A Cedar Tree with a deadly infection

Infection in trees is a very regular occurrence, and seen very often in the media when a potential danger to a tree population is highlighted, Dutch Elms Disease being probably the most famous of all.

This particular Cedar Tree had a disease that can prove fatal, and this certainly was the case. Honey Fungus was fruiting bodies at the base of the tree which looks very much like Mushrooms. Although to most this would seem pretty harmless, Honey Fungus is a very real tree killer, and the Cedar was heavily infected and had to be removed.

After surveying the area, we utilised our high access platform to gradually remove the limbs from the main trunk, and then gradually removed the trunk of the tree to ground level.
