  1. Thanks so much for all this advice! I truly appreciate it!! The client is about to sell and the surveyor wants the tree to be pruned before the handover.
  2. This is a photo of the tree.
  3. At this time of year, how hard can one pollard a Poplar tree? It's s a large tree and it has been pollarded many times before, but it hasn't been touched in at least 5 years. How much of the foliage do I have to keep in order not to kill it? Many thanks in advance!
  4. Thanks again to all of you for the help, ...it's very appreciated!!
  5. Thanks again! The fuel is fresh, ...less than a week old. Unfortunately the chainsaw is not under warranty anymore. I bought it as a backup saw and only used it 5 or 6 times during the last 4 years. Initially it was running well, ...until I was going through the base of the trunk. Maybe it just got too hot?
  6. Thanks a lot, that really helps! Also thought that I probably should try a new air filter in case it doesn't get enough air?
  7. What could be the problem with this relatively new chainsaw? What should be the first thing that I should try? Or should I just bring it to my local dealer instead? Many thanks in advance for any advice!!
  8. Yes, West Sussex is much too far. The tree is in Streatham and after I'm done I will pass through Brixton, Central London up to Northwest London. A 20 min detour is ok, but not more than that. Thanks for asking though.
  9. PS: Is there anything I have to look out for when climbing it? Is it unusually brittle (like Willows) or does it behave like most Maples? Just want to make sure as I don't know this tree.
  10. What kind of tree is this? These photos were taken in April in London. Many thanks in advance! PS: if anybody wants these logs for free then just let me know. I can even deliver if it's not too far out of the way.
