******************** Watch our Video!! ********************

A ditchline lined with overgrown and entangled Willow trees was Pollarded using the excavator mounted tree shear. This made short and safe work of an otherwise awkward to handle situation when attempting it with a chainsaw. The trees can be cut at height and rapidly sorted into cord wood or brash to be burned.
A further advantage of this system is that the machinery is carried on a tracked excavator meaning that work can be done during wet periods without creating the mess that the alternative wheeled telehandler might create in firstly being used as an access platform and secondly clearing up afterwoods.

This job was completed in one day – including all brash being burned.
