The Marr Mooditj Training Centre in Manning contracted Tree Care WA to remove two large Ficus macrophylla (Moreton Bay) fig trees that were causing considerable damage to nearby buildings and infrastructure. Both trees exhibited poor crown structure due to poor pruning practices having been undertaken many years ago with resulting limb failure occurring now on a regular basis. Both trees were located within a confined location, beside buildings, near infrastructure and with extensive landscaping underneath. Having limited access available for one of our specialty elevated work platforms or being undertaken via conventional climbing and rigging practices due to not being as cost effective.
Tree Care’s WA’s consulting Arborist devised a solution to utilise a large crane to lift and remove each tree systematically in a safe controlled manner. Having utilised large cranes for over 20 years to remove trees in difficult confined locations, we were able to ensure through our extensive experience that potential issues when working nearby to buildings, landscaping, established gardens and retaining walls were eliminated. Both trees were removed section by section to our awaiting crews, trucks and chippers for processing in one day with stump grinding performed the following day.
The client rang the office upon completion to congratulate the business and its skilled personnel on the safe manner and professionalism of how both trees were removed plus the efficiency to complete the works in such a quick time period so as the facilities were not obstructed in their daily operations.
