Tree Felling Traffic Management Specialists

Essential Tree Trimming at a Key Location

Our client, engaged in critical tree trimming works, aimed to prune branches without removing entire trees—a practice vital for maintaining tree health and ensuring public safety. The project was crucial, situated at the entrance of a busy refuse depot, an area where precision and timing are paramount. The task at hand was not just about maintaining the natural aesthetics but ensuring better network coverage and safety for the community.

Tight Deadlines and Unexpected Hurdles

The operation’s success hinged on several critical factors: securing council approval for the traffic management (TM) plan, navigating the location’s specific requirements, and executing the project within a tight deadline. However, an unforeseen challenge arose—an electric board’s contractors arrived on-site with an emergency permit, potentially derailing our planned works.

Solution and Strategy

Understanding the gravity of the situation, Matt Hardy, alongside with the coordinator from our client, sprang into action. With no time to spare, our TM plan was promptly sent for council approval, with any required amendments swiftly addressed. Meanwhile, effective communication with the refuse depot ensured we could adjust working times as necessary.

Faced with the unexpected onsite issue, Hardy’s proactive approach made all the difference. By directly liaising with the council and the contractors’ supervisor, he secured an agreement to delay the emergency work, allowing our tree trimming project to proceed. This decisive action under pressure ensured our works were completed within the narrow window available, a testament to our team’s agility and resourcefulness.

Success Against the Odds

Thanks to the determination and expertise of our team, the project was not only feasible but executed to perfection—completed just in time, with the client expressing profound gratitude for our ability to find a work-around under tight constraints. “Thank you so so much for sorting this out this morning, I really appreciate you finding a workaround for us!” were the client’s words, underscoring the impact of our intervention.

This project, from planning approval to execution, was accomplished in a matter of hours, highlighting our rapid turnaround capability and commitment to delivering on our promises, against all odds.
