Picturesque Tree Surgery at Escot House – Travel Channel Shorts
We were recently approached by Original Concept Productions to see if we would be interested in having them film us carrying out tree surgery works to make a short film to be aired on the Travel Channel. We are really pleased with how it turned out and a nice take on the work we carry out. This job was reducing a large old Turkey Oak to a habitat trunk. We use special cuts to tear branches to mimic natural branch failures so that the remaining stump looks as natural as possible. Its currently being shown on the channel at the moment if you manage to catch it!
We received the following feedback from Mr & Mrs E, from Ottery St Mary, following works we carried out for them in December 2017:
“We missed the removal of the 80ft Cedar Tree as we are not at the property full time yet. We arrived on the 3rd day to see the massive stump being cut away bit by bit. When they had finished there was not a leaf to be seen, the clean up was fantastic.
The next day another group came to grind out what was left of the stump. As this tree was on a large mound, we were worried about how it would look when they had finished. No problem at all, they filled in the large hole with the ground around the tree and then flattened it with the digger head, leaving it a much more usable area. Once again they cleaned up thoroughly and left us with nothing to do!
We received the following feedback from Mr S, a customer in Woodbury this week regarding some tree surgery works carried out in December 2017:
“Carried out in a professional manner. They left the garden clean and tidy having removed all the debris. Considering the only access was through the garage they did everything to protect the material I had in there.”
Another week and another huge tree to take down. This 100 foot plus Lucombe Oak was at least 300 years old and was at risk of collapse. We reduced the tree to retain a habitat stick for potential bat roosts and the other habitat features. Great location and great weather for November.
