Village tree surgery attracts media attention

ImageThe small, quiet village of Lower Jasonbury rarely appears in the news, so residents were surprised when a vast flotilla of international media teams arrived to witness the latest project of experienced tree surgeon, Walter Yabberson.

The large, aged oak that stands in the centre of the village square finally succumbed to a mould infection early this year and since then has developed a dangerous lean. Assessors from the Rural Communities Board determined that if the tree were not removed there was a risk that it could fall and damage the nearby pub "The Baker's Legs", and so Yabberson was called in.

But it was when Yabberson announced his controversial approach to the tree's removal that international media began to pay attention ; Yabberson is removing the tree from the bottom up. "This method has not been attempted before" said Yabberson, "but it appears to be going well so far".
