  1. Hi, I didn’t plant this Norway maple but my dad did about 15 years ago and my dad never exactly cared for the trees beyond planting them. There’s an area of this tree I don’t see as often because there’s a willow bush in front, but I went there today to remove some grass and noticed all the black marks along the stem. I first assumed wetwood but now I assume this is bark inclusion? I absolutely adore this tree and I’m devastated thinking of anything happening to it. Can this be fixed or helped in any way?
  2. I want to start by saying I know nothing about trees, but I think the two in my front yard are not healthy. They have black bark almost all the way around and it is brittle and falling off. The trees still produce a lot of leaves, but I want to make sure they are healthy. Any thoughts? I think these are oak, but unsure.

  7. Has anyone else noticed some European Copper beech trees having different bark texture that is more textured, almost ribbed? I believe this to be Fagus sylvatica f. Purpurea or am I mid-identifying? It’s growing right next to a copper beech with normal smooth nark. I’ve seen this on a few specimens in the South Yorkshire area in domestic gardens.
  8. Hi all, Thanks for reading, We have a small apple tree that's been in the middle of our garden for at least 60 years! In recent years it hasn't been in good shape, quite a lot of small dead branches covered in this stuff pictured, now larger branches, sometimes showing just a couple of leaves on the end. We've reached the point where there are no leaves or small branches in the lower half of the tree. Side note, unusually it hasn't grown any apples this year! If anyone knows what this is - and even better what my best course of action might be to try to fix it we'd be very grateful. Thanks a lot! Dave C p.s. I thought I'd branch out a little, turn over a new leaf and see if someone here can get to the roots of the problem!
  9. *FREE HOMEMADE BROWNIES/CAKES IN RETURN FOR FREE WOODCHIPS* Hello, we are in the process of setting up a children's allotment group at our allotment. We would be grateful for woodchips to cover their mud kitchen and woodwork area. We also wanted to be able to have bark paths so the kids know exactly where to go.

  14. Bark/wood chippings to be deposited on driveway. Please call in advance so that I can place a tarp Down - tel Jon
  15. Black Country Aggregates are based in Wednesbury just off off junction 9 of M6. We are Now accepting fine Wood chippings and bark. Simply call in, wait to be directed to correct bay, tip off and leave. If you need a receipt to say you have disposed of the chippings properly that's no problem
  16. The tip/drop site is above and behind the properties. To access the tip site, proceed past the properties to find a narrow tarmac lane turning by the corner of allotments(Brimscombe end)(there is a community notice board by the gate). Take this turning to drive UP the hill. The lane turns sharp left hairpin, and becomes a farm track that it into the woods behind the houses. Proceed a short distance up this track where you find a flattened area accessing the garden of 109 and adjoining field. This is just past a stand alone lock up garage on the left and before the track narrows.

    It's a private yard at the track needs loads and loads for chickens and yard use plus home use
  25. Look at all this tree has to offer! No wonder at the Barcham Trees nursery we always sell out of this one every year. Available from September 2019 onwards, we have new stock of 8-10cm and 16-18cm girth trees but no more than 50 trees over the 2 sizes. The trees are ready to view and you can reserve trees now to save disappointment later on. Acer griseum is a fairly small tree, but a magnificent one. Originally from China and was introduced by Ernest Wilson in 1901. From an early age the bark peels to reveal cinnamon coloured under-bark. The paperbark maple is a truly stunning specimen, it has beautiful trifoliate leaves that have attractive reddish tints in the autumn. This maple does well in sun or partial shade and appreciates a sheltered position. Acer griseum does best in moist well drained soil and is not drought tolerant. Nutrient rich wet soil can inhibit autumn colour. A small growing tip - this lovely tree will generally frost out over winter giving the tree a very rounded habit. Mature height: 3-7m Mature spread: 4-5m Further product details at the link below:- https://lnkd.in/gEvJjxp Enquiries to [email protected]
