Arthog, Large cypress


 

A bit over 4 feet diameter at the orange rope.

The top 5 metres to be removed, which will put the leaders below the wind, to lessen the pressure below on the suspect union where the main bole ( trunk) splits into two independent leaders. The visual indication from the bark pattern is that the 'connection' between the two stems is slightly suspect.
