A tall redwood heritage tree was at risk of losing branches in strong winds. Nelmac's experienced tree team was engaged to prune it, with redwoods requiring a specific process to follow. After several site visits and liaison between our Arborist and Council staff, an operations plan was put into action.
Traffic management was required and Nelmac staff worked with landowners and informed neighbouring properties of the upcoming disruption. Because the tree was protected, Nelmac sought consents from the landowner.
Site access issues, lane closures, and the height of the tree all presented challenges during the project. With advance planning and expert skills by Nelmac's arborists, the pruning went to plan and the client was pleased. All health and safety precautions were taken to ensure no incidents.
