  1. As anyone had any experience of the above where you could share comments about the equipment use when determining integrity of root plate / leaning tree?
  2. No evidence of fungal fruiting bodies and no dull sound when tested with hammer. However, crown was sparse / tree stressed.
  3. Interested to hear how this is / was compromised
  4. Brill my kind of tree freaks [emoji41][emoji106]
  5. Cheers , I was thinking it was more like what I know in common speak as an American timber poplar sp. Unfortunately there are four trees each about 25m in height over a public right of way and cycle track : they have recently started to shed 750cm diam limbs (not included unions) which i believe to be the start of natural retrenchment. The trees are not like the Manchester pop variety, which although not ideal can form a new head and managed as a "fake pollard". However, the pops you suggest might be true black dont seem to regenerate as well so considering removal and replacement planting. Any comments / ideas would be interesting to see.
  6. Is anyone suitably up to speed with pop ident to advise if this is a particular species rather than the usual "hybrid black" label ?
  7. Ok cheers that was one on my list of three, the other choices being:- ganoderma australe or innonotus dryadeus [emoji106]
  8. Noticed the attached recently on two sides of a field perimeter, ash and a young oak with the new shoots blackened. Considered frost damage as well but ash stems seem to have the scarring. Any comments?
  9. Hi can anyone advise me if the above is available for free for local authorities? Cheers Tim
  10. Can I get opinions please to support my own idea as to what I am 99% sure it is?
  11. Thoughts on hard hat whilst surveying; if for what are health and safety benefits, if against what are main factors to support this. Cheers
  12. Thank you all for your comments, I will look at the exclamation type sign with tree surveying and robust risk assessment etc, PPE as required by client (full high viz) and plenty of due care and attention. Cheers
  13. Looking to carry out survey on various roads appreciate governed by highways criteria to a degree but would you suggest men at work with tree surveying attached to bottom of sign or the exclamation mark with same detail. Mindful that we are not blocking carriageway I.e. parking van in side road and surveying along highways verge? Any advice what current practice is gratefully accepted
  14. Ok thanks I have contacted tree alert just in case as I have not seen anything similar in this area before
  15. Found these holes at base of sycamore I am thinking ALB; any comments / ideas?
