    In addition to the sponge heartwood, when felling, it became obvious that there were a number of small brackets about 8-10cm on some of the branches. Here are some shots. Potentially fairly regular bracket though probably old as they have desiccated.

    I would have to agree with Mr H. But did you happen to see the colour underneath?

    Morus alba looks close so White Mulberry could be the one then. Interesting. Not seen one I don't think.

  12. AJStrees

    ID help please

    Yes indeed it does look very much like willow. I always try to find out what it is before I cut it down in case its something special. LOL!

    Large Sycamore free near Wigan

    That is a nice sized tree. Might be good habitat for ecological purposes.

    Western Red Cedar I'd help

    Very nice trees when old and big. Thuja plicata, not a true Cedar as such and not of the genus Cedrus but of Thuja. Yes lovely smell it has and beautiful bark (in my opinion). Good pics.
