Felling a dead Acacia in Timperley, Manchester

This large dead Acacia was posing a serious hazard to users of a car park behind that some large branches were overhanging. There was just room in the garden next door for the tree to be felled. The tree was leaning against the felling direction so some careful planning was needed.

The view from the car park.

Some heavy branches were removed from the back of the tree to make the centre of gravity more favourable. A couple of large branches were removed from the side so it would not catch other trees as it fell. Parts of the tree were braced together to prevent it splitting apart during the fell.

A deep gob was taken out to undermine the trees centre of gravity.

Before – The huge crown on this beech tree was completely over-shadowing the garden it was in, and several of the neighbouring gardens.  The customer wanted us to severely pollard the tree completely removing the crown and just leave a trunk.  We advised him that this would risk killing the tree, which was certainly not his intention.  We advised him that if two large sections of the tree and a large branch overhanging his garden were removed then this would dramatically thin the crown and lift it significantly to allow much more light into all the gardens and reduce the branches overhanging one of the neighbours.  This method would maintain a more natural form and be far less detrimental to the tree’s health.

This beech tree in Chorlton had been pollarded over 30 years ago. The new growth had developed into a substantial crown that was completely over-shadowing several small gardens below. The neighbours all agreed that they would like the crown brought down to a manageable size that would let more light into all their gardens. The tree was pollarded less severely than the previous time and several forks were left to allow access to the crown that would develop in the future, keeping it manageable.
