Not sure  what the comment: “Sometimes it can be just a matter of pruning 
some branches  back” relates to though?





Saw several examples of trees apparently keeling over due to weakened wet  
soils this summer(?) Particularly a row of pollarded Pops, which IMO were  
overdue for repeat pollarding. The lot were removed but I suspect they could  
have 
been pollarded and left to grow on again; just a matter of pruning branches  
back?
 
The floods were interesting (well I found it interesting) for illustrations  
of soil shear-strength being reduced by waterlogging, sometimes where you'd  
least expect it.
