Garden Responsibility decision

Postby ChoccyCake » June 25th, 2018, 3:10 pm

On Monday 21 May, there was a company of so-called tree
surgeons ( I call them tree b***t****s butchers) because they
didn't use safety harnesses or hard hats, as my photo might
explain.

That company 'pruned' or to my way of thinking they
butchered the trees from the insides of the 2 cherry trees
leaving the front tree with open cuts to the branches and
to the back also taller cherry tree (right) has dead branches
left so if they get infected and fall over this winter.

I don' t know if you will understand or not, but when those
so called tree surgeons had finished that day, it felt and still
feels like they've stolen all of my 28+ years of my garden
memories which has and is breaking my heart badly. although
I used to love the garden now I don't like it at all. :sad:

So much so that on 24 June, I spent a lot of the day in tears
partly grieving for my lost memories and for the worries caused
by neighbours contradictory [sp] advice telling me whether
to water the garden or not to water the garden, Or then
being told to weed or not. Or what the gardeners should do
even though I have it planned ahead.

I decided that I can no longer be responsible for the garden,
that is what my neighbours can do. They don't know what
a weed looks like. :)

Sorry for such a miserable OP and thread
My 2 very loved cats are Smudge, an 10 year old female, her feline 'friend' is Tommy, a 13 year old male.
They are both black and white.



I will always remember Marmalade and Mischief
also their funny ways.

Don't grieve too much Sal, wait until you see what next spring will bring. I have watched tree surgeons who have worked on houses near me where they do 'open-up' the inside canopy of a tree to encourage light and air in and, hence, new growth.

Phloppy but those so called tree surgeons have done the same
to a plane tree that is opposite my balcony also 2 sycamores
killed them all and they all of the trees have Tree Preservation
Orders on them. I can't even look at the garden from home's
windows now. They have been coppiced and pruned in the
past but never this drastically.
It has given me a few ideas for my balcony after I have removed
some moss and ivy

Can't beat a well trimmed bush and the endless scope for opportunity that it opens up
Oh my, my, oh hell yes.

JW the cherry trees are over one hundred and fifty years old
same for the other now killed trees. I did prune a lavender
bush and killed it but when I look in to the garden the favourite
places that my cats had played in those memories have gone
due to that awful company

We've had trees brutally (or so we thought) cut back here by tree surgeons, and it's actually been the best thing for the trees.
Don't panic at the initial cut, is what I'm saying.
There was a young Scots bloke called Piglet
Who walked round his house in his singlet
When his eyes fell on Poods
His thoughts turned quite lewd
Now the clothing he likes are her fishnets

Piggy the 2 sycamores and plane trees were cut in late March
but have hardly any leaves at all. If they fall then they will damage our flats or road or other neighbours homes.

The people on The Beechgrove Garden are forever hacking huge amounts of stuff off trees and stuff, but then they show you it next year and it looks great.

TS whatever happens to all 5 of the trees, the memories
are gone for good. Just thinking about it now upsets me a lot,,
no TS you didn't upset neither did anyone else here honestly
