I got my tree reduced has it been done well?

Recommended Posts

My mate Martin uses the F word...a lot at sights like that! sometimes he utters the C word when commenting on their prowess at tree reduction.

I know nothing but the reductions he comments on look like bog brushes to me!

Another 4 cuts and it’ll be finished by the look of it .......

What areas of the tree are you referring to? I may have someone else out to fix it.

@Margaret1963  the tree should have a crown shape similar to its original shape, with barely noticeable cuts, in leaf. It should also be carried out when the tree is at full vitality. Not at this time. Winter. K

To be specific do you mean, the top of the trunk should be cut down vertically to where the branches still remain?

It’s been butchered from a quality of work perspective. 4 cuts at the base will have it over and not hurt everyone’s eyes anymore.
It’s poor work but hey , it’s smaller than before if that was the primary objective

Oh I always assumed winter time was the best time but the arborist never said otherwise

No. All the  branches should have been cut back to a growth point that would sustain the remaining branch, but overall, give the tree a smaller shape, if that is what was required. It is a selective process requiring a skilled eye. K

Margaret read what @Mick Dempsey says, wait and see. Height has been reduced even though it's  not well executed work but the tree will recover and in summer it will still be hiding some of that concrete roof.

 

Keep that conifer hedge regularly trimmed too, else it will grow out into the garden and become too late to recover.

 

The tree has sprouted from a stump anyway which is why there are so many stems
