Wall Crack

I got an email from a neighbour this afternoon, letting me know about a bay tree of mine, the branches of which were causing such stress to a retaining wall that a large crack has emerged.

Cognizant of this occurrence, I sent round old Edmund Tuttle the gardener (!), armed with long-handled lopper and saw.

The tree has been largely removed, including branches, though they remain under the ground at the wall.

It appears that some kind of root-killer might be necessary, in order to stop the said tree in its tracks.
