Roadside Tree Safety, Clearance and Management
Did you Know? As a landowner you have a “duty of care” to take reasonable steps to makes sure trees on your property do not cause harm to others.
Rose Tree Care has a wealth of experience in dealing with roadside tree safety. With our own in-house Traffic management equipment and operators we can easily, safely and cost effectively solve your roadside tree problems.
We have been approved by Northamptonshire Highways to work to Book Road space, and design and install Traffic Management for roadside tree works.
We have NRWSA Streetworks qualified supervisors and operatives to work install and maintain traffic management systems such as lane closures and temporary traffic lights.
We also own our own Chapter 8 traffic management set up including Diesel powered 2 way traffic lights.
We can also carry out Roadside tree inspections and reports for clients.
We own and operate machinery capable of processing roadside trees quickly such as excavators with brash grapples and large chippers as well as HGV trucks for moving equipment and timber.
Our IPAF qualified staff can operate Cherry pickers of all sizes, quickly and safely dismantling trees or pruning trees and limbs liable to cause cause a hazard.
We also have fully qualified tree climbers and chainsaw operators, to carry out all sorts of tree and vegetation management.
Dirft 111 – Roadside Clearance for Development in Rugby/Daventry
As part of the Dirft III development works near Hillmorton Rugby the developer needed a area of Roadside trees cleared to allow for a new slip road from the A428 into there site.
A number of small local firms had been approached with the intention of clearing the trees using man power to manually fell trees drag the material across a ditch and up a bank and chip using traditional small tow behind hand fed wood chippers.
This would have caused weeks of disruption on the road as well as being hard work!
We allocated 3 days to fell and process the trees. To minimise reliance on potentially unreliable external traffic management contractors we installed and maintained two way traffic lights ourselves allowing us a one lane closure to work in.
The trees where felled using chainsaws and moved up the bank using a 8 tonne 360 excavator fitted with a selector grab. The trees could then be stacked and fed into a crane fed chipper with a 15inch diameter in-feed.
The works were completed safely and comfortably within the 3 days allocated with minimal disruption to the public.
Private Landowner, with Roadside trees, Northampton.
This landowner had a small holding with a number of trees running along side a busy country road. The owner had a noticed a number of trees which had large dead branches which were liable to fall into the road.
Using our own Traffic management set we were able to cost effectively remove the effected part of the trees in just a few hours.
