  • Two gentlemen appeared the other day and made a cosmetic change to the lower branches. However the rest of the requirment has still to be addressed. The reduction in height and the removal of a dead major branch hanging from the main trunk. The telephone lines are still in the canopy of the tree. The men that did the trim tell me that they were not allowed not cut anything thicker than their thumb. This tree still needs proper pollarding treatment.
