This will then be colonised by all kinds of yeast
organisms, sooty moulds etc..  Although this MIGHT
not directly damage the the tree it will look
dreadful.  It is far better to wait until the tree
is in full leaf end of May/June/July or after leaf
fall but before Christmas.

I don't see the significance of the fact that the
tree is 30ft high, unless you are suggesting
reduction of the tops.  If this is the case, DON'T
DO IT!!!
Get a proper arborist/tree sturgeon and if they
recommend topping send them away because you haven't
got a PROPER arborist.

Bill
