Couple of reductions

Saturdays jobs involved a couple of nice reductions, first up was this Beech that had been topper about 5/6 years ago, so was a bit of a challenge to get the shape right and pick the right branches to leave to form the new crown.

After
Its hard to tell from the pictures but there is a large sycamore about 10 m behind the tree, so it looks a lot more dense than it actually is. Pretty happy with the outcome and I know when its in leaf it will look nice and natural

Next up was this smallish plum tree, only a very light reduction and slight thin, If you prune fruit trees too hard they have a habit of growing like crazy.

After
There was also this holly tree to fell, in order to make way for a new conservatory 


All in all a good days work
