Removing a Tree


Postby lauren1999 » Fri Jul 18, 2008 2:23 pm

Hi

I have a rather large tree in the centre of my garden that is literally sapping up all of the light and nutience and making it really hard for all of my lovely flowers and plants to survive and grow. What I really need to do is remove the tree and open my garden up.
I am very unsure on how to do this and even if I am allowed, but as it is my tree I wouldn't think this would be an issue.
Can someone please advise me, firstly, on whether I am allowed to do this and secondly does anyone know of a decent specialist in the south west that could do this for me.

Thanks in advance

hi there.

I have just seen your post on removing trees and probably by now you might have already removed it! But I have just removed some trees from my property and you have to check with the council that they don't have a TPO on it (tree preservation order) and then I think any reputable gardening company would be able to remove it for you.
good luck

Why not try to cut what you can using a chainsaw .

I don't know how big this tree is but you could give cutting it back yourself a go. If you can get it down to the stump drill some holes in it and pour in some accelerator to help kill it off quicker. Then dig up what's left. I agree about checking whether it is protected or not though.
