Lower Don Valley Tree Works - Sheffield City Council

As part of the Sheffield Lower Don Valley Flood Defence Project, we have carried out a phased, proactive programme of tree management; felling mature crack willow trees to prevent them from breaking off and falling into the river channel, comprising a flood risk. 

We used a combination of methods to dismantle, cut and extract the trees from the channel including the use of tractors, winches, cranes and climbing teams.
