Lightning Strike

By richard

A 120ft Redwood in Haywards Heath had been stuck by lightning during a storm causing a spilt in the main stem which day light could be seen.

Chaffin’s tree care professionals had to undertake sectional dismantle of the top 30ft down to sound wood this had to be done using a Mobile Elevated Work Platform…(MEWP) because the tree was very unsafe to climb.

To make matter more complicated there was a house directly under the tree and with the wind gusting this made the job very difficult.
