A journey through the life of an Arborist in words and pictures
Wednesday, 8 December 2010
This Sycamore (Acer psuedoplatanus) was to be reduced by 30%. So here is another gripe! I know work like this keeps me in a job, but was the spec really necessary? The tree over the past few years has already been thinned twice so in retrospect there was not much left to reduce! Nobody lives in the house in the pic and it has been unoccupied while builders apparently are doing something to it AND it was built there with the trees already existing. So why do we pander to peoples complaints about the trees? Poor trees i say!
Don't get me wrong i'm not a tree hugging hippy, and some trees are definately in the way sometimes when it comes to health and safety but i think this was unnecessary.
Anyway, took till dinner, was a nice sunny morning and I don't think it looked to bad in the end.
