  1. sycamore table

    cheers for all the advise! as Mr Humphries has pointed out, looks like the missus is gonna have to allow this one to remain inside the house!
  2. Public Liabilty and Employers Liability Insurance

    I've used Arborisk in the past who seemed good. Just recently switched to Hiscox as their PI was more competetive
  3. sycamore table

    I have had a slab of sycamore seasoning for around 10 years in my shed and now finally got around to wanting to do something with it. I want to use it as an all weather outdoor garden table but am unsure on the best treatment to use? I'd like to keep the natural colour of the wood so simply want to keep it protected from the elements, someone i know who does wood turning suggested boiled linseed oil as opposed to raw, any thoughts or other ideas please?? thanks Nick
  4. confused ash tree?

    thanks for all the replies, looks like a weeping ash it is then. I'd not seen a young one before, every day a school day i guess!
  5. confused ash tree?

    I considered the weeping ash but just didn't think they dropped like that so young? If it is why would someone plant a tree like that in the middle of nowhere??
  6. confused ash tree?

    a colleague found this in an open field in yorkshire, any ideas what is going on here?


    <p>yes have read this thanks. helpful info but didn't quite cover all the bases i needed. fussy client wanting to know all sorts of predictive data, told my boss that if they were willing to pay for me to do pHd i'd happily give them all the data needed!</p>

    <p>having a nice xmas up here, sun is shining and all the pubs in the town are now finally open since the floods last year, have a good one yourself and no doubt speak in the new year!</p>



    <p>Hi Nick</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Not something I'm aware of top of my head and I'm now away from the office and resources for a couple of weeks. </p>

    <p>Had you come across this one by Kenton ? </p>

    <p>Looks to have a useful reference list at the end that may offer some interesting avenues to explore. Have a great Christmas with the tribe. Speak soon, David</p>



    <p>hello mate</p>

    <p>hope all going well your end. busy up my way, lots of projects on the go right now.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>a client has asked me to supply data on predicted tree growth rates on an annual basis. i've been searching all over the net and have a good deal of stuff, most of it contradictory but i guess it's a hard one to nail. was wondering if you might be able to point me in the direction of anything useful? no worries if not, i appreciate you may already be on holiday mode and heading home as we speak.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>have a great xmas with the folks and catch you in the new year!</p>

  10. Tree growth rates / class / yield tables?

    hello Rob i'm after the same info now, how did you get on finding what you needed?
  11. id help with this one please

    Knew about that but thought it was exclusively for TO's, shame I didn't realise, hopefully they'll have another next year
  12. id help with this one please

    You should start charging mate, you'd be able to finally retire😀 Not seen much yet, fair few ganos on beech woodland trees mainly and the odd hispidus here and there. Miss the LTOA events, always great opportunity to hear about what's afoot in the world of arb, shame the north don't have something similar going on, at least not that I'm aware off?
  13. id help with this one please

    Thanks David 👍🏻
  14. id help with this one please

    have been sent these pics taken at the base of an Ash tree, first thought was P.squarrosa but seems too smooth so then thought it might be the ringless honey fungus....any thoughts out there?
