Despite our best efforts to retain trees where possible, the condition and location of this very large sweet Chestnut meant that removal was the only option. Thankfully there was lots of space to work with and good access, which allowed us to dismantle and remove this tree in two (very hard) days! We were told that this is only the ninth tree to be granted permission for removal in this particular ward of Wimbledon, which should indicate the terrible state that the tree was in.
About Tree Felling and Removal
We always encourage our tree surgery clients in London to retain trees wherever possible, but sometimes they have to be removed because either they are unsuitable for their space, or they pose a threat to surrounding buildings or for a variety of different reasons. Due to the lack of open space, tree felling in London can be more challenging and it is not often possible to fell a tree in one piece.
