Been a busy few months, so the blog has been a bit neglected. I've been working in London since April, which is definitely a change of scenery from leafy Shropshire/Herefordshire. But trees are trees wherever you go. just takes longer to get anywhere and there's generally more things to avoid!
Like these 2 giant London Plane trees I crown reduced a while back (for Complete Tree Care)
The one was significantly bigger than the other, with both having multiple targets to avoid underneath, but managed to get both done on time and in budget
Still managing to get some jobs done back in Shropshire though.
This oak was one that I reduced about 6 - 7 years ago and has since come back really vigorously. unfortunately it could have done with being reduced about 2 years ago as most of the internal growth points I'd have liked to reduce it too had died off from lack of light. So in order to maintain enough foliage we had to leave quite a lot of the wispy growth you see. the plan is to now let it come back and reduce it by another 30% or so in 2/3 years time, once there is some substantial internal growth to prune it too.
It may look bare at the moment, but this was about 6 weeks ago and I was working next door today and its already put on alot of growth and is looking much greener.
