Repairing the Brick Hole from Tree Damage

The tree roots having been long removed from the brick wall.  The Crew and I moved onto laying the bricks in the hole in the wall.  We laid 2 courses of bricks in the hole.  I estimated that there was between 550-650 bricks used to fill this spot and 10 bags of Pro Mix Mortar from Raineri Building Materials.

The crew guesstimates that this Tree had been growing in the brick wall for at least 5 years and had been previously cut at least one time prior to this permanent fix.  

When  we  are  finished  this  tree  will  never  grow  again-Scotty
