Our residents association have entered the Pride of Place competition for the first time this year. Very Happy

At the entrance to our estate are a line of trees of different kinds, but there are 2 which are dead Crying or Very sad we want to remove these tree's tomorrow and tidy up the other weeping trees on the row. They are weeping tree's (sorry I can't think of the name of them) but we need to trim these trees as they are not looking great at the moment, they are overgrown and haven't been maintained over the last 8 years at all. Some of the trees are growing side ways against the supporting wall. How would we tidy up these tree's?

Looking forward to your advise.

For a job like that, Lucyloo you might be better and safer to get some advice from a tree surgeon, unless your talking small trees. Doing a job like that without knowing what your doing will cause more problems than it would solve. Also, I'm certain the person doing it has to be certified in the use of a chainsaw, being in a public place.

Thanks Bill, one of the residents family members is experienced in this field and I have been informed this evening that he is going to come over and hel us tomorrow afternoon with some advise and experience Very Happy . Hopefully we will be able to get it sorted this weekend. The tree that is dead is about 9ft and it is 8 years old.

For the other weeping trees they are only about 5ft tall, they need to be pruned back as much as possible, as at the moment there is alot of dead undergrowth if you know what i mean.
