  1. Excellent - glad you are sorted
  2. Thanks both I'll try to swing by and get up and have a proper look. Thanks again
  3. First, sorry about the lousy picture. Fruiting bodies spotted on an old lime pollard, mainly near the old pollard heads and reaching up some now dead regrowth. There are some more small fruiting bodies though below the old pollard head. Any help appreciated - thanks
  4. We've got an Alpine Magnum and not very far from you if you are still stuck. Cheers
  5. Totally Trees Ltd is an Arb Approved contractor serving domestic and commercial clients in South Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Warwickshire. We have a full time vacancy for a qualified arborist/climber. CS30,31,38,39 minimum, B+E towing preferred. We need someone who can do a reduction or a thin, have experience of rigging and not afraid to use a rake. Sense of humour an advantage PPE and workware provided.

  6. Just thought, is it worth the effort of having a sample identified just in case?
  7. Thanks David - I'll try to get back to the tree and llift a fruiting body to see what is going on. I doubt if I have stumbled onto a new discovery but never say never. I'll go with the Ganoderma resinaceum id for now though. Thanks for your help.
  8. Found this at the base of a bramley apple. The tree is in a raised bed with 3 brackets present. There is gravel on the surface of the bed that has been absorbed by the fruiting body. The fruiting bodies smell of mushrooms and are squidgey. There are areas of dead bark where the bodies are joined to the stem and white mycelium? beneath. The tree is dying back badly with very few of this years leaves left and very small fruit. Just wondered if it could be Inonotus dryadeus? If not, any ideas?

  12. Hi all Just looked at a 25 year old cedar in a back garden with browning of some needles. This is starting at the lower branches of the tree, the upper crown is unaffected so far. There are plenty of new shoots near the affected ones. There is no history of environmental change at the site. The tree has been getting worse of a period of three years. I've attached a couple of pictures to see if it helps. I'm thinking it looks like needle blight (sirococcus conigenus) but can't find much info that is based in the uk. Many thanks in advance Julian
  13. Hi All A friend of mine is running the London Marathon this year in aid of The Childrens Trust which we support here every year with Steve's fabulous raffle. If anyone would like to contribute to an amazing cause, please follow this link Virgin Money Giving | Fundraising | Mark Tucker's London Marathon We also have a 12 year old friend being treated at the trust and their work is fantastic but unbelievably expensive. Even a small amount helps, so please give a bit if you feel you can. Thanks everyone. Cheers Julian
