Project to transplant important trees

Practicality Brown Ltd transplanted 29 Commemorative trees at a care home in Ascot to make way for a new building.  All the trees were in the 20-50cm girth size and were carefully pruned ready for transplanting into a woodland walk on the same site, which we undertook with our tree spade machine, enriching the environment for the residents.

Large Trees for maximum impact

With a reputation for planting big trees, we were asked to plant three very large, semi mature tulip trees (Liriodendron), at a private garden on the Oxfordshire/ Berkshire borders. Over 13 metres tall and girth circumferences of 100cm+, these trees required careful transportation, lifting and handling during installation. See the hedge & tree projects page for more images.

Screening Trees Craned into London back garden

Screening Trees

A client living in Thurloe Square, London (near the Victoria and Albert Museum) wanted trees as a screen in their rear garden, which had no vehicular access.

Our solution was to use a crane to lift the Hornbeam (Carpinus betulus) trees into position.  With the limited access, this project required road closures; then each of the trees were when lifted over the rooftops and positioned directly into the prepared planting pit in the rear garden.
