Tree Safety Works Totnes

The Client

King Edward VI Community College is a secondary school based in Totnes, they have a duty of care to carry out a six monthly safety survey on all the trees within the site to maintain a safe environment for all attendees of the school.

The problem

We worked with the site team ensuring we scheduled tree safety works in to be done when pupils were free from the area.

What we did

  • Tree remedial safety works
  • Chipped and spread within copse
  • Vegetation clearance
  • 24 hour call out service

We care, we tidy, we collect

The majority of tree works around KEVICC’ site are not accessible with a vehicle, this is where our tracked chipper comes in to its own, allowing us to get right to the trees were working on or removing, all brushwood where possible is chipped back into hedgerows, or spread evenly within the copse.

Where possible the logs are cut to a specific length and stacked behind the tree line creating good habitat for wildlife, whilst keeping the cost down for our client making it less labour intensive not having to cart out large amounts of wood.

Working safely around endangered trees

Our teams carried out the tree works safely and effeciently using a tracked cherry picker making the works safer and more effecient.

Part of the safety works involved was next to the main road allowing us to organise temporary traffic lights to ensure we always had a safe working area available and were able to control the traffic when neccessary by liasing with the operative on site assisting us.

The solution

We had to liaise with South Hams District Council by filling out a Tree Works Application and gain consent before carrying out any works.

“Kneebone trees do brilliant work for KEVICC. They are very good at working with the needs of the college and always do a professional job. I would recommend them to anyone without any question. From the Kevicc site team to a really great bunch of guys.” Dave Willis, KEVICC Site Team.
