  1. I theory you can cut it back but I think that under law you would not be allowed to cause excessive harm as a result. Suggest that care and moderation is required...
  2. Fascinating... I would be rather concerned about the integrity of the tree...! Particularly a Lime. This needs further investigation to assess the decay parameters particularly if of a high target value... How about Hypholoma...
  3. Probably Cerioporous squamosus. White rot decay of dysfunctional xylem from previous wound. May be worthwhile further investigation if target risk is high.
  4. Yes. Would suggest Pholiota... Good example. Only problem being that could mean significant root decay perhaps as saprophytic...
  5. Yep. Tulip Tree is correct...
  6. Fly Agaric is a beneficial mycorrhizal fungi. A great opportunity to provide children with extra curricula education. And seriously are children going to pick up a mushroom and eat it...?
  7. OK I will go with that. Many thanks everyone Cerdiphyllum japonicum pendulum it seems to be!!
  8. Yes. the long red petiole does look like a Katsura
  9. I had thought of Cercis... Any other ideas? MT
  10. Small leaved weeping tree. Leaves about 5cm. Small dark reddish pointed buds largely opposite. Any suggestions please and thank you.
  11. Errm I would suggest looking at Kennedy v Bournemouth BC. The court held that the roots did not cause cracks in the drains. The owner of a property is primarily responsible for closing gaps in their drains and this would be the most effective way to solve the problem. The claim was dismissed. I have personally mediated in a case like this. It is for the property owner that the drains and sewers are their responsibility based on this case precedent and not the neighbouring tree owner
  12. Grifola frondosa or actually more likely Heterobasidion annosum
  13. Good afternoon This is from the base of an Oak with considerable dieback. Note the veins in the epicormic growth are still green! Any suggestions? Phytophthera?
  14. If you are still around, if you were to slice a mushroom in half, a Chanterelle would have white flesh apparently. Should smell like Apricots!
