Tree Surgeons Callington
Our Tree Surgeons Callington have recently been asked to fell a pine tree. This was for a couple who live on the outskirts of Callington. After the initial enquiry we visited the site and met with the home owners. The home owners actually planted the tree themselves many years ago. A quote was provided promptly and accepted, leading to a short “turn around” from initial customer contact through to job completion.
Carrying out the job
Due to its vigorous growth, the tree was now compromising the draw on the chimney. This was causing ‘downdraft’ when high winds were encountered. It was decided that felling the tree was the better option instead of a crown reduction as pines don’t always respond well to reductions.
Rather than simply felling the tree from the ground and due to its proximity to the house, shrubs, borders and fence line surrounding the property. Therefore, we decided to climb the tree and dismantle it in manageable section,. This was so our tree surgeons Callington could control the situation to ensure no damage was caused to the house or garden.
We stacked the branch wood on site as the customer was happy to deal with that himself and we cut all the wood into rounds for him to split, stack and season ready for next winter.
There was a small stand of hazel and little oak trying hard to grow from the shade underneath the pine. We removed these as well as they had poor form after being suppressed by the pine for many years. This also minimised any future chimney related problems. The hazel, being a coppice species. It will soon start to grow in the spring and fill the gap the pine once filled. At least now it is a more manageable size for our customer to deal with.
We got lucky with the weather and had some lovely early November sunshine and light winds. Ideal conditions for working in. We’re making the most of it before the winter storms arrive bringing wind and rain!
As we were working on the tree you could see the draw on the chimney improving as each branch was removed. Always good to provide a solution to a problem.
