High Reaching Solutions assist our arborist clients on a regular basis, especially when it comes to working on dangerous trees. Tree surgeons would much rather be safe and use one of our ‘ladies’ than risk injury or even death, and rightly so. 
What would constitute a DANGEROUS TREE? 
 
A dangerous tree is any tree (whether large or small) that is a hazard to people, property or facilities because of: 
 
• location or lean 
• physical damage 
• overhead hazards 
• ground deterioration 
• deterioration of limbs, stem or root system 
• or a combination of the above. 
 
And it’s not just the tree itself, it’s where it may fall if nothing is done that needs taking into consideration. 
Tracked spider cherry picker set in road helping tree surgeon to dismantle a dangerous tree.
 
 
One of High Reaching Solutions regular clients, N Dean Tree and Garden Services of Malton, North Yorkshire, had the task of dismantling a very dangerous tree which was unsafe to climb and so requested the services of ‘Selina’, our 22m tracked spiderlift to help them do it safely. The tree was rotten in the centre and was in danger of falling and although situated in a garden the tree was awkward to get to and no other form of cherrypicker could get close enough to do the job. Nick has used ‘Selina’ on many occasions and found her controls precise and easy to use, along with her adjustable track settings to get through narrow gates and her adjustable leg settings enabling setting up in tight and awkward areas very beneficial. Being only three tonnes in total weight which is spread over the area of the tracks whilst travelling and then over the footprint when her legs are down gives a very low ‘point-loading’ and therefore leaves very little evidence that she was even there, which is a bonus for all concerned.
