The garden has powerlines running across its rear. The trees are directly in line with the powerlines, so continued growth sees sporadic interference with the powerlines.

To safely access the trees, so we could trim back the growth and clear the powerlines, we used our narrow access platform, which enabled us to manoeuvre safely and efficiently around the garden.

Also, safety means we needed to arrange for the local electricity company to attend site and turn off the power supply to the lines. This needed to be actioned before the work was carried out. Being organised is critical for this type of delicate project, and all part of the service we provide.

The outcome

Where powerlines are concerned, you certainly cannot compromise on safety or indeed put our team at risk with such a delicate project. Liaising with electricity boards are common for us, and every time we come across this situation, it is essential to evaluate the health and safety aspect of our work. The outcome was uncharred Elite team members and further aesthetical injection into this beautiful customers garden.

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.

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
