Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) removal Chorelywood

Horse chestnut (Aesculus hippocastanum) this tree had to be removed due to being colonised by Honey fungus.

Honey fungus is the common name given to several different species of fungi (Armillaria) that attack and kill the roots of many woody and perennial plants. The most characteristic symptom of honey fungus is white fungal growth between the bark and wood usually at ground level. Clumps of honey coloured toadstools sometimes appear briefly on infected stumps in the autumn.

Trees that have been colonised become vulnerable to windthrow and need to be dealt with quickly to eliminate the dangers and stop the spread of the pathogen.

Oak dismantle in Chorelywood

We dismantled a tall mature Englis Oak today, unfortunately the tree was in decline and had a lot of die back.

Previous attempts of pruning had been made but the tree didn’t respond very well.

Our client had spoken with the local tree officer who had recommended the removal.

Such a shame when the main stem and buttress showed very little sign of dysfunctional wood.

With the clients young children and there play apparatus under the tree they did not want to take any chances.

The wood will be cut into firewood and stacked neatly in the garden.
