Titchmarsh tree victory is in sight.
Titchmarsh had argued that the sycamore tree in his garden in Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, was blocking his view of the Solent. Council officials have recommended that the tree should be felled but not for the sake of the gardener's view.
Tree experts found the sycamore was suffering from a dangerous fungal infection which meant branches could fall off without warning.
Titchmarsh has offered to plant a replacement.
