I have a Forsytheia Tree growing out of my stone wall. The wall is approx 5 feet high and the trunk is growing out of the side at about 4 feet from the ground. Only one stone appears to have loosened despite the trunk growing out of the wall being approximately 6inches thick. Indeed the wall seems amazingly secure considering the size of the trunk.
What is the best approach to manage this situation? Is it manageable without taking the wall down? Do I need to kill the tree?
I assume if I do nothing the wall will eventually collapse?
