This time lapse video shows the process of removing a large horse chestnut in Lewisham. As the tree was in a conservation area, the first step was to apply for approval from the council, which Amber Tree Care were granted.

The main obstacles to the job were limited access and a steeply banked garden below. We lowered limbs and core wood into a car park of a block of flats at rear and work was completed within three days.
