Pittwater Barge Tree Removal Project

Botham Beach Tree Removal by Barge



Following a major destructive thunderstorm affecting Bayview and Church Point Mid November 2009, Plateau Tree Service were contacted by Pittwater Council to assist in the removal of trees left in a highly hazardous state by the storm.  Plateau Tree Service provided a tree removal crew on a full time basis for well over a week just to deal with the sheer volume of material left on roadsides and all of the hazardous trees adjacent to road carriageways in the affected areas.


Pittwater Council requested further assistance to remove storm damaged and hazardous trees at Botham Beach Reserve on McCarrs Creek Road at Church Point.  Several very large trees had become unstable and were severely damaged by the storm, these trees needed to be removed to ensure the safety of the public.  Unfortunately the site was all but inaccessible from the road above the site.


In order to overcome the access issues and to ensure that all of the material could be removed from site at the time of the works Travis Hazleton (Plateau Tree Service Pittwater Council Contracts Manager) decided to utilise a large barge to act as a works platform for one of our trucks and chippers to complete the works.  Miss Piggy barges were selected as our barge contractors and on the day of the works our truck rolled onto the barge at 7am.  After a short barge trip around the point the works crew working on the beach linked up with the barge crew and operations commenced running smoothly and with much assistance from the 8ton HIAB Crane arm on the barge.  With the expertise of Plateau Tree’s experienced  arborists and tree removal crew, this logistically challenging project was completed on time and as per our quotation. The team at Pittwater Council was extremely pleased with the results.
