saying good bye to a tree

Recommended Posts

To care is a good thing.

If we do not care we (or our children) will have no future to care about.

There is more to life than creating a tree stump. This unfortunately now seems to be the public perception of a Tree Surgeon, roll on Arboriculture and public education.

That quote in your signature is pretty good.

Just spent an afternoon removing some major ivy from a LA Oak. I've walked past this tree every day for 6 months and I decided enough is enough!

 

Only took a couple of hours with a silky. I previously cut the bases a couple of weeks ago.

 

my wife thinks i'm mad as it doesn't belong to me or even a paying customer. As far as I'm concerned its everybodys tree!

Talking to trees? Yep, guilty. Generally i ask the tree to be nice to me and not break at my anchor point. I apologies for any discomfort. A superstition born out of fear i think. I don't do it to all trees, just the old dodgy ones.
