Hi, First post here I want to put a 16x8 ft shed in this space, problem is I need another 40cm width which means cutting through a section of root 40cm x 1.5 mtrs, here are some photos, will this damage this mature Beech tree ? I would really feel guilty if it did, here are some photos, any advice folks ??
