Tree Pruning or Tree care
Tree Pruning or Tree care, the following picture is a perfect example of why, "If you are a tree owner you should have a tree care program for your trees"
This Robinia - Robinia pseudo acacia is a mature tree, it has been in place for a minimum of forty years and quite obviously never been thought of as a problem or thought of as "somebody elses problem".
there are literally only a couple of options here, the owner has to change the construction of the wall if the tree is to remain and not be felled.
Formative tree pruning or a tree care program should have been started when this tree was young, the trunk of the tree should have been trained to grow straight rather than being left to lean out over the wall and roadside.
The reasons why are obvious.
The wall is slowly being pushed over as the tree moves with the wind and as the girth of the trunk increases.
