  1. Hi, I'm hoping someone can help - i'm a first time buyer and think we've found a house for our family - only trouble is there's a cherry tree in the back garden. The trunk is 1.1m thick and it stands about 5m tall and is 9.6 m from the back of the house (small-ish size garden) and there's a brick shed about 3m away from the tree. Is the tree likely to cause any issues? I'm trying to locate a local abhorist to confirm so that would be another potential request for advice - in the Bromley/SE London area. Thanks
  2. Hi I would like some advice for the best approach to remove a tree from my garden. We have recently moved into the house and during the sale we had a survey conducted. The survey recommended that we remove a silver birch tree from the garden and that we should do this gradually to reduce the chances of heave. Following this I spoke to a number of tree surgeons who all assured me that this practice is no longer used and that we should remove the tree in one go. The house is a Victorian terrace and was built around 1900 in Bristol BS3. I believe parts of Bristol have clay soil and are therefore susceptible to subsidence. The area is known to have previously been used for mining and I am therefore slightly worried that removing the tree may cause heave. The tree is a silver birch (I have attached some photos below). It is approximately the size of the two story house, with a trunk diameter of 90cm and is around 5m from the nearest property. I am considering the following options: 1) Consulting a structural surveyor for an opinion in the likelihood of heave 2) Removing the tree gradually 3) Removing the tree in one go I would be very grateful if anyone has any experience in this they could pass on. Many thanks in advance. Kind regards Alex
  3. Good evening all. Could anyone offer any advice as to whether the tree pictured here is 'too' close to the house? The picture isn't particuarly well scaled but the tree trunk is roughly in line with the door and the distance from door to trunk is just over 6 meters. The house is a new build, the tree has a TPO on it. The house was built taking into account the root protection area. The tree is a purple maple and is approx 10 meters tall. The council tree officer has advised that tree crown reduction would most likely be approved. We had an arborist look at it and they advised that they didn't expect it would cause any problems. The house is in Lancashire - so a wet climate and not particuarly clay soil. Any input greatfully recieved!
  4. A friend and colleague of mine has developed a tent which can be suspended from anchor points in trees it's called Tentsile and has applications in leisure, exploration, forestry, and humanitarian releif. He's trying to raise funds to bulk order units to sell at an affordable price. If any one's interested you can see his crowd funding site here. It's an exciting concept and from working with him on some pretty amazing treehouse projects he knows his stuff.
