Hintlesham Hall Golf Club Timber Extraction

We have embarked on a large project at Hintlesham Hall golf club.

Felling and extracting large decaying trees that are invasive to the native setting of the Hintlesham valley. The weather has been extremely testing but the guys at Dedham Vale Tree Surgery have muscled through and persevered to get the job done.

The customer was extremely happy as when we first visited the site the customer couldn’t see a solution to getting the large timber off the island and up the hill. After a bit of head scratching I sketched out a plan and sent the proposal over to the customer. He said let’s give it a go and it’s been a great success. Locally I’ve never seen it done before so maybe this is a first for a east Anglian tree company. We pride ourselves at being at the forefront of the tree industry and constantly progressing and pushing the boundaries of what we thinks possible.

It’s feeling Festive!

Here at Dedham Vale Tree Surgery we are already starting to feel the Christmas spirit as we notice more and more of our lovely customers in Essex and Suffolk have their Christmas decorations up. If like me your Christmas shopping is not yet complete what about considering a Forestry England membership as a gift? Research shows spending time in nature, especially woodlands, improves our health and wellbeing. If you would like to know more about this please use the link below:

As usual Dedham Vale Tree Surgery will close for a couple of weeks over Christmas to give everyone a chance to have a good rest and come back revived ready for 2021. We wish all our customers a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Working with cranes

At Dedham Vale Tree Surgery we consider ourselves pretty lucky to be for the most part doing a job we love. Some days are always more fun than others, sometimes it isn’t so good because of tough weather conditions and sometimes it is amazing. This week we had one of the amazing days out in Weeley with a huge crane hired in for the job. Many thanks to the excellent @easterncranehire for the crane hire and well done to the team for carrying out the job so efficiently.
We have our own cherry picker which we often use but is also available to hire at Dedham Vale Cherry Picker hire, but some jobs just need the big guns!

Nesting Birds

At this time of year the birds are nesting in our hedgerows and in order to protect them and their young there are laws in place. Sadly there are some unscrupulous people in our industry who will ignore these laws and if you see this going on it should be reported. The RSPB recommends not cutting hedges and trees between March and August as this is the main breeding season for nesting birds.

Trees for dogs in Dedham

So here is our lovely dog Atlas having a nose around the canine parkour course at Dog Training for Essex & Suffolk in Ardleigh with logs for the course all supplied by Dedham Vale Tree Surgery.
This is a superb dog training school with loads of innovative classes as well as regular obedience. We have 3 rescue dogs and they all enjoy their time there. Dedham Vale Tree Surgery likes to support other local small businesses and we throroughly recommend Dog Training for Essex & Suffolk and their canine parkour course as well!

The Forestry Commission

The Foresty Commission is changing its name! After 100 years of being the Forestry Commission it will now be called Forestry England:

Forestry England
As England’s largest land manager, Forestry England manages and cares for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests with our 1,000 staff and the support of our 20,000 volunteers and 80,000 members.

 

Pest and diseases in the UK

Due to increased travel opportunities for many people and ease of travel around the world, the risk of spreading tree diseases and pests has never been greater.
If you see a new fungus growth on one of your trees or leaf problem or sudden insect infestation please do give us a call to see if we can help with identification of the problem.\
The Forestry Commission (government run) do compile a newsletter called ‘Tree Health News’ which often has good advice and things to look out for. You can sign up to have these emailed to you by following this link:
