Biometric scaling- elaborate?

Recommended Posts

Hi anyone that might be listening, seems the forums a bit devoid these days!

 

Does anyone have a deep enough understanding of biometric scaling to help elaborate on the 4th dimensional fractal nature as mentioned ? I am assuming maybe incorrectly it refers to the foliar area versus dry mass and the management of reserves within the fractal mass.

 

I think their is a link with regards decay and retrenchment of trees with decays that would mean both the pruners and the non pruning arguments have been chewing the same bone from either end.

 

If thats what i think it is, and im right, this is a pretty cool settling of a long fought battle !

 

heavy I know but somebody gets it.

I have missed your posts,  and i am not entirely sure what you are asking. I have an inkling,  but an idiots version would be helpful

I'll second the request for an idiot's guide please! Fractals are pretty fascinating in themselves so I'd be interested to hear about them in the context of tree biology and structure.

I was thinking only yesterday that the patterns on cyclamen leaves are reminiscent of the Mandelbrot Set.

We're either on the verge of a scientific breakthrough that will rival the discovery of sub atomic particles, or Tony's been eating the mushrooms rather than studying them. 🤣

      Had some woodchips delivered. Lovely quality and for free. Was able to start my garden project. Am so pleased with the service that i have decided to give a tip for my next tip waste load.

      Excellent result last year. I was contacted by some tree surgeons through the site after about 6 months. They were thoughtful and helpfully left me with several piles of clean woodchip, which now helps suppress weeds under my trees. Great site. Thanks

      Extremely helpful and friendly main contact and the allotment was very easy to tip at. Much appreciated!

      Answered phone, dropped off within 10 mins. Access ok for transit but no bigger. 3.5m3 load. Spot on, saved me a trip to the yard.

      Brilliant! Had two loads delivered, spot on time, great bloke, would not even take a few Bob to cover his time and fuel, over the moon. I just have to cut and split 6 tonnes of logs now. I will have to buy the wife a new splitting axe for Christmas. 😁
