A population of Aspen (Populus tremula) on one of our nature reserves has rapidly succumbed to disease this year and I am struggling to identify the cause. I submitted a report via tree alert earlier in the year, but I didn’t receive a response as I suppose the team are snowed under with reports of ash dieback and other economically important diseases. The Aspen have cankers on the small branches and twigs. Searching through the internet, the closest match I can find for the disease is Black Canker (Ceratocystis fimbriata). However, I cannot find any reports of the disease in the UK and I wonder if anyone could suggest a more likely cause? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
hamilton32 posted a topic in ChainsawsI have bought a stihl 362 its a second hand 2010 model it previously had not been used with aspen fuel, previous owner mixed their own. I only really want to use aspen as I am led to believe it's better for the user, machines and environment. Is there anything I should do before putting aspen fuel in and starting it up or will it it be ok to just fill her up and go? Machine generally looks ok theres no scoring on piston etc, there's no fuel in tank currently except for a little remnants. Any help greatly appreciated thanks Hamilton
