Leat regeneration

Leat regeneration


One of our clients owns a piece of land with a leat running down through it. The leat powered a waterwheel. Over the years the land had become increasingly overgrown from previous owners neglecting the land. Woodgates trees were employed to cut through all the years of overgrowth to make the land accessible again.


In order to gain access to the land we had to cross the leat just before where it rejoined the river. In order to do this we had to winch ourselves through the thick mud and silt with the wood chipper in tow. Further on down the piece of land we had to build a bridge in order to cross a ditch. Again we had to take the large wood chipper with us over the bridge.

Our client was very happy with the efficient manner in which we overcame the obstacles with.

Happy Customers

Firstly, may I say a Big “Thank You” to you and your team for a job well done. Not only for the main job of doing the trees, but for clearing up the debris afterwards. I went down to start the cleanup process myself, and was literally ‘Stunned’ at what I saw. You would not have know I had ever had any tree works completed in the garden! Not only that, but you had also cleared the steps for me down to the beach, so again, thanks!

It’s unusual for me to supply recommendation for service providers but I was so impressed by the way you and Simon dealt with the large and unruly ash tree in the front garden here that I’m determined to make an exception in your case.

Not only did you provide an accurate estimate, which you kept to, and turn up at the time and day you said you would, but you carried out the work efficiently and cheerfully with great skill and seemingly boundless stamina. I am more than happy to recommend Woodgate’s Trees services. However, I have to warn prospective customers that they will need a good supply of coffee and an efficient kettle!

Phillip and Simon turned up when they said they would and they did what they said they would do. Very pleased.
