    What's this fungi

    I don't think it is as you tend to get that more on oak and it would probably be dark brown as it decomposes during winter (if the photo is uptodate) Are you sure its not expanding foam? Some one maybe has filled up cavities in the tree?

    Stactic cobra bracing tips?

    Thank you thats really helpful!
  10. Hi got a project installing a static cobra bracing system for the first time in a twin stemmed macrocarpa which already has a crack but tree officer wants to retain with non-invasive bracing. . Measured the stems with defect and going for the 8tonne system, also aware that the installation should be 2 thirds of the toal height above the defect. Any tips? Especially on pre-tensioning - what is the best tool to do this? Thanks in advance.

    Draw on tree Picture / illustrate Work

    Good idea, but i prefer to use paint to anonate my photos when in office, the finished product looks more professional without the scribbles but appreciate the phone app has the advantage of saving time out of office

    Fungi ID on Atlas cedar trunk

    Thanks David, Sorry to be a pain and keep on asking questions but I know you have extensive experience with root investigtions. Its not something I have really done before. If I were to hand dig what exactly would you recommend? Digging around all main butresses to a depth of? and would you just be checking for decay using mallet and probe or would there be anything else I should be looking out for? Thanks in advance!
