Day of the End of the Monkey Puzzle

Hope you are all well and enjoying Spring.

I’ll send pictures over the day today of the monkey puzzle being taken down.

The first stage today will be to lower all the branches as we want to protect the veteran rhododendrons beneath it.

After we get the branches cleared, we will make a plan to fell the trunk which we hope to make use of.

It looks like the arborist is saying a final prayer for the tree. He’s not. Just got his carabineer stuck.

Half way...

A couple of videos of the ziplines.

There you go folks, that’s all the “foliage” off. We will clear it and then get the trunk down soon. To be continued...

Thank you John and the Premier Tree Team.
