Managing Trees with Decay & Dysfunction

Stellar! Thanks for the time to put these up; they are the best ammo for breaking down the walls of ignorance over here.

 

Of course pics of the dreaded associates can make a dent in the mycophobic mindset as well...

Thanks Guy, appreciate that comment.

I guess its exactly what these forums are for.

 

The shared experiences (good & bad) help us all move on to a better place.

" In my shop, when we speak of columns, we mean columns of discoloration and decay. I knew that was not what you meant!"

 

Your shop must be full of pathologists, disease-centric. :sneaky2:

 

"I don't know much about the tracing, I hear folks refer to it."

1 Tracing compacted bark down to phloem, to allow normal expansion.

2 Tracing included bark, to promote grafting and formation of a branch bark ridge, and avoid rams-horning.

 

I'll start a new thread on that. :001_cool:

 

Any chance of some of this? Very interested

Case of misidentification from me on this one.

 

Thought that the white forming bulby fruitbody (@ 2 minutes) in this video from three years ago was 'possibly' Fomes fomentarius

Turns out that it was a Ganoderma bracket. Fairly unusual (Ime) at 20 feet up on a live oak stem.

 

Possibly G. applanatum' date=' but not microscopically confirmed.

Seen them that high on a live Hornbeam Stem. Will you get the Resistograph on it just to see?
