    Tis the season to see Fungi, fa la la la la....

    By golly I think your right Mr Humphries. LOL! Yes I think Fomes, took a few shots of different angles but didn't include. Laetiporus and Postia. Photo is of the largest catch of the day. Halfway up the bole of a very large beech.

    Went out on a short foray around the woods near me. Found a few nice specimens.

    I see what you mean. I was only asking really to know how much testing goes on out there. I have fairly recently started managing the trees on an Estate and it is taking quite some arm twisting to get funds for this, though it is a private estate. I would think local authority ought to want to get into saving trees, etc.. but of course there is indeed work to do on that and obviously money involved which means difficulty. LOL! But don't want to be the "opposing opinion" lurking about the forum. 😎

    Interesting. did you have any structural testing done on the tree before felling? Picus or anything to see how developed it was?

    I was wondering about that, though this is what I would call kretzshmaria, on an old beech stump.

    This on the base of a rotting section of ash. I am guessing from looking at pictures that it might be Postia subcaesia. But it may be something completely different. Any ideas?

    Intermediate Tree Inspection Course

    Looking for the basic course in the South East somewhere near me. AA don't seem to do one near me. But maybe they will some time.

    very interesting Mr Humphries. What group of fungi does this come under? Wondering where I might find it in the Michael Jordan encyclopedia. BTW I PMed you some time ago. Don't know if you ever got my message.

    Hope it goes well with a good result. Might need to feed the tree once you know what the situation is. Give it a bit of a nutritional boost depending on the recommendations from the experts.
