Green Mile Trees, based in Nottinghamshire, has been lifting, twisting and loading trees since November last year.
All the trees that have been lifted from the nursery are now taking pride of place in someone’s landscape, garden, park or public open spaces. The U.K. weather this season has been peculiarly warm start but otherwise wet, windy and quite wearisome. That leaves the nursery with wet, heavy soil which makes for extra fun when lifting.
In amongst the wet and the wind, Green Mile has kept tabs on their total lift of over 7,000 trees. That’s an average of 80 per day but some days they have reached as many as 150. The 8-strong production team help lift, twist and load the trees, some over 5 metres in height, using specialist rootball and bare root tree lifting equipment.
Green Mile has been known to lift in the region of 150 trees from the ground on a busy day – and that’s no mean feat when you’re a team of 8 people and some of your trees are over 5 metres tall. Luckily their pretty sturdy machinery is on hand to assist with a Holmac used for lifting rootballed trees and a Damcon Sidelifter for bare-rooted varieties.
