Emergency Eucalyptus Removal with Crane

Red Squirrel Tree Surgery are approved and regulated by the Arboricultural Association and carry out all work to government and industry standards.

This eucalyptus tree had fallen on a house during high winds. It was a complicated job as the tree was balanced on the corner of the roof. But it had not yet caused much damage to the house. This situation made the job very risky for us to take on, as any slight movement could have made the fallen tree roll, resulting in major damage to the house.

Following a full risk assessment, it was concluded that the best option was to use a 100ton crane to remove sections of fallen tree over the house in a safe and controlled way.

We did a total of 5 lifts over the house in very wet and windy weather. The sections were then lowered to where our truck and wood chipper were and processed by our ground team.

No further damage was caused, leaving very happy clients and neighbours!
