Our next door neighbour called round yesterday with a man from one of the local tree surgeon companies. He has been discussing with P his plans to remove two huge trees that are on his boundary but also encroach on our property.
As you may be able to see from these photos, the trees are pretty big brutes. They are uncomfortably close to the house, and create quite a mess dropping needles, catkins and leaves all over the place.
Our neighbour now has a permit to remove them so is just getting a few quotes.
Methinks it will not come cheap.
Our nearest neighbour was going to have 4 trees along his hedgerow taken out (they would be shading the solar panels he is having put up). He offered to take two unwanted Sycamores down in our boundary. Free. We said yes with alactrity. Then the team he had got Covid and he had to get someone else out at the last moment who charged the earth. The other trees are now in abeyance but hey, we have a FAB view now! You will have a lot more light in your garden once those big brutes are gone.ReplyDelete
Yes, more light and less mess. What's not to like!Delete
What a difference removing them will make!ReplyDelete
I can't wait. That corner is so dark and the branches almost touch the house when it is windy.Delete
Jt is always sad to take down a tree but those two do look uncomfortably close and it is good to agree with one's neighbour over things like this.ReplyDelete
We have plenty more mature trees in the garden so hopefullly these two will not be missed.Delete
I suspect that my first comment went to "Spam" even though I didn't say a word about spiced pork luncheon meat.ReplyDelete
Nope. Nothing in the Spam list. Darned Blogger seems to be losing comments left, right and centre.Delete
F loves the tree in the second photo. It's a shame the people plant small trees so close to their homes and don't imagine how big they will become. You will enjoy the better light though. Our UK house has a protected tree that blocks light to the front of the house and makes those rooms feel very miserable.ReplyDelete
That second one is a sycamore. It is beautiful but far too big now to be safe so close to the house.Delete
