Earlier this summer we were asked by a landlord to do a tree survey on a Walnut tree in Eynsham, near Oxford. The problem here was that the tree was shadowing the whole garden, and that of the neighbouring garden. When in leaf Walnut trees have a very dense canopy and a big leaf, this blocks a lot of light and takes up a lot of space.
Our recommendation in this instance was to remove the tree, for the reasons above plus the roots were starting to show evidence on the path and in the neighbours garden.
Walnut’s are lovely trees in the right position and location, this was now not a good position for a tree this size or species.
