  10. Hello my fellow tree enthusiasts! I’ve been growing an oak sapling for several months and its leaves are discolored and I’m not sure what the cause is. I think it gets enough water, light and nutrients. Would appreciate some advice if someone can spare some! P.s. where I live a certain bird often hides many acorns all over the city but forgets where they have stored them. Then on rooftops and balconies little oak saplings start growing from plant pots and containers. This sapling comes from such an acorn :)

  14. A big limb split off an oak tree lately over a bridleway near where I live. According to locals and going by the complete lack of responsibility taken for the land either side of the actual bridleway itself, nobody claims ownership of the land and perhaps never has done for the last 70 years. The bridleways people sent someone to clear the tree as it was blocking the pathway but they didn't take much if any of it away. The body of the limb has just been left covered in chippings in the rough land beside the path. How legal would it be for me to take my chainsaw and mill frame and harvest some slabs of timber from it?

    Hardwood logs wanted for firewood. Can split and season myself but foot long rounds would be perfect. Please message first, but can be left at end of driveway next to big Oak tree.
  16. Hello all, I've bought a new solid oak bench meant for indoor use but I want to use it outdoors. As I understand it, if it has been finished with something like danish oil it can be used outside but if varnished it will need to be sanded and finished with something more appropriate for outdoors. Can anyone advise me on how to identify what kind of finish the bench currently has so that I can deal with it appropriately? From a layman's perspective, i'd guess it hasn't been varnished as doesn't have a glossy look, more of a satin. I appreciate that may be an incorrect assumption however. Many thanks in advance, Cathy
  17. Hi, I am currently an undergrad student studying at edgehill university completing my dissertation. The dissertation involves sampling of non-vascular epiphytes and measuring branches to answer the proposed question- Is Quercus cerris a good non-native phorophyte alternative for Quercus robur associated non-vascular epiphytes? this study involves the sampling of 10 trees 4 have already been completed. Unable to climb alone, I am in need of climbers local to edgehill with their own transport who are qualified and willing to assist me in the canopy for data collection. This will be voluntary work. Thanks, Jonathan

  21. Hey, First time slabbing today and I wanted to capture the experience. I absolutely loved the process and look forward to doing more. Feels really rewarding to make use of wood from a tree where the results will be around for years to enjoy. I plan to turn the slabs into tables tops, chunky shelves and chopping boards. Thanks, Dan. 
  22. I have a 300 year old oak tree at the bottom of our garden, which is in excellent health. Our neighbour's insurers have applied to have the tree felled, as they have had a report suggesting that the tree has caused the subsidence, as it has dried out the clay soil. A significant number of local residents objected to the application and the local Council have now issued a preliminary TPO and we are now in the 28 day period where further submissions can be made to the Council, before they decide whether to confirm the TPO. The Council tree officer has valued the tree and will have to convince councillors that the tree is of sufficient value for them to confirm the TPO and risk having to contribute to the costs of alternative solutions. The tree officer fully expects the insurers to object to the TPO. This is all new to me, so can anyone help me with the following questions - 1. HEAVE. The neighbour lives in a semi detached house and the occupants of the other half of the house faced the same issue of cracks when they moved in in 2011. Their insurers ended up concluding that the risk of heave (the oldest houses around the tree were built around 1900, so well after the tree was here) meant that they had to find an alternative to felling the tree. They ended up putting in a 2.5m deep root barrier, which appears to have largely dealt with the subsidence problem. There are 4 1900 era houses close to the tree and the one making the claim is the only one having subsidence issues. None of the houses had any foundations when they were built, but many of the houses, including ours, have had extensions since, which have included some proper foundations. The house making the claim has never had an extension and therefore still does not have any foundations. My question is the Council do not seem to be worried about the risk of heave and the insurer’s report simply says “Heave is not a concern”. Indeed the Council say any submissions we make during the consultation period should address the amenity value of the tree and that there is no point in talking about heave. How can this be right when all of use are concerned about the risk of heave? 2. MEASUREMENT OF MOVEMENT. The monitoring report shows that the largest movement in cracks was 8m, measured between February and August 2020. Is measuring just between a very wet February and a very dry August considered best practice? 3. DRAINAGE INVESTIGATION. The drainage investigation performed seems to have identified some damage to pipework that needs to be repaired. However, the acoustic test to the water main suggested that there weren’t all leaks to that. How is it possible to establish whether any of the leaks involved might be encouraged the root growth from the oak and thereby contributing significantly to the problem? Many thanks in anticipation! Mark
  23. Hello there, I currently have about 150 tons of mixed ash/oak cordwood roadside, and due to have another 300 tons out this season. 2.5m lengths, up to about 18" diameter, straight thinnings ideal for a processor. Location is Monmouth, NP25 5NJ. I can help arrange haulage if necessary. Looking for around £60/ton roadside but negotiable. Ring me on 07963 617 144 to discuss or come and have a look. Many thanks, Aaron
  24. Hi all, this is a young red oak tree that was purchased from a nursery and planted in December 2020. In the last 2 months the leaf buds turned into leaves and the tree looked quite healthy, but over the last week the leaves look like they are dying - curling up, turning brown (see pics). The bark of the tree doesn't appear to have any deformities. Does anyone have any advice on how to manage this? (All leaves are within reach of pruning if required) Thanks in advance!
  25. I have a large oak that fell earlier in the year that requires clearing. The entire canopy has been cleared and some large branches already milled on site and removed, but the guy that was doing it has taken what he wants and left me with a substantial amount of tree. It will need milling on site as it is 1.6m diameter for about 7m. There are large branches which are 0.6m diameter. Anyone interested in clearing it? Near Stevenge, Hertfordshire.
