The tree was earmarked for taking down but when the work started, some residents in the street wanted to keep the tree. The problem is: 1. On street side, the tree trunk is soft (rotten). 2. It's affecting the structural integrity of the house we're in (awaiting structural engineering report to confirm)
The plan was to take this tree down. That was abandoned. We're now facing a half done job. The tree is now growing horizontally instead of up, branches are about to touch surrounding properties.
Please update us what the plan is for this tree. I will start pruning the tree myself if it touches my property.
