  1. It is but unfortunately it’s in the way
  2. It’s just in the wrong place making it difficult to park on the drive, plus the roots are cracking the tarmac on the drive too. It’s a shame as it’s really nice 👍
  3. Yea that’s right, it’s difficult to park, if it was more to the left there’s no way I’d get rid of it as it’s a lovely tree.
  4. Not that I’m aware of. He said it’s because a Beech Tree of the only tree when you cut it down the roots shrivel. thanks for the response. It’s a lovely tree and shame to get rid!
  5. Hi there, I have a huge copper Beach at the end of the drive, about 15ft or so from the house, the picture really doesn’t show the true size, it’s huge! we’re looking to get it removed and have had 3 quotes to get some opinions as the first person who came round said “a beech tree is the tree where you cut it and the roots shrivel, it could affect the house foundations if you take it all down at once. I’d advise you take the top off, leave it a minimum 12 months then cut the rest down, if anybody comes round and says that it can be cut down in one go, tell them to get out of your garden they don’t know what they’re talking about.” Has anyone heard of this before? Thanks in advance.
