Removal of a huge storm-damaged beech tree in Brabyns Park, Marple, for the Iron Bridge Restoration Project. The tree was removed using the sectional felling process, a tree surgery technique used when felling in one cannot be done due to space restrictions and safety considerations.
Dave Myers of Myers Tree Care was one of the very first people to offer us real practical help with his tree surgeon skills when our campaign to restore the historic Iron Bridge in Brabyns Park first hit the newspapers, way back in May 2002.
Due to storm damage to a huge beech tree it turned out to be a much bigger job than Dave could possibly have anticipated but he didn’t flinch! As the project neared completion in August 2007 Dave honoured his pledge, giving his services completely free of charge, just as he said he would five years earlier.
I would like to say a very BIG thank you to Dave for the support he gave to the Iron Bridge Project.
