Tree Surgery to a Mature Tree in Abu Dhabi

I recently supervised a major crown reduction on an over-mature Eucalyptus on an historic site in Abu Dhabi. 

I had surveyed the tree last year and made a recommendation to carry out a substantial crown reduction, due to the declining vigour of the tree and the close proximity to people and buildings.

We used a MEWP (mobile elevating work platform) to access the tree and do works to the lower areas of the crown.  The top branches were removed by use of the site crane, which could lift substantial sections of the tree and bring them safely to the ground.  I have some great video’s which I may post at a later time.
