We had a beautiful walnut tree that needed a bit of a haircut, but we weren't expecting this much. Unfortunately all the branches had to come off because the tree was stressed and rotten on places. To say I wasn't happy is an understatement. I’m no expert, but I still don’t think it needed to be as severe as this!! I have been promised by the tree surgeon with 20 years experience that it will grow back, we will see. We had decided to do all the wood clearing ourselves without realising the amount of time it would take. We’ve been clearing and chopping since Wednesday afternoon with Sunday off for good behaviour, but hope to finish it by Tuesday. On the plus side we have enough wood for a couple of years. I’ve posted a before and after photo so you can the difference plus some photos as we’ve cleared up.
