A bit of what I do!

This is a Betula pendula (Silver Birch) that was due to be reduced a few weeks ago.  We got to the customers house who actually wanted the tree out as it was blocking light to her bedroom.  This is a constant battle i'm forever having to fight :( If trees were planted correctly in a location that was well thought out, this tree and many others would hardly ever have to be touched but preventative tree care is another story i will tell another day.

In the end I persuaded the customer to have a large reduction.  it ended up being 40-50% which is probably too much for this species but it was better than taking it out.  Here's the result.
