This large mature Spruce tree had to be felled due to decay in the stem and roots. Access was limited and everything had to be taken away along the footpath. The tree was climbed and dismantled in small sections. Thanks to Neil for the photos taken from the homes above.

Pleaching is the art of training trees to grow in a desired shape and goes back many hundreds of years. Pleaching typically sees hedges on stilts often on a framework with the branches tied together and sometimes naturally grafting. They require regular pruning to maintain their desired shape. The pictures here show a hornbean (Carpinus betulus) having some routine pruning by Faithful Tree Care. This species, and also beech, has the advantage that it will hold onto its coppery leaves until spring.
