A garden flower photo (Acer pseudoplatanus)

A sad end to a friendly tree.

Lots more light will get to your window now. Will you plant another tree?

Hi Gillian,

Yes the garden is a lot brighter and feels more spacious as there is no canopy of branches filling the sky, so on balance we are very happy with the change.

We did plant a small tree "Double Flowering Almond Tree" in the corner of the garden a few months ago which we hope will grow through the years. It flowers in early spring so we hope it will provide the first colour in the garden after the winter.

Also we still have some tall birch trees so the house does not look 'lost' or still has scale when viewed from the road. So we won't be cutting any other trees down :)
