Help with identification

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was wondering if anyone could identify whats happening with our Horse Chestnut? We had a limb break off in recent winds and discovered what appears to be some kind of disease/fungus inside the limb. We have noticed that other branches to a lesser extent appear to be going the same way?

Many Thanks

You'll need to put pictures of the tree up as a whole, some pics of the base and any wounds around the main stem too. Is there black ooze on the main stem anywhere?

Looks like its had some Phytophthora (bleeding canker) which it has survived, but its been left with structural weakness.
