  1. Looks great! Definitely an excellent tool for arb. I see a lot of old Beech with Ganoderma. Seems to be part of their lifecycle. I wonder what actually creates that particular fungi to occur on beech specifically. Anyhow the Picus equipment is extremely good to see. I can't wait to get some done or buy the kit and use it. Did you buy your's outright, straight up, all cash on the table at once or another deal? If you don't mind me asking.
  2. Ok tks. Just saw your reply This is also nearby on the wood chip, probably same thing
  3. Interesting. I presume there is an info sheet or white paper on FC website? Haven't seen anything myself of this but can't say I have been looking.
  4. Hi David, Its near a young tree in the grass under mature oaks and otherwise it is a closest to a mulch circle with woodchip. I saw the same on top of a pile of woodchip on the site come to think of it.
  5. Is this some sort of porecrust or something else?
  6. to be fair haven't noticed this year yet. Usually have seen it a bit later on in Summer.

    Pole pruners

    Not to be too posh sounding but I use the old Silky long reach. great for sharp and clean cuts on pruning works. Wolf do have many attachments and I use the long reach pole with their hook for removing hang ups.
  8. Haven't seen bracket fungi on Eucalypt. Do you know if the species of Eucalypt matters? There are quite a few that grow here in UK these days. Have you seen G. on other species of Eucalypt?
  9. Lovely looking Laetiporus. Check out the Collins guide to Mushrooms & Toadstools. Will tell you all about it.
  10. Anyone using I-Tree to inventory their trees? Or trees one has to look after? I realise this is a 10 year old post but thought I would just check how things have progressed? I would like to properly inventory and map the trees I have to look after but don't have a funding source at the mo. Any suggestions would be good. I have started with the pen and paper, but that won't be too useful in the long term.
  11. Excellent. I shall pay more attention to the log piles I have made over the last few years.
  12. looks like a good case of Laetiporus sulphureus (chicken of the woods)
