Cheers all ... looks like there's a few different opinions on what they may (apart from pics 1 & 2 but may be too old anyway) but that's more than likely because the pics I took weren't great.


If I'm there "On site" is there any way as a newbie I can tell if it's Ash, Pine or Spruce ???


Another slightly off subject question which I may be better off asking in another thread but how does Ash Dieback spread ... we're pretty remote and have a lovely Ash in the garden taht also shields us from the property behind, we had wood delivered last autumn and I'm sure some of it had the Ash ... is it fungus ... on it ... can it spread froma dead log to a tree 15 mtrs away does anyone know???

Not on ash logs, spores are released from dead leaf material.


Cheers for that much appreciated and for everyone else's input as well ?

Anyone know what this might be as well and also it's awful close to the house, are it's roots likely to cause damage although it's been there a long time and doesn't seem to have done so far.20200731_144635.thumb.jpg.03ae98233ec4abd3421e55c6268ceed1.jpg20200731_144645.thumb.jpg.62c1f1a672fe2b5575fcfaa6cacbf5d4.jpg20200731_144655.thumb.jpg.b6c4f065f59ee1a684dd1466ba3b06cc.jpg

Hybrid sorbus and if you like it and no problems leave it be


Thank you for that .... it's not causing a problem at the moment, it was just a fried said the other day is it good to be that close to the house / foundations.


We do though have to cut right through it's root very close to the trunk as there's no alternative path for an outlet pipe for a sewerage treatment plant and am concerened it may harm the tree but have no choice.

And some more please if people don't mind, the 1st 5 are from 2 different piles at the same location and the last 2 are logs I've already chopped up.
