A regular update on the life and times of John Hanby’s Newstead Bonsai Centre……..
Topical Times – Big tree cut down in size
As we continued to clear and tidy the garden following our nursery move we uncovered the base of a large weeping willow tree. A large side branch had been cut off at some stage and although the wound had calloused over, rot had entered the centre of the tree.
The resulting weakness had caused a severe crack to appear made even more dangerous by the fact that most of the tree extended over an access lane to the side.
Strange as it may sound I don’t like felling trees but in this case we had no other option.
So I contacted Wayne Salter Tree Services and what a fantastic professional job they did. I would recommend them to anyone with a tree problem.
Large branches overhanging the nursery were roped and removed without any threat to the property below. In about an hour this huge tree was cut down to size, branches were removed and apart from the stump everything else just disappeared……and now we wait for it to sprout again but smaller and under control…..
…………..It’s a bit like bonsai only bigger!!!
