We acted quickly as the tree was still bear so would be a lot easier to remove than it would with leaves on. The tree company we used were outstanding. Six chaps, a crane, a mulcher, a trunk for the trunk, a stump grinder and 3 hrs made very short work of this massive tree.
|The large canopy shaded both our house and the neighbours|
|Thankfully I worked hard on the weekend to remove most of the plants from the garden so the crane could fit|
|We had a tree protester|
|The climber had no fear|
|Canopy gone. Totem pole left|
|I came out at this point and realised how sad I would be with it missing|
|The base should a fair amount of damage|
But I guess that is the thing with gardens they change so I need to adapt as well. There is a lot of chip that needs removing and soil that needs improving. But I do now have a lot more sun so suddenly I have quite a big space for vegetables and possibly a space for fruit trees. Maybe I could try and compete with Beks 59 apple trees? It might not be so bad after all???
Well I guess I best get my gardening clothes on as there is a whole pile of work that needs doing before I can dream of planting.
