  1. I had seen that some trees can recover from it, that's why I still held out some hope for it, but I'm guessing this one isn't going to recover then? It's reignited my anger though seeing that others are shocked by it, feel like I'll have to say something to the neighbours, just can't see it ending well! Thank you for all the comments, definately considering putting a passive aggressive sign on it and persuading it to fall onto the summer house! I would sacrifice my new fence for that!
  2. Thanks for the replies. I've used much worse language in many a rant! It's disgusting that someone would do that! I've been stopped from going to have it out with them. Doubt I have a leg to stand on in any legal way. They didn't even put towards new fence and have built a huge ugly summer house! Is there really no hope for the tree then? I didn't know if it could heal itself by bridging the gap? It still has some new shoots coming through. Why is it better to remove sooner rather than later? Thanks
  3. Hi, wondering if anyone could help please. We moved into a new home January 2019 and between viewing and getting the keys, an opportunistic neighbor had attacked our tree (cedras atlantica?). It had been cut all around trunk with a chainsaw, and poison pellets put in above this. Desperate to save it, I removed the pellets and filled the cut with moss and taped around it. More recently we have filled the gap with pieces of a branch we trimmed. It seems to be shedding a ton of needles and looking a really sad colour. I would love to save it but I'm no expert. Is there anything I can do? Is it beyond all hope? Will it die? Thanks in advance for any advice.
