  1. OK Cornubia it is. Many thanks all...
  2. MT. It does look like a Cotoneaster x suecicus but appreciate any further thoughts... Sorry the x suecicus is only about 1m height max so no go... Cornubia is a possibility though...
  3. Appreciate any thoughts on this one. Trees are about 4m and bark has prominent lenticels rather like a prunus but this is evergreen.
  4. Curious that. The stump being white would indicate Sorbus sp. Not so sure about the Prunus as a lack of prominent lenticels or at least so it would appear! Any pics of buds?
  5. Thanks Mick. I had wondered about Elm. How about Ulmus minor? Size and colour is about right... Lot of leaf litter about including Oak and Maple...
  6. Identifying trees in winter can be tricky... Can anyone identify this from the buds? Buds are about 2mm Could be Nothofagus but not sure?
  7. Ash is ring porous. This is diffuse porous. Probably Maple..
  8. Suggest not a Leylandii as being a genetic cross is entirely sterile and can only grow from cuttings. Possibly a Lawson Cypress.
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. Probably Cerioporous squamosus. White rot decay of dysfunctional xylem from previous wound. May be worthwhile further investigation if target risk is high.
  12. Yes. Would suggest Pholiota... Good example. Only problem being that could mean significant root decay perhaps as saprophytic...
  13. 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...?
