Massive sycamore trunk removal in Levenshulme

This massive sycamore tree growing in a back yard of a Levenshulme terrace had been previously pollarded, leaving just a trunk.  This had grown back into a thick canopy and the tree was continuing to knock over the back wall with it’s annual growth.  It was time to get it removed to prevent any further damage to the wall.  The unstable wall was taken down by a builder then we came in to do the removal.  We had the stump ground out the following day so the so the wall could then be rebuilt with minimal disruption to the client.
