  1. It's for a number of real trees that have been subject to root damage during construction. I have used sugar washes in the past at the request of tree officers in similar circumstances, and have heard of the Bartlets treatment. I just want to be aware of any research or commonly used practices in order to back up my recommendations.
  2. Brilliant. I'll take a look at that. Thank you.
  3. Morning all, Im trying to source reputable information on the application of sugars via ground washes. I have heard mention of molasses solutions and I believe that Bartlets are proponents of the practice. Thanks in advance.
  4. What are your thoughts on the id. on pic 3 David?
  5. Jules, I note that you are in Scotland, I am in Yorkshire. Further reading would suggest that tabescens rarely occurs outside the south of England in the UK, so unlikely we will see it in our home ranges.
  6. Lack of ring on the stem would rule out armillaria which I had initially assumed when I saw its location. Pretty sure its not spindleshank or a Pholiota. Alternative suggestions always welcome?
  7. (Also meant to post this on Davids 'dual decay' thread, so if a moderator could possibly move? - many thanks).
  8. Morning chaps and (and ladies) I have posted before but under a different log in, lost touch with you for a while when the forum changed. I came across this on a lime that we have been monitoring this week. Very little by way of target so we have had the luxury of watching this tree over a couple of years. Kretzschmaria deusta recorded a couple of years ago, but now very evident. Young fruiting bodies of Pleurotus ostreatus (If my id is correct?) also present this year and in the same affected area. Is this common? Thanks in advance.
