This tree had to come down as the customers insurance company deemed it to unsafe to stay. When we went to quote we realised why they had taken this decision with over half the trunk completely rotten and being able to put your whole leg about 2 foot down into the base of the tree. While climbing it, you could feel that the tree moved differently to a healthy tree and certainly didn’t feel safe. It was slowly dismantled and logged up to be used as firewood.

The final sections of the trunk showed extensive rot and it was a genuine suprise that this tree was still standing. A very good call by the insurance company as this was in falling distance of several expensive properties.
