Baumbua: tree care 20 metres off the ground.
Sascha sees himself and his work as an interface between man and nature. As a result of this, he's often torn between two worlds. On the one hand, there are those who want a perfectly intact tree to be removed for no particular reason. And then on the other there are those who want to keep trees at all costs, despite them posing a threat for the environment. That's not an easy position to be in. So what is it that makes a good tree surgeon? "That you can't even tell a tree has been pruned." In their daily work, the Baumbua employees always try and enter into discussion with people they encounter and explain to them what they are doing and why. "It's my aim to sensitise people on the topic of trees. Especially in urban areas, because it's exactly there where it is particularly important to keep trees alive for as long as possible."
From landscape gardener to tree surgeon.
Perfect tree care with a vehicle fleet from Mercedes-Benz.
Baumbua is a tree surgeon company from Munich. The place of work: tree tops 20 metres off the ground. For tree maintenance, the company needs to be able to access any type of terrain in all seasons. To this end, "Baumbua" has put its trust in a fleet of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. Regardless of whether they're driving in tough off-road terrain or through the urban jungle: with the X-Class, the Sprinter and the Citan, "Baumbua" can respond perfectly to any challenge. Find out how the "Baumbua" vehicles are put to use and why the company is so impressed by them.
4 tips from Sascha for correct tree care:
1. The chosen tree: you should think about the type of tree you want to plant and whether you have a suitable place for it (thinking about the light conditions, earth and amount of space available).
2. The right place: before you plant a tree, you should calculate the space which it will need when it grows. Don't plant it too close to the house, the neighbour's property or the road.
3. Timely planning: it's better to plan in the pruning earlier rather than later, when more of the tree would otherwise need removing.
4. Get professional help: when it comes to pruning trees, don't just take the cheapest offer, look for a specialist company with plenty of experience – that will pay off in the long term. You'll get plenty more joy from a well-pruned tree. A "mutilated" tree will be more work than it's worth. If it's been too heavily worked on, you'll never get it back to its former glory.
"Trees can live without humans, but we can't live without trees."
The right vehicle for every type of terrain – thanks to the Citan, X-Class and Sprinter.
The all-wheel-drive system of the X-Class often helps them out of tricky situations.
The chippings will later be taken to a biomass processing plant which will convert them to new energy.
Equipped for any type of terrain.
