Tree stump bench carving

I was recently asked by some clients to convert their large tree stump into a bench seat.  Having never tried my hand at chainsaw carving, I said I've give it my best shot!  The brief was relatively straightforward, but the work was made more demanding by the sheer size of the tree stump and the number [...]

How to prune dead branches from a holly

Don't try this at home, but we are going to show you how to prune dead branches from a holly, from our attached time-lapse video clip and photos.  Pruning in trees is obviously more difficult than from the ground, and you need to be a trained, qualified tree surgeon to safely work at height using a [...]

Tree waste recycling

There are few industries that can claim to be as environmentally sound as the arboricultural industry. We provide a valuable public service by reducing risks to the public and property by managing dead or damaged trees, and can find an end use for all of our waste products. Granted, we use fossil fuels to power [...]

Splitting and stacking firewood

We will be splitting and stacking firewood throughout the year in an attempt to satisfy demand when the nights draw in this coming Autumn. These logs will be ready for burning next Autumn/Winter, although if you have space to season your own [...]

The work involves removing extensive overgrown areas of bramble and gorse to give the grazing animals a bit of a 'head start', and encourage recolonisation by the host of diverse [...]

Time lapse beech tree

Nice to be working under a blue sky, even though it was pretty windy up in the canopy for our intrepid climbing arborist, Bruce. I was hoping to film the whole job, but my camera phone batteries only lasted until mid morning! Just as well, because shortly after this point it turned decidedly grey and [...]

One of our specialities at Coastal Tree Care is scrub management; often for corporate clients or conservation bodies, but also for private clients in rural and suburban settings. Our team are experienced in tackling a variety of habitat types, and are trained to use a broad range of power and hand tools - whatever is [...]

Dorset Wildlife Trust

We have recently increased our manpower commitment to the Portland Living Landscapes Project, managed by the Dorset Wildlife Trust. As the project nears completion at the end of 2014, our team are removing and burning up to half a tonne of dead Cotoneaster integrifolius plants each day! At present, we are working in Tout Quarry [...]
