    Any other pictures of the fungi? From that angle, the cut looks a little dodgy.

    Looking for a decent cordless chainsaw

    Have used battery top handle saw, pretty good battery power and definitely lasts an afternoon of cuts, have a long reach cutter battery, both husqvarana. Out in the country, so getting fuel can sometimes be a pain, therefore battery does me good from that perspective. Have yet to see a big chainsaw on the market battery wise, got an old Husqvarana 365sp petrol, don't know if battery has the same power.

    Blow, blow, thou Spring? wind,

    Just finished cutting up a mature pine that came down in South East area yesterday in the strong winds. Pine had a bracket growing up it just below where it snapped and fell, hollowing trunk and ivy growing inside it. But still full of life on top. Until yesterday.... Bits and pieces all over the estate after winds of about 45mph down here.

    Possibly Pseudotrametes?

    Hurrah! got one!

    Possibly Pseudotrametes?

    I'm thinking two possibilities, but not the expert either so may be leading you down the garden path. Either Inonotus species or otherwise and who knows, but worth a guess; Daedaleopsis species. However David Humphries is the expert on this matter.

    Brackets on Alder

    Mr Humphries got there first. I was going to say Ganoderma species or Fomes, but looks more like Ganorderma as he says. What is the future of this tree?
