Craning trees into rear garden
Our clients were undertaking a refurbishment programme at their home in Kensington, London and wished to add trees to their rear garden, which had no vehicular access. We had been acclimatising their carefully selected trees at our Tree & Hedge Nursery in Iver, Buckinghamshire for the previous twelve months, waiting for the house renovations to be completed.
We called in an expert crane hire company, who used their 100 tonne mobile crane to lift the six large rootball trees into the rear garden using our own Newman Frame, which is a bespoke attachment for lifting trees with care, over the rooftops. The trees were carefully positioning directly into the pre-prepared planting pit, in the rear garden.
The trees were:
- Box head Tilia cordata or small-leaved limes
- Multi stemmed Amelanchier lamarckii or snowy mespilus
- Mature Acer palmatum Bloodgood or Japanese maple
The works, which were undertaken by in-house experts, included two days of onsite preparation, a full road closure, planting and project management.
This is an example of the complicated projects that we can undertake; from sourcing specific species, delivery using our own vehicles and planting using our own experienced installation team; that is the Practicality Brown difference.
