  1. Can't be far off that but you're welcome to come over with a ladder and tape measure. Finger in the air to my untrained eye it looks around double the height of the house, which I know for a fact is 9m from ground level to the ridge line.
  2. I must confess I'm rather ill-informed about tree species, not sure who told me it was a Sycamore, but I think it was a tree surgeon It was just in that one area where most of the major branches off the trunk meet. It's gone now. It's a big tree, must be around 70 foot, would you be able to provide a rough estimate on the cost of removing it? I'm in North West Kent so basically London prices.
  3. Hello, We have a large Sycamore which based of the age of the house and historic photos I would guess must be around 80 years old. Last summer the leaves on approximately two thirds of the tree failed died back and fell off around July time after the prolonged dry period. Then in the autumn fungus appeared on the central part of the trunk. The fungus eventually went a few months ago after the prolonged wet spell. This year no leaves have appeared in the same area of the tree that lost it's leaves. The other third of the tree appears normal. Images of the fungus and how the tree looks currently are attached. Is the tree dying, can anything be done to save it or will the remaining third also die? Thank you.
