Couple of little trees

Nice simple job today, first up was repollarding this willow that has been steadily growing closer and closer to the power lines.

Forgot to get an after picture on this one today
This tree was probably pollarded about 10 - 15 years ago, so could maybe of done with being done a few years ago as it is starting to become slightly overstood. Once a tree like this has been pollarded it then needs to be done on a semi regular basis, as often the regrowth has a weaker attachment to the tree and is therefore more likely to break out and potentially cause damage to property and the tree itself.

Then we had this Cherry to reduce slightly as it was again starting to grow out towards the house and power lines

Only a slight reduction as it wasn't a huge hazard, but often its best to tackle these things before they get to big
