Poole Town Centre
The Dolphin Shopping Centre / Faulkner Square, Quay & Poole Museum
In 2007 we installed a fully decorated 20ft Norway Spruce tree at the Poole Museum. This successful installation coupled with the professionalism and dedication of our Christmas tree team; from ordering through to installation and collection, resulted in the opportunity to supply four trees to various Poole town centre locations in 2008. Providing both an internal fully decorated Christmas tree and three outdoor Christmas trees decorated with lights, the trees varied in size from 16ft through to a spectacular specimen of some 30ft. To ensure that only the very best specimens are selected for Poole we start sourcing and tagging our trees in August.
Before any installations could start our Large Tree Manager and our Health & Safety director met with the council’s Health & Safety personnel to fully discuss the installation and provided an in-depth site survey. Low voltage lights were chosen that offered no risk to the public but which still shone brightly.
Again in 2009 Frosts supplied the tree for the museum and two trees for the Quay. The Dolphin Shopping Centre decided to have a change of display and sourced a large artificial cone tree through another contractor for Faulkner Square. This display was rejected by the public and Frosts were called in to redeem the situation as a matter of urgency. By using our contacts and skills we managed to source and install the 35ft real outdoor Christmas tree within 3 days of the request. Despite the short notice, no shortcuts could be made as Health & Safety is of the utmost importance to both Frosts Christmas tree services and Poole Town Centre Management.
All large tree installations require a high level of skill, however this particular installation is very challenging as we are required to manoeuvre an articulated lorry with beaverboard and hiab into a pedestrian area, and adhere to the client’s strict time restraints, which meant starting on site at 04:00. The number of trees to be installed and the vicinity of the installation make this a long project with several teams working together to complete the task. It is always a day that is enjoyed by the Frosts Christmas tree staff
