I thought this might be the case and it's not a problem in casual contexts, but for formal purposes it is always better to have your work checked by a friend or a professional to get it 100% correct.

By the way, I've never needed to shake a tree, so the survey isn't relevant to me. But good luck with the project!

The first rule of being taken seriously, particularly when asking people for help or money, is to proofread your work. Sorry if that seems a little hard, but careless work finds the quickest way to the waste bin. I was Mr Unpopular with all three of our kids, but by their final years at Uni they could all do a presentable essay.

Anyone know what this is please?

Perhaps it's an Aeonium - broad, rounded leaves rather than smaller pointy ones.
