Hello all arborists, A Sycamore tree that is two-and-a-bit feet in width (I dont know how old this tree is), it seems to be dying. The leaves are spotted black, so am I right in thinking this is Anthracnose? There are many trunks stemming from the main one, typical of Sycamores. All trunks shooting off have bark that seems to have parted (there is not continuous bark going round the trunks). Many branches have fallen off, leaving an unclean cut, these bits of dead wood have holes in them- are these some sort of wood-borers that have gotten into the dead wood? I have cut off all of the new 'suckers', as well as some established ones. The spotted leaves were also touching a birch tree, I have now cut those branches down to stop spread of infection, and they are no longer touching one another. I have also cleared the ground by the bottom trunk of both trees: of dead leaves, twigs and moss etc. I want to save this tree. Is there any way that I can? I am in a woodland by the way in the South East. These spotted leaved Sycamores are spreading, only a few trees remain without these spots. Other trees, such as Birch and Oak are fine. But will they end up getting infected? I am in no way a tree surgeon, just a gardener who likes trees and knows a little bit about them. Thanks.
Small job, but I'm keen to practice filming as much video as possible, for the following reasons; It's good for website SEO The team like to share their exploits with family and friends It's a useful learning aid - spotting mistakes then discussing alternative techniques It can be fun, adding an extra dimension to the job Clients also like to see the videos Like most arbtalkers, I'm learning all the time, and hope to make steady improvements as I pick up tips along the way (in both video and work generally!)
