  1. Thanks for replys guys, Exactly my thoughts on the oaks and I'm not sure how they would manage creating habitat because it will eventually lead to deadwood which will have to be removed as the trees are both over cars/roads and footpaths. Haha I'm sure we can all guess who the report is by! But I'm not naming or shaming or saying any of it's wrong. I'm just saying that in my opinion I would take a different approach to managing the mentioned trees. As ultimately they are being maintained for safety and amenity aesthetical purposes.
  2. http://www.nomorebirds.co.uk/bird%2Dfree%2Dfire%2Dgel%2Dkit%7E242 Ok so found the fire gel. So that element is sorted!
  3. Hi all, Working on a big quote, I've got a report from a well known arb firm that I have been working from. But I'm coming unstuck a bit! One element that has been added to the suggested works is " apply spray for leaf minor" on a holm oak !? I've inspected the tree and see no sign ( didn't even know it affected oaks) Also there is suggestions for the installation of steel bracing..., which I thought is an out of date practice? I would either remove the tree as it's near a very main road, or reduce to remove the risk of failure or cobra her up? Also to quote for is the application of "fire jel" to deter birds nesting and fouling... Never herd of it! Do we need a ticket!? Where the hell can I buy it !? Also on the list is suggestion that two very mature oaks to "initiate veteranisation" which I'll be honest is out of my depth and I'm not about to go hacking up two stunning trees, but I see no need for this either!? Trees are in good health! Could do with deadwooding for safety as over footpaths.... Ain't broke don't fix it in my opinion. I am looking for someone with the relevant Certs, know how, and equipment, to servey a further 20 trees or so, some are very!! Large poplars that require decay testing. Sorry it's a long one guys, thanks in advance.
