  1. Thanks for all the input so far. The tree is within 10m of 3 houses, with 3m of electricity cables and within easy reach of where 3 or 4 cars are parked. Also my neighbours and I have kids that play near the tree, so I'm obviously quite concerned. Whilst I don't want to fell the tree it sounds like it may be the only sensible option. Time to speak with the tree officer as we are in a conservation area. Actually if the TO says to keep it and then it falls, how do I stand legally if it causes damage or injury? Surely the council would be liable, not me?
  2. Hi, I have a large 25m+ Lime Tree and I've been told it has an established case of Kretzschmaria Deusta by one tree surgeon. There was a tree report completed by an Arboricultural Consultant 5 years ago (before I purchased the house) and in this report it noted "fungus, young fruiting body, unidentifiable". I guess in the last 5 years the fungus has developed and can now be identified. Please can someone explain what the likely outcome is for this fantastic tree? I've read several different things online and I fear there may be no choice other than to fell it? To add some context, you can easily pull away some rotten wood at the base where the disease is and the tree is 10m from my house and about 8m from my neighbours house. I don't want to fell the tree, but if it's dangerous I guess there is no choice.....especially as I don't have unlimited funds. Thanks in advance.
