First I cut down a small Magnolia that had more or less died for some reason, it would never recover so it got the chop, well actually I sawed it down as the trunk was not thick and we chopped it up.
Another small tree to come down that had actually outgrown its spot and was leaning badly to one side with multiple trunks took a bit more work and had to be done over a couple of days. This tree had almost pushed my lovely little crab apple over. Both trees were covered with clematis C Freckles which is totally rampant and has been rampaging from one end to the other on one side of my small but long narrow garden.
Freckles is a pretty clematis with a slight scent, when we pulled the branches down covered in clematis this is what we found!
