Removal of decaying Ash

From tree to table… 😊

Removing decaying trees from the landscape is an important part of our role as custodians of the countryside. We love trees, but ones that are decaying can be quite dangerous, so it is important to safely remove them, taking additional care to leave the surrounding area untouched.

Here, at The Joshua Tree, we bolster our dead tree removal service by recycling as much of the waste materials as possible. It’s a major reason why people use our friendly team, and we were even presented with a Gold Green Apple Award at the House of Commons in recognition of our efforts!

For this once magnificent but now decaying ash, we made sure that none of its beautiful wood went to waste. The tiny branches and bark were chipped and used for pathways; small-medium size branches were split and seasoned for firewood, and the larger sections were planked by Joe from The Rustic Tree Company in preparation for tables and other furniture items. He used a huge 76” bar with a Granberg Alaskan Mill to make the cuts.

We also managed to rig the entire setup without causing any damage to the surrounding areas – not as simple as it sounds!
