    In the video that follows we can see different types of fungi. video-output-408D6DD4-DC04-418E-A4CF-A447A25A5DDD.mov
  2. Any ideas on this one? Probably obvious but haven't been able to identify it. Found 5m up an oak stem, lots of snap-outs and fractured limbs
  3. Looking in my books, I can't find the name of this Mushroom. Here (Kent Surrey borders) I have found two quite separate groups, they smell good and look right but I want to confirm edibility. Definitely not asking anyone to confirm their edibility, just give me the name to look up if you have any ideas. Thanks in advance.
  4. Hello, Found this fungi at the bottom of a beech tree and was hoping that someone could verify it as Kretzscmaria deusta. It was under ivy so could have been disturbed whilst uncovering. Thanks
  5. Hello! Would it at all be possible if people could fill out my dissertation survey which is looking at how private woodland owners and managers are dealing with ash dieback and the main influences regarding management plans for infected Ash. I would really appreciate it! Many thanks https://rau.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/chalara-survey
  6. Please identify. I’m certain what it is but want confirmation please for insurance purposes.
  7. Started a thread on this last year but didn't have photos of underneath. It has reappeared again and relevant photo attached. (Tried to update the old thread but site wouldn't let me) Any info much appreciated, thank you. <<EDIT: Apologies for poor quality and size of photos, don’t know what’s gone wrong, having problems viewing forum on safari for some reason hence why I started new thread. >> DB
  8. This Nat geographic story looks at a couple of design students who are making furniture from wood chip impregnated with the mycelium of Fomes fomentarius. http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2017/09/mushroom-fungi-furniture-video-spd/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=Social&utm_content=link_fb20170922news-fungusfurniturevideo&utm_campaign=Content&sf116090384=1 I've often found examples out in the field where the mycelium sticks things together. like these branches which are bonded by a Phellinus species. (Possibly P. ferruginosus) I once left a couple of P. ignarius brackets in flower pot for a few nights (I'm kinda weird that way) and they became bonded together by the mycelium of one of them. looks like like these students might be on to something. .
  9. Seems to be the season for Coriolopsis gallica. This is a tier of brackets on a living Prunus padus street tree in Hackney. It took me a while to get to the ID since I associate Coriolopsis gallica with deadwood and ash. It is also fruiting in nearby Clissold park on a huge ash log. @treeruss
  10. Can anyone tell me what this is? Was at the base of a robinia a few weeks ago, gone now.
  11. Found this on Larch. It's recent as the tree was inspected a few weeks ago. Tree leans and its on the holding root side, doh! Any thoughts please? I was wondering if Griffola frondosa but possibly not frondy enough?
  12. Any ideas guys and gals, found on the root of a Oak in a Park, we have theories but any help appreciated!!
  13. Looking back through some photos from 2014 discovered Orchard Tooth fungus or orchard toothcrust - Sarcodontia crocea. Surpisingly large bracket - about 50cm. On Malus in old orchard. London.
  14. I was removing dead wood from a Pin Oak on my folks' property and noticed several of the branches I was removing had pebble size black splotches along them and this large deep red fungi growing out that looked like dried cranberries and felt like cold flower petals. I took the pictures a couple days after removing the limbs and by then it had turned black and shrunk to a third its size. If it hadn't been for the fungi I'd have laid the ramial wood in piles around the base of the tree to decompose. Instead I dragged the brush farther back into the woods. I'm fairly new to tree work and fungi. Can someone ID the species?
  15. Hi, I'm very new to this forum. Any help on assessing what's wrong with this beech (fagus sylvatica atropunicea) would be greatly appreciated. The first four images: Graft area or repair wood? Or both?
  16. Not fantatic photos here but I found these two small brackets about 50cm up on a mature beech. At first I thought it was an old oyster but it didn't have gills underneath. It was leathery and only about 10cm across each. It almost feels like a frond of dried grifola or meripilus with that fibrous texture, and it has dried well, cocoa brown with white fibres inside - but I am sure its neither of these and Philips doesn't know thus far either. As you can see on pix there is a slight cavity so there may be a small area of dead wood. Any ideas? Thanks Leonie
  17. Can anyone Id this please?
  18. Hi there, Meripilus on red oak ? anyone think different Regards
  19. Hi all, I'm wanting to improve my knowledge of tree diseases, particularly the different types of fungi/rot, as I would like to start thinking about doing a bit of surveying in the future. Can anybody recommend any good books on the subject? Thanks,
  20. Hi Guys, I am at collage studying arboriculture and have recently started doing about pest and disease and am wondering if anyone could recommend me an identification book to carry when working and seeing jobs for both fungi and pest and disease. I realise that a definitive book wont be out there as our understanding is constantly changing but is there an identification book out there worth getting for arb purposes? Cheers Conall
  21. Now I don't usually read the Daily Mail, yeah that's right, someone else saw it, yeah that's right, that's how it happened, yeah.... Just saw this... The disease threatening UK's 80m ash trees after nursery imported infected saplings | Mail Online
  22. Hi all, I run a forest education website which will be fully active by next year: Home - ForestExplorers.co.uk - We have a photo gallery which I am in desperate need of filling with pics! All photos will be uploaded to the gallery on the website and also on our mobile app. We are looking for anything suitable for viewers of all ages. Trees, leaves, fungi, carvings, seeds, wildlife - and so on... All photos will appear with your name if you wish so. Please email any pics to: [email protected] A brief description of each photo would be great. Please pass this message onto anyone who you think can help. No photos will be used for financial gain. And if anyone would like to help with the project in any way, please get in touch, Regards Lee
  23. Hi Guys Pretty sure I know the species but want confirmation from the forum. I'll not put my obvious answer as not to sway the vote. Found at the base of Quercus robur, english / pedunculate oak with tree trunk approx. 22 inch diameter at base height (dbh). Fruited 6-weeks ago and then decomposed to a cheesy mass 1-week ago. Cheers Rich
  24. I was walking was down an alley in west london and I saw what I thought was a turd, but it was stuck to the wall... then I took a closer look, as you do, and I couldn't believe my eyes... are they what I think they are?
  25. Hi All Found this on a Robinia, can someone id it for me please, and will it fall down. The butt of the tree seems solid. Cheers
