Any well recommended Tree Surgeons?

Posted: 26/05/2015 at 16:31
Hello Gardeners World.

I have recently re-discovered this forum so I thought I would try and see if anyone can help me out.

I have two fairly un-attractive tree stumps in my garden and I am looking to hire a tree surgeon nearby (around the Horsham or Surrey areas) to remove them without damaging the rest of the garden.

Could anyone recommend someone who will be able to do this for me? Preferably a professional individual or company.

Thanks in advance

Is this Japanese Knotweed?

Hmm yes looks like knotweed to me.. I always use this site to find out:

They have a Japanese knotweed identification page.

Hope this helps

Thank you Rosie that's really helpful, sorry you have had to suffer from it too! The tree is getting pretty ugly, and the fungus is as you describe so maybe it is time to let go.

Sorry Berghill I wasn't able to get a picture but it does match Rosie's description, and thank you Roy that link is very interesting, I am a bit wary of using Armillotox anyway, but I have heard that it works in this case so...

I have looked at RHS about planting a new tree and spoken to someone from Dave Ford Tree Care (its local and they had great stuff on their website for it) just to be safe as I am not confident enough with my own judgement. They are going to come over to do an assessment and perhaps even assist with removing the tree if necessary. We will be replacing it if this happens, but hopefully it can be saved!

Thank you all for your help and advice though everyone!

Thank you Berghill, what would the differences be that I should look for? I'll see if I can locate a camera to upload a picture from too. 

Thanks again,

Hello everyone,

I am new here so just thought I would say hello! 

I can't seem to find any specific threads on a fungi problem I am having with my tree. The symptoms suggest a dreaded honey fungus. The tree seems to have been dying with branches falling off very slowly, and it did seem to get very pale colourings quite early on at the end of summer. With closer inspection I have seen some horrible looking mushrooms. Everything on the websites I have checked suggest so, ( and  (

Does this sound like honey fungi? If so does anybody know the point at which there is no turning back? As it seems it is pretty uncurable from what these websites are saying.

If not what could it be?

Suggestions very warmly welcomed!
