This large Chestnut tree sustained some damage in a recent storm resulting in the loss of a substantial limb. The resulting wound in the main stem showed some discolouration of the timber and signs of decay. The tree had been noticeably in decline during the previous few years growing seasons, with a general lack of vitality visible in the foliage. Due to this, the loss of a large limb, and the evidence of decay, the decision was made to remove the tree on the grounds of safety.
The tree was on a small green and was largely open-grown, and with the exception of a shrub bed on one side of the tree, the removal was pretty straightforward. The biggest issue for us was to be the removal of the arisings and the removal of the stump. We used a smaller pedestrian-operated stump grinder to remove this due to our large stump grinding machine was needed on a larger job.
This job was carried out within a few hours, with the job site left immaculate. The tree stump was completely removed and covered over, ready to be either turfed or sewn with grass seed.
