Felling a large oak tree in Bramhall

This was an interesting job involving felling a large oak tree in Bramhall, Stockport. After pollarding, then sectionally felling the main trunk, we used our Carlton stump grinder to fully remove all traces of the tree.
You can see from the photos why our client needed the services of their local Arundel Tree Surgeons! The tree was causing substantial damage to the building as can be seen in the top image.

Night time cat rescue

Another successful cat rescue in Wilmslow, this time in the dark. The moggy was perched 5 meters out on a rotten branch, 15 meters up a mature Ash tree. Since our last cat rescue, it seems the feline community have embraced the media age… and are now happy to pose for photos!

Tree felling expert climbs higher than ever

Peter Duckworth, director of Arundel Tree Surgeons put his skills to the test this week whilst on a short break to Chamonix. He successfully summited Mont Blanc, Europe’s highest mountain.

After an early 2am start, Peter reached the summit at 8am.
More details to follow shortly.

Cat Rescue in Wilmslow!

Sometimes, we can leave the chainsaw in the van! The call came through – a kitten stuck up a 35m Redwood tree in Wilmslow – children distressed – can we help? Arundel to the rescue. The tree was sizeable, and the only way to get at the scared moggy was to climb.
The tree in question
Ropes were prepared,  bag at the ready.

Fifty five minutes later – success! Pete had abseiled back down with the kitten safely secured in a rucsac. One repatriated cat, several happy children, and another satisified client. (Can you believe – we didn’t manage to grab a photo of the kitten. Rest assured, the little cute critter is now safely back where he belongs!)
