Yesterday we were in Barton with the pleasure of surveying a very impressive Wellingtonia! Trees at this stage in their life are always best to keep an eye on as unfortunately, at some point, they will start to decline. The biggest concern of this tree is its 'V' shaped union. If this tree was left to it's own devices it would have inevitably broke apart, leaving the more stable half standing. This half then survives for a few more years or even decades, but not much longer.
This week we were at the Village Hall in Offord Darcy to reduce a large Lime tree. The tree was reduced several years ago and the pruning points had not healed over well, creating weak points in the crown. The tree was reduced back to these points to lessen the loading. Traffic Management was used to make sure the traffic was kept flowing and keep everyone including ourselves safe!
