Impressive and sad in equal measure

How do you safely remove a huge tree hanging over a house?

Like this

Impressive work by our own Beaver Tree Services but always hard to watch a large, healthy tree go through the chipper.

This is not uncommon in my experience. Large trees are retained on building sites only to be removed later due to concerns about them (you can see the verandah of the house has been damaged by a falling limb).

It's why we need to transition our urban forest to mostly public land where it can be better protected (see the Featured Post at the top right of this page).

Thanks to Reader G for sending this one in.
