Dangerous tree removal in Lymington

dangerous tree removal in Lymington.

This Ash tree removal in Lymington was riddled with decay, and whilst climbing it was theoretically possible, a MEWP was chosen as the safer option. Due to the location in a wooded area we needed a compact tracked machine that would also have the required reach to carry out the work.

The good guys at Cutting Edge Plant Hire are specialists in the hire of arb equipment and sorted us out a tracked MEWP which was perfect for the job at hand.

As we got stuck into the tree removal we found the true extent of the decay and were all in agreement that a MEWP was a wise decision on this occasion.

Is climbing ever preferable over using a MEWP?

There are times when it makes more sense to climb a tree than using a MEWP. However, the fact of the matter is, people gravitate to this industry partly for the excitement of being able to climb some huge trees whilst getting paid for the pleasure! For this reason, if a tree has been deemed safe to climb, we would generally choose this option. In recent years MEWP’s have become far more popular in tree work, in no small part due to them being readily available and easy to finance or hire. Its therefore not uncommon to see them in use, with many larger companies specifying they should be used wherever possible in preference to climbing.

At Arbormac Arboriculture we believe in choosing the right tool for the right job, and in some cases, a MEWP is far more beneficial than climbing, even on smaller trees. As a customer of ours, you can rest assured we will choose the option that is the safest and most cost-effective for your individual requirements.
