  1. Where are these DED trees? Eastbourne? With regard to OP DED will likley finish the tree of in a summer or two. Looking at the extent of infection. If it's been ringed, it's for the chop. I've sent alerts to EBC a number of times of late with no reply and no action. I don't cut (professionally [emoji6]) anymore so no conflict of interest.
  2. Tricky one from photos. Can't say K doesn't occur this high as this as it can, but usually things are much worse for the tree and usually it would be located along a wound as others have said. There are a number of bark occouring saps that look a bit like the secondary fruit body of K. This doesn't look like it to me.
  3. Here's another wi k very high up. First was lime this is a beech. Raised spit of land. Chalk with extremely thin soil horizon. Stem has K up to 1.5m above buttresses. Mind boggling how this was still vertical.
  4. Here's one of Kretch getting quite high up.
  5. I've come accross this. Doesn't seem to be like ADB, (sorry if OT) as not emenating from leaf veins. I've posted elsewhere but am looking for suggestions. There is an Ash tree immediately next to this one with no symptoms. Very strange.
  6. Leaf size and colour are not set in stone. To my mind even shape differs from region to region. Flowers and seeds are the only structures that do not alter significantly. Those interested in bonsai regularly prune roots and carry out other odd practices such as defoliating to maintain a small leaf size in some maple spp.
  7. This may not be the precise best place to post this. However I've spotted an Ash nearby to my home that is exhibiting some significant foliage stress. I've taken a sample and it does not seem to be emenating from the leaf veins as per ADB rather from the leaf margin. I'm interested in what this could be for obvious reasons. The tree stands imediatley next to another which is not showing these signs of foliage stress. My next thought was verticillium wilt but it doesnt appear to match images I can see from a quick Google. All thoughts and theories welcomed. O
