We recently completed a three-day project aimed at enhancing footpath safety outside a school in South Tyneside, by pruning and removing trees.
Given short notice, we promptly assembled a quotation to trim back overhanging branches from a cluster of trees adjacent to a footpath and highway. Our goal was to minimize disruption, especially as the work was scheduled during term time.
To meet the project’s timeframe, our team of IPAF qualified personnel utilized a Mobile Elevated Working Platform (MEWP or Cherry Picker), while our City & Guilds certified tree climbers pruned and reduced the crowns of numerous trees over three days.
For smaller trees along the fence line, our proficient ground-based chainsaw and brush cutter operators removed them efficiently. Throughout the process, we maintained a clean and tidy site ensuring the debris was contained and removed.
By dividing the job into manageable blocks, we successfully managed traffic and ensured that the footpath and roadway remained fully accessible at the beginning and end of the school day.
Through effective communication with the principal contractor, we completed the entire operation within the allocated timeframe and budget.
