2023 is coming to an end, and as we look ahead to a new year packed with new clients and ideas for exciting new projects and services, we thought there was no better time to celebrate all we’ve achieved this year.
In fact, as we pulled together this round-up of 2023, we found that every month of the year has introduced a new win for the team with both small and large achievements across the board. Here are some of our most notable moments from 2023…
A Year of Success
In January, we announced that we were, at last, formally recognised in the industry as being CHAS accredited!
February brought us to Colchester on a tree reduction project, cutting a large oak tree down to 2.5m to allow for more sunlight in the client’s garden.
In March, some of the team worked to remove a large and unruly Spruce, removing both the tree and the stump from a Billericay garden.
In April, we celebrated a year since we achieved our first ArbAC qualification – and raised a glass to the renewal of the qualification for another 12 months. This allows us to carry out professional tree surgery work under the approval and with the accreditation of, the Arboricultural Association.
A large project with a telecoms company brought much of the team to Cheltenham in May. The project involved cutting down a series of trees to accommodate the nearby telecoms tower service.
In June, we took on a week-long site clearance for Inland Homes, who required a large area of trees and vegetation to be cleared in preparation for infrastructure work to take place. This was successful and allowed the client to start the groundwork for their development on time.
July saw the team tackle a troublesome tree, that was leaning over the boundary line and blocking part of our customer’s decking. The dead Oak Tree was too damaged to climb, so we had a little help from Blake Tree Care and their specialist equipment, to ensure we could fell the tree safely.
In August, we were once again called out to help a telecoms company, clearing the debris from a fallen tree which had become damaged during a storm.
In September, we took on a crown reduction project. Located in Stock, the oak tree was well overdue a cut back to give it a much-needed freshen up, executed by the team perfectly.
October saw us working across an ecology site for one of our commercial clients. The cutting and clearing work enabled ecologists to have clear access to study the relationship between plants, animals/insects and the environment, across the site.
In November, we worked on a reduction project in the Chelmer Village, cutting a large oak tree back to 3m. Our client wanted this job completed to allow more light into the neighbouring properties and gardens, as well as mitigating and preventing any further damage to the surrounding roofs.
In December, we took a trip to Scotland, as part of a project to clear a space of 35 trees, ready for the installation of a new telecoms tower. The 1400-mile round trip required two full days of travel for a single day of work – and we even managed to squeeze in some sightseeing!
2023 has been quite a year for us! Now we’re ready for a well-earned break, and a refreshing start in 2024!
