Horse chestnut falls across neighbours driveway

Well it wasn’t the whole tree, only a limb, but the damage to the car was enough for it to be written off by the insurance company. We we called in to clear up the fallen limb and remove the tree, which was in decline and infected with honey fungus.

The horse chestnut, or conker tree, located in Codsall still had some life in it and was safe to climb, otherwise a MEWP (cherry picker) would have been required to remove the branches which grew between several telephone lines.
