What goes up must come down!

The festive period is always very busy for the Field & Lawn teams up and down the UK.  One of our favourite projects to manage in is the installation of the iconic Christmas Tree at the Mound in Edinburgh.

The tree, a 2.3 tonne Sitka Spruce, stood 60ft tall and was decorated with 3000 fairy lights to add some sparkle to the dark nights sky.  Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and our teams returned earlier in January to skilfully remove the display and tree.

The process involves every branch being carefully removed working from the base of the tree to the top before being cut into logs in reverse from the top to bottom.

You can find out more about the installation of the tree via The Edinburgh Reporter here.
