Two Conservation Arborists in One Tree

Whilst working as an Artist-in-Residence at the City of London Corporation's Epping Forest I spent a year photographing the ancient trees and people who live, work, study and visit the forest. This picture was taken near High Beach in Epping Forest whilst I was photographing the Conservation Arborists at work. In this image they are reducing the canopy of a hollow Beech tree which is suffering from Ganoderma. This is only being done due to its proximity to the road and danger to road users. I had to wait a few hours to get both arborists in the the shot at the same time.
