Today a team of our tree surgeons in Norfolk are working on a Beech tree…The work was to reduce the overall dimensions of a large Beech tree located in a small back garden. The tree was in a conservation area so before any work could be carried out we had to fill in a tree work application form stating what work we would like to undertake on the tree, this then had to be sent into the local authority.
The local authority has then got six weeks to decide whether or not the work could be carried out, the application is also made published on the local authorities web site local residents are able to view them.
After the six weeks you should receive conformation allowing you to carry out the tree work.
On this application we applied to reduce the radius of the tree to not less than 8m this equated to a reduction of approximately 2m.
