I would like to express my grateful thanks to John Flannigan and his team of tree specialists at North Somerset Council for the speedy and efficient way in which they dealt with what was a potentially dangerous situation at the Lake Grounds in Portishead. Without warning a very large lime tree toppled in recent high winds (fortunately no one was injured). From the exterior, the tree seemed in perfect condition yet the trunk was completely hollow. Within 24 hours the tree was removed along with a thorough examination of all the other limes. Using the only thermal imaging specialist in the UK, a further two other dangerous trees were quickly identified and remedial work started immediately and still continues. What a fine example of professionalism, no red tape, no expensive written surveys - just getting the job done without fuss and with the safety of the public upper-most in their minds - thank you.
