Cedar Tree


Hi ,


I was just looking for some advice about a tree in the garden of a house I have just purchased. 

I think its a Cedar tree but I have attached some pictures.


Firstly I would really like to cut it down but when we had the survey done on the property they advised if it was cut down to leave the stump for a few years to stop land heave?

I have no clue on the age of the tree from what I have read if the tree is before the property then this could be an issue?

The house was built in the 70's and the tree is 1.3m in circumference as tall as the ridge on a two story house and 8.2m away from the house. The soil is also clay

Could anyone advise if they think it maybe problematic removing the tree


Thanks in advance

Where are you? A location may well get you some local recommendations.


quoting from pictures is a mugs game, almost everyone any good will want to come and have a look before giving a quote.

Yeah I get that I wasn't expecting anything 100% accurate. Im in Wiltshire
