Emergency Tree Felling during Storm

NPT Homes' Arborist Team

While undertaking planned tree maintenance during a severe gale, our Arborist Team noticed that one of the trees growing on a communal grass verge, a 15m high poplar tree, was moving.

Further investigations revealed some of the trees roots were rotten and there was a large cavity within the base of its stem.

Senior Neighbourhood Operative, Martyn Davies attended the site and decided that the tree was dangerous and needed to be taken down ASAP.

The tree was taken down and as suspected, the tree was in an advanced state of internal decay.

Four new oak trees will be planted in its place
