Horticulture Transport as Trees Are Moved With Ease by Sussex Transport!

Sussex Transport regularly moves unusual items for our clients.  Totem poles, giant bumble bees, pianos, film sets and helicopters to name but a few! (Have a read through our blog history to find out more!)

Last month we had a request to move several large trees from an address in Surrey to the New Forest in Hampshire.
Using one of our HIAB Lorries made this possible and relatively straight forward – ensuring the trees were moved safely and were undamaged in transit.

Trees are pretty amazing things….
• The amount of oxygen produced by an acre of trees per year equals the amount consumed by 18 people annually. One tree produces nearly 260 pounds of oxygen each year.
• One acre of trees removes up to 2.6 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
• Trees lower air temperature by evaporating water in their leaves.
• One of the tallest soft wood trees is the General Sherman, a giant redwood sequoia of California. General Sherman is about 275 ft or 84 m high with a girth of 25 ft or 8 m.
• The world’s tallest tree is a coast redwood in California, measuring more than 360 ft or 110m.
• The world’s oldest trees are 4,600 year old Bristlecone pines in the USA.
• The largest area of forest in the tropics remains the Amazon Basin, amounting to 81.5 million acres.
• In Arnold, California, a tree still stands with a legible inscription carved into it in 1849 by pioneers blazing paths to California during the Gold Rush. The inscription reads “49 Road.”

• As a hobby, farmer Axel Erlandson shaped trees – he pruned, bent, and grafted trees into fantastic shapes and called them “Circus Trees.” To make the “Basket Tree” Erlandson planted six sycamore trees in a circle and then grafted them together to form the diamond patterns. ( see photo )
