The who can get most outraged at bad treework thread.

Recommended Posts

What species? I’m guessing ash.
 
Maidens, never been trimmed, they’ll be fine, if you have to reduce to a certain spec ie. Height/width then I don't see that as too bad.
 
Ash have little inner growth points so sometimes you have to go for shape and wait for spring!
 
(one closest to camera better than the middle one though!)


I know sometimes when working to a spec there are limited options, but these people only have one spec...

Uh hang on a minute, I recognise those trees as they are where I live. Top one is in a garden, a mature ash with a TPO also within conservation area, it's a had some big cracks in limbs overhanging the road so I think it was reduced like that to make it safe. I am pretty sure I know the firm.

Second pic is a council tree just on the conservation area boundary, Hunts District Council whacked it a couple of years ago. It was overhanging the house, I know the people and they complained but everyone was a bit shocked after the council left. That one is just properly outrageous, I can't think it won't decay.

Where are you from then Boo Who?

So you know for a fact the same company did all those trees that you photographed?

No I don’t - the first ones for sure because all four trees down the road all done at the same time, the other two were done separately.
It is just such a shame that someone has there tree butchered for whatever reason, and then a neighbour thinks that they must do something to their tree too, so points and says “can you make my tree smaller, ...like that one!” As if it’s now a good looking tree and they would feel good to have one too!

It seems France does not have the franchise on abusing trees.

 

Here are some Breton examples.

The giant shredded oak is a puzzle given the attractive property.

 

The twin oaks where pruned by a lazy ex-pat tree guy who has since hung up his spurs thankfully.

 According to the client, both trees died within 2 years.

A common one I used to see in Brittany,
Was like the first photo but they would leave a tiny twig at the top.
So very French.

A mate near Chichester posted this on FB tonight.

 He has been following my outraged posts on tree vandalism and has become indignant himself at the sight of shoite tree work.
