I have always liked the gleditsia in my garden (well in spring and summer anyway). Unfortunately, it had got too large for my 1/4 acre section and so, on Saturday, I had it cut down.
Luckily, I was talking to one of the gentlemen who has P.D. and goes on the Parkinson's walk and he recommended a man who goes by the name of "Monkey Power" He was wonderful. Below are just a few of the photos I took.
This Australian Frangipani was huge and, occasionally, dropped large limbs so it came down as well
The base of the gleditsia is just over 760mm diameter.
