Few others whose names evade me (sorry!)


Mainly for the intelligent discussion. I found myself really trying to attain to their level of knowledge, and it's actually one of the drivers behind why I started to buy books and learn every single day (and do the Lvl 4). Seriously. Thanks guys.


Ah, of course, thanks to Steve for the forum. A stellar platform, without question.


I remember when Gary showed a pic of a book he got by Biggs & Blanchette called 'Defence Mechanisms of Woody Plants Against Fungi' and I was like what on earth is all this!? It was like reading braille. I ordered it, and now think I could understand much of it.

I started a list with different headings, members who allowed us to tip off or identified places, general, fungal and law questions, all those who posted/texted/messaged or rung when I was diagnosed with cancer, all those who have helped in my studies etc.


The list is too long and many I no longer remember by their usernames, as the relationship has gone beyond that. This site and so many people on it has provided so much assistance, help and knowledge over the years it's difficult to imagine not being part of it.

(For laughing at my crappy jokes.)


On a spiritual level:


New guy ti


(For accepting my godless ramblings with grace and good humour)


It is fair to say that the majority of my business connections have come from, or are associated with, Arbtalk. As well as being good fun it provides a hugely beneficial network which in my case is helping to keep our neglected woodlands managed.


What could make it even better? From my perspective as a woodsman, some more representation from the Forestry Commission, and dare I say it, an agent or two with an inclusive approach to help match landowners with those who want to nurture their woods and trees. Maybe this will come in time.


A big mendip style :thumbup::thumbup:😸% to Steve.
