That's interesting to read. It poses no threat to the property and if it's useful as a habitat I'd be happy to leave it. The second tree in the garden appears to produce a lot of fruit so I don't need it for that purpose. I'll start learning about pruning. All of this is new to me so everyone's advice here is a big help.
Thanks for your reply. I thought that might be the case. It doesn't look to have prodcued any fruit this year as there's no signs of any fruit on the tree or any decomposing around it. Bit saddened that it won't survive but I'll look to plant something else, maybe a pear tree.
Hello all, I've just moved into a new house that has a garden with two apple trees. One of them looks to have woodworm and has a hollow section (see attached pictures) within a large vertical split. I have no experience or knowledge regarding trees (always lived in flats, houses with yards) and don't know how to proceed. Ideally, I'd like to know how the health of the tree can be restored or maintained, or if it's structural weakness will only get worse. Any advice or reading that people can point me towards would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. Sam
