A team of  climbing woodland experts has been working in the grounds of the Kymin  to dispatch nine trees which have been identified as “dead or dying ” and to maintain other parts of the woodland.

A locally-based company – Cwmni Coed, Professional Tree Surgery –  took advantage of the clear weather to carry out a difficult and complicated job.

It involved tree surgeons shooting ropes by catapult into the tree canopies and then using ropes and clamp irons to “self-climb” their way up to the branches suspended 30 feet above ground level.

The mission was to remove dangerous and overloaded boughs from several trees which Penarth Council’s professional arborist had identified as being in need of  maintenance.

A local by-stander said that the team of two worked superbly over a number of hours to cut down, and then remove the large amount of timber from the trunks and branches, and were “most professional” in completing their work for the council.

Penarth Town Council engages the service of an expert arborist to advise on the health of the trees in the town for which is is responsible. (Highway trees and park trees in Penarth are maintained by the Vale of Glamorgan Council)
