  17. are the bumps and lumps normal burls, or have they been a result of the aphids,
  18. no, it was a dark damp day, and i was busy working. if it is something of intreast, i can go back to get better photos. the colouring is like some kind of mould, over the top of the bark as far as i can tell.
  19. does anyone know what this is. It's not a fruit tree as far as i can tell.
  20. any ideas what this is. it's on a fruit tree of sorts, as far a i can tell.

  22. has any one got any idea of how good these spikes are, Harkie Classic Climbing Irons. Harkie Classic Climbing Irons: Tree climbing equipment from Landmark Trading it's my first pair, so i'v little idea of whats what
  23. you are not suprisingly right. thats what i get for using my memory, over commen sence.
  24. hi, i'v not not been working as an arborist for long, so it is most likely that i have read it wrong at some point. (i'll need to go back into the book to check). I thought Angiosperm relied on compression wood more for mechanical loading. so a wound to the top side would not create as big a problem.
