Last week we had a very special project to take on. This eucalyptus has been suffering from Eucalypt gall wasp (Ophelimus sp.) and was looking generally unwell. After digging out a couple of test pits it became apparent that the soil level had been raised around the trees root zone dramatically. This was due to building works the year before thus causing compaction, lack of oxygen to the roots and very dry soil. We decided to insert aeration pipes and insert better, fertile soil with better water holding capabilities. In time we hope the trees roots will find these aeration pipes and improve the health of the tree which our client adores. We hope to post more pics in a years time to show a vast improvement.

We've been carrying lots of remedial works for a school over the holidays. We noticed this fagus tree has had a lot of foot traffic under it causing the the ground to get compacted. To allow the children to keep using this space and prevent any further damage to the feeding roots of the tree, we applied a layer of mulch around the base of the tree and made some log seats for an out door classroom. The mulch will slowly break down and help supply the tree with valuable nitrates and increase the water retentive properties of the soil.

Reducing poplars over a footpath. These trees were on a high lean due to being woodland edge trees so we reduced the weight and risk of the falling.

Here's a Cedar removal we did last year. It's an oldie but a goodie. Enjoy.

Yesterday we installed a dynamic bracing system on a tree with multiple weak unions. The tree stood at the front of a school and was a focal point of the entrance.By installing the braces, it enabled us to conduct a light prune instead of a heavy reduction, leading to large wounds and a unnatural shape.

Tree Surveying doesn't get much better than this. A beautiful place to be with your thoughts for the day.
