Case Study: Maintaining Holly Trees for Furley Page Solicitors in Central Canterbury

Nestled in the heart of central Canterbury lies a pedestrianised area adorned with two majestic Ilex aquifolium, more commonly known as holly trees, framing the main entrance to Furley Page Solicitors. About Trees Ltd., represented by our dedicated team, has been entrusted with the annual maintenance of these remarkable trees, ensuring they maintain their formal shape and enhance the aesthetic appeal of the surroundings.

Client Overview:
Furley Page Solicitors, a prestigious law firm located in Canterbury, values the pristine appearance of its premises. With a commitment to excellence in both their legal services and the ambiance of their surroundings, they sought a reliable partner to maintain the holly trees that adorn their main entrance.

1. Pedestrianised Area: Working in a pedestrianised zone posed logistical challenges, necessitating careful planning and execution to minimise disruption to the public.
2. Early Morning Work: To accommodate the pedestrianised area’s schedule, our team had to carry out the maintenance work very early in the morning, ensuring minimal disturbance to the solicitors’ firm and surrounding businesses.
3. Annual Maintenance: The holly trees required meticulous care each year to retain their formal shape and health, presenting a recurring task that demanded expertise and attention to detail.

1. Strategic Planning. Prior to the maintenance date, our team conducted thorough site assessments and devised a detailed plan to ensure efficient execution of the trimming and shaping process. This involved coordinating with Furley Page Solicitors to schedule the work during the early morning hours to minimise disruption.
2. Expert Tree Care: Our arborists utilised their expertise in tree care to meticulously trim the holly trees, adhering to the client’s specifications of regaining their formal shape. Careful attention was paid to each cut to avoid over-pruning and maintain the trees’ overall health.
3. Pedestrian Safety Measures: To ensure the safety of pedestrians during the early morning work, our team implemented appropriate signage and barriers, cordoning off the work area and directing foot traffic to alternative routes.

1. Restored Formal Shape: The holly trees framing Furley Page Solicitors’ main entrance were successfully trimmed and shaped to regain their formal appearance, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of the surroundings.
