Rule 1 of garden ownership: Owner could have used a step ladder and handsaw and removed lowest lateral before having kennel erected.

Rule 2 of garden ownership: Have kennel erected then ask tree surgeon to come and remove lowest lateral, without damaging the fragile kennel roof.

Rule 3 of garden ownership: Have neighbours who move into new build house where your large mature Silver Birch overhangs their garden. Neighbours ask us about removing overhanging branches but don't seem to want to talk to the tree owner.

Rule 4 of garden ownership (a rare rule): Be a good regular customer with lots of tree (or did have,lol) who never quibbles with the quote and pays quickly.

 

Question to tree surgeons, difficult question: Which of the above rules is the best one? Answers on a postcard please.

 

Rule 1 of my dog: She lives in the house and has no kennel.

Working at the most impressive place I've ever worked. Removing a single poplar near the road. Nothing strenuous for a Monday.

Most fun I've had at work in the last four or five years, without a doubt. So happy to be out of bloody kitchens.

Fallen sycamore limb, around 400kg worth I guess? Hung up on a big beech at one end and a baby beech in the middle, with a climber at each end. Not allowed to mash any gravestones, obviously, not that you'd notice with the condition that some of them were in.

Off tomorrow, back in on Friday, and I've got a full-time job after that, which is pretty freaking cool.
