We were recently called to inspect this tree in Horsted Keynes. The owner was concerned about it.
Due to the extreme amounts of rainfall we have been experiencing, rain puddles have collected in several of the unions of its branches. This water had seeped into the inner trunk and over time, had caused the wood to decay and weaken the tree. As this is the storm season, the safest option was to fell the tree.
As the tree was in a garden, it was carefully cut down into sections to minimise the risk of damage. The tree was felled to ground level and the site was cleared.
