One of our oak trees had a branch with rot on the upper side. The branch was 18 inches thick. We could not see the rot from below. A good tree surgeon checked the tree over, removing all dead and diseased wood, for 400quid. It took all day, and three men. We ended up with a large pile of shredding for mulching, a log pile for wildlife,and peace of mind. Both our oak trees have preservation orders on. That does not stop diseased wood being removed. It does stop healthy wood being removed.
