My Oak Tree

Here are some before and after shots. The beautiful Oak Tree in the early morning sunshine before it had the first of its branches removed followed by some photographs taken this evening. The weather has changed to suit the occasion. I dread to think what what sight I will come home to after day two of the branch trimming operation…

  1. My neighbour hates my tall tree and wants me to cut it down, which I won’t, while you love your neighbour’s tall tree but they start to hack it to bits… Such is life, unfortunately.

      I am not sure the neighbour wanted it cut down he was acting on advice after the recent fallen branch. He was quite surprised to see that the tree which whose trunk is in his garden and several feet from our garden had more growth in our garden than his. He commented on the fact that we could touch the branches…

    You get a nice view of your neighbour’s roof now ! And on a good day you can look through their windows. Oh wonder. Oh joy. And they can see you too. That is bound to improve contact !!!

    It is sad to see an old friend get a haircut so severe. It was a fine shady corner and I hope the leaves do double-grow time.

      We would have to be straining to see into each others windows and that is only possible from upstairs. When sitting in the garden neither of our houses are overlooked. The new view however is less than ideal…

      It was only a couple of weeks ago that we discussed how we would replace the shed and rework that corner of the garden including replacing the shed. The choices now are easier and will work in a pergola or trellis to conceal the view where the pertinent branch has been removed.

      I do however think the tree will regrow over our garden, but it will take some time…

    It is going to take some re-generate into that lovely shape, Cherie

    I have a neighbours tree overhanging my garden, it’s nice when I get caught out there in a sudden freak rainstorm :-) … otherwise they’ve lived there for 5 years, inherited it and don’t do anything about it. They also have a wildly growing overhanging apple tree … that I don’t cut back :-) They go nicely with some Blackberrys growing behind the shed :-)
