Sadly, we had a huge tree come down here at Chataigne House in France. Part of it fell down in a storm, and it took another two leylandii which were forming an archway to the pool area with it. We were lucky it didn’t land on the pool house or heater. But unfortunately, it meant the rest of the tree was unstable and had to be removed. It was fascinating to watch the skill of the tree surgeon at work. I’m making a time lapse video of it too (see below).
You can see in the foreground the remains of the leylandii which were forming the entrance, and the pool house and heater to the right which were narrowly avoided!
Here is the video:
