Have a client who has several spruce trees along the back of his garden boundary. There are thousands of small aphids across the spruce trees and also the adjacent fence. Don't have a picture of them yet however the Aphids are approx 5mm in size / have a tear shaped body and have 6 legs. I've never seen such an infestation of aphids before. does anyone have any ideas or encountered such an issue. I will post some pictures tomorrow. Any help greatly appreciated
Hello all Arb Talkers! With the increased numbers of new pest and diseases affecting our trees (both urban and woodlands) there is on going need for biosecurity practice to become adopted as standard practice throughout the Forestry and Arboricultural industries. In order to make this practical and proportionate we need to hear from all those that work in these industries; whether you are the Managing director of a large firm or a groundy working for a small team we want to hear what your thoughts are: The Forestry Commission have put together a short email survey - to find out what you think about biosecurity currently, how aware you are of the current guidance, and how you feel it does, or should, impact on your daily work. Do you have ten minutes to spare to complete the survey? It will help steer us on how best to communicate around the issue of biosecurity, and let us know what you need to follow biosecurity guidance more fully in the future. It’s an online survey, and can be completed anonymously here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/FCbiosecurity
I brought 'The climbers companion' and its a really good read but it only has climbing techniques. Can anyone help me with any decent books on perhaps chainsaw and cutting techniques side of things...or the tree health, growth and disease side of things...cheers by the way ive looked at modern arboriculture and its too expensive so that's out of the picture
