Midland Forestry Case Studies (western region)
Midland Forestry prides itself on delivering a quality service for its customers. Every project undertaken is approached with four core ingredients. Experience, professionalism, quality workmanship and consistency in delivery. Our service is second to none.
Bristol To Bath Cycle Route
Midland Forestry on behalf of Bristol City Council has been carrying out essential tree works which has led to a significant number of trees being removed from alongside the Bristol to Bath cycle route.
Although this has not been popular with the cycle path users, serious attacks and assaults have occurred due to previously unmanaged tree stock and vegetation providing cover. Removal of these trees will allow street lighting to provide a safer route for both people travelling to work and for recreation.
Over the previous years, Midland Forestry has provided extensive re-planting to provide canopy cover of more suitable and ornamental stock to replace the many poor self set species.
Clearing The Way For Concorde!
Wellingtonia Trees cleared and re-used to create new play area
In 2007 Midland Forestry were awarded the contract to remove several mature Wellingtonia trees at Ashton court in Bristol.
This was a sensitive site due to the removal of very visual trees. The removal was part of the acceptance of a substantial Lottery grant, which has benefited the restoration of Ashton court and provided replanting of more native trees to represent the original Repton landscape.
All waste in the removal of these Wellingtonias has been used within the City. A new play area at Oldbury court has been constructed and the main stems from the trees have been used and carved at the entrance to the park. (see picture).
Midland Forestry Ltd (South West) is involved in the preparations for the Concorde Museum Site at Filton, Bristol .
The museum is being built to celebrate the fantastic engineering and sheer wonder that was Concorde. The plans for the museum are just as intriguing as Concorde itself! The plans are to tow the Concorde at Filton aerodrome across the runway and into position at Cribbs Causeway, where the museum will be built around the aeroplane itself.
Midland Forestry will be clearing routes for easy access via public footpaths. The removal of trees, brambles and hawthorn has created wider rides to provide dedicated access routes. Midland Forestry has been working in close partnership with J T Bayliss (ecologist) to prevent disturbance of wildlife and associated habitats.
