Thames river bank Chiswick, Hounslow Council

We were asked by Hounslow Council to visit the site to clear the sloped concrete river bank leaving 20% of the foliage for cover. The project included pollarding (i.e. pruning, during which the upper branches of a tree are removed; the result is a dense head of foliage and branches) two large London planes to allow light to reach the Chiswick shore trust building.

In addition, we cleared an area to prepare for some foliage to be treated. The trees required a considerable amount of man power and experience as we needed to rig large limbs into the bank and over the rail. However, our Smart winch lowering device made easy work of this, helping the team to work safely and efficiently.
