Reference 18/2122/TRE
Alternative Reference
Application Validated Mon 17 Sep 2018
Address 14 Perrys Gardens West Hill Ottery St Mary EX11 1XA
Proposal T1 - leaning oak tree: reduce height by 30% (of crown) - Max: diameter cuts of 12cm
Shorten all laterals by up to 20% to leave a balanced form - max diameter cuts of 8-10cm
Target pruning cuts made leaving parent branch over 3 times diameter of cut size.
Reasons: This semi mature oak has grown from Devon bank at 45 degrees angle (reaching for light past previously felled tree). It is significantly weighted over adjacent property, and would be deemed hazardous if left to reach maturity. Dry conditions this year make it difficult to make accurate prediction as to the stability in the Devon bank.
The reduction will relieve weight throughout the crown and lessen risk of failure.
