  3. Have you any pictures of the tree and location
  4. If you are happy for your employes to work alone while your on holiday as above you let them price work

    I'm looking at a job. The tree in question is a scots pine around 70ft tall and standing 10ft from the customers house. It's multi stem and one stem is heading towards the house. The customer understandably wants it out but it has a TPO. It has the usual factors of dead wood, ivy etc, but in addition I've come across something at the branch union. There was an old wound approx 6 inch diameter where an old branch had come off and a lot material. It's only in this one area and I'm not sure if it's fungi or something else. I'm after some help on this one! Photos attached, sorry they're not the best quality.
