Vegetation Maintenance in Bwllfa

Removing Brambles And Thicket From Historic Area Of South Wales

Man Coed have offices on the border of North Wales and offices in Hengoed, South Wales. Despite this, our tree surgery work takes us well into the North of England and all across Wales!

For this job we were tasked with vegetation maintenance in Bwllfa, Rhondda Cynon Taf, in the South of Wales. You may know Bwllfa as the site of the old Bwlfa and Merthyr Dare Coal Collieries – now the Dare Valley Country Park. However, for the residential areas of Bwllfa the threat of thorny plants creeping up peoples’ porches is less picturesque and more of an inconvenience.

You can see the thickness of the blackberry bramble vine even near the top of the plant, and when allowed to grow this much the lower entanglements will be even bulkier.

If you’ve ever had to deal with overgrown brambles before then you know how hardy then can be. Blackberry brambles are fast growing, their thorns are sharp, and they even provide ample competition for garden shears if left to their own devices for long enough.

This is why Man Coed is here to help: our professional equipment means even the sharpest of thorns can’t hold us back! We have ride-on equipment capable of making quick work of difficult plants, even on steep banks like the ones shown below.

As you can see, the brambles have threaded together into a massive thicket. To clear this amount of strong blackberry vines manually with garden shears would have taken days; even with multiple people. However, Man Coed were able to take care of the job in one day, only having to return for an application of herbicide to keep these formidable plants behaving a little longer.

'Nicest and most helpful work group I've ever come across. When working in a public park, they went above and beyond to help people access the field and play area, and allow dog walkers through. They even cut up some felled tree trunks for me to use in my elderly parents' garden, and refused to take anything in return. (And everyone was using PPE, which is a rarity in itself!).'

'We contacted Mancoed after an incident on our site when a tree was blown over narrowly missing our main office, received and accepted a quote and the team began the work within a couple of weeks. Mancoed carried out the work in a professional, safe and efficient manner. Would recommend their services. Alumasc Exterior Building Products Ltd.'

This company went above and beyond to assist me with purchasing a property which had Japanese Knotweed in the garden. Without the support from the staff at Mancoed the house purchase would have fallen through. The customer service is second to none and I can’t recommend them enough! Huge thanks to the team who supported me, Ash x

Tree Surveys

A tree survey is performed by trained arborist/s with the intention of examining trees within a specific area. Tree surveys can be mandatory in specific areas of woodland and public places. They can also be privately requested; usually when a person or business wants to develop land.

Information included in a tree survey can include;

  • Tree height,
  • Tree diameter,
  • Species of the tree,
  • The tree’s age,
  • The tree’s health,
  • Life expectancy of the tree

As well as, including a management plan of suggested actions for each tree. These trees are then tagged and coded. So, if you’ve ever wondered what a tree surgeon is doing when they mark trees, it’s for data purposes.
