    After you take it down it will look just as bad all the roots, it think its roots anyway will be left all over the wall. I would make sure he knows this before starting. It takes a while for it to clean naturally too but its the best way you wont disturb the wall

    i'm all wfp now but when i started i had lots of houses on this hill, all ladders all dead cheap this house was £8 i sold up & now got it back for £18 but i would'nt do the other side off ladders for any money nowadays - must say i'm looking forward to a bit of high work but i wouldn't wanna do it every day. at one time my mate had a flat at the top & we had to walk up this hill every friday night hammered - lots of falls & sleeping behind cars lol
