We have 25 wonderful mature trees on the perimeter of our garden but sadly one of them a large beech tree at the top of the field has died due to a fungal infection in its roots. We contacted Lampeter Tree Services , who have been to us before to cut a large branch off our Yew tree. They came and assessed the tree and then made arrangements for the electricity to be switched off on the day that the tree was to be felled, as the power lines ran close to the tree.
It was all completed without any mishaps at all. The tree was about 150 years old apparently and so it is very sad that it had to come down. The trunk was all cut up into manageable logs and the small branches were chopped up into wood chips. The Lampeter Tree surgeons worked very hard and completed the job with efficiency and care. We now have a huge amount of logs at the top of the field which Jim has to bring down into our yard for storage for a year or two and then we will be able to burn it and keep warm!
Quite an exciting couple of days!
