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
I've bin asked by a florist if I have or can get 2 silver birch stems. we rarely come across birch fells so never really have birch timber of a substantial size. can anyone provide these? I'll ask for exact sizes required and then post them up too. cheers Duncan
