The freak weather we suffered over the bank holiday brought a fair few trees down.

We had a call from a desperate customer who had a willow tree taken down across their drive and were asked if we could clear it.

Whilst we are totally stacked out with work, we will always try to fit in emergency jobs where ever possible, so from the customer placing the initial enquiry to actually completing the job was about 5 hours!

Is funny how when you ask the customer what size is the tree, they always say its not very big. When we arrived, this thing was huge. A willow is quite a handful as it has so many branches, but luckily they cut pretty easily and the chipper handles them very well.

Nobody really appreciates just how much wood is in a tree but we had a good 2.5 tonnes of wood and 5 cubic metres of wood chips to deal with – but a happy customer as well.

Unfortunately, I forgot the camera so no piccies this time……note to self – put camera in truck!
