  2. It is defo a Sycamore. It was damaged when it was planted and one of the LA tree team decided to make a feature of it a few or more years ago. It's opposite the play area if I remember correctly.
  3. You could always ask the customer if they wanted it replaced? Remove the entire thing and replace it with a small Prunus of some kind?
  4. I agree with most of below. Have a registered Arb Consultant come see the tree and produce a report. This will provide you with information on moving forward. Ask the consultant to provide you with basic things you can look for such as root plate movement. This may help put your mind at ease.

  7. I've not seen any signs of badgers in the area but it's a good possibility. It would explain the depth of cuts in the tree. Sent from my SM-G920F using Arbtalk mobile app
  8. It was a strange one for sure! The wildlife cam is a good idea though. Cheers folks
  9. hi folks, While out looking through one of our woodlands in Knowsley I can across the damage to this Horse chestnut. I would usually put this down to mindless vandalism however this was in a rather hard to reach place in the wood and there are no tool marks! Anyone have any thoughts or ideas what they reckon it is??
  10. Hi Folks, Came across this little critter today.I only have this pic though Is it Saprophytic? And what is it?
  11. Hi David, its English Oak, I don't have any more photos unfortunately. The areas behind the brackets(that the gardener had so kindly kicked from the tree) were very decayed and pliable. Hope this helps? Colin:thumbup:
  12. Hi Folks, Came across this on my travels today. Its on the base of an old Oak and has around 6 other friends that look just like it. no deformation or die-back in the crown however. Cheers
  13. Hi Folks, came across this yesterday. Any ideas? Its on an old Chestnut that is now showing signs of decline.
