Kretzch Beech dismantle

cheers folks


iana - the tree took a day and a half to bring down, the first day was a chilled out half day - just setting up a decent central anchor point for the climbing line, checking the top crown for bigger dead branches and loose stubs/hangers etc then knocking out some bigger lower branches which aren't seen in the vid. 2nd day was the main work.


Rich - I just like the familiarity of DdRT on a job like that, could've easily done it with a SRT top tie which I like but just opted for old faithful, IMO there's not a huge advantage using SRT (top tie) on a tree like that, have noticed it can feel less cluttered if there's rigging involved though and can help with long branch walks re-directs etc. There was no major long branch walks on this tree.


On the 560xp, the last few cuts were done by a 70cc Jonsered with a 30" bar and a Stihl 660 with a 36" bar but the 560xp with the 20" .325 full chisel did the bulk of the main crown branchwork.


All the timber stayed on site, logged up into manageable sizes. We moved some of it with a 10x6 tipping trailer to keep things clear. This was the final height.

Impressive work Tim, well edited down to a good watchable presentation of the job.


Big monolith !

will stand as a good testament to the tree it once was within the local tree scape.

Is it outside the falling distance of the road?

Will you be instructed to keep an eye on it over he coming years.
