Our Beautiful Chestnut Tree
The Chestnut tree planted in the 1960's
This was our neighbour's view
It started to show signs of distress
An attack of the Leaf Miner moth.
All too common signs of Bleeding canker.
The tree was dying.
The tree was now dangerous and needed to come down.
28 July 2011. The first branches.
Clearing the site as you go.
Instant disposal to wood chips.
A high level of skill is demonstrated.
Great care is taken at all stages.
Skilled saw sharpening and maintenance.
Last few seconds.
Finally down after 50+ years
