Diseased ash tree removal in Whirlow5th August 2014
The CHC Tree Care team were called out to a tree in Whirlow, after the owner was concerned over the safety of the tree in relation to the proximity of the house.
After a thorough examination of the tree, there were several indicators of honey fungus (Armillaria mellea) at the base. Given the proximity to buildings, the lean on the tree, and the uncertain extent of the decay, we decided to apply for removal. The local authority confirmed the diagnosis and granted us permission.
The ash tree removal went really well, working progressively to reduce the weight on the tree using dismantling techniques to enable the rigging of limbs that overhung other trees below.
All the timber was cut to length and left stacked on site for the client to process for their woodburning stove.
