sORRY BUT ONE TINY PIC IS NOT ALWAYS ENOUGH TO GIVE A CORRECT ID.

Connifer Trees!

Posted: 10/11/2017 at 22:26

Hire of a shredder can be very expensive even just for a day.


Once shredded  the tree will yield just a tiny amount of chipped material.


It will need to be left to rot down before using as a mulch.


Quote RHS......


"Mulches from conifer trees and shrubs


Fresh conifer materials are more likely than broadleaf woody waste to contain phytotoxic compounds e.g. tannins, which can reduce germination and harm young plants. Again, this is unlikely to be an issue for mature plants, but chipped and shredded conifer mulches should be aged before use around establishing plants."

Cutting it down will be done really  quickly.


The hardest part is not going to be cutting the tree down but getting rid of all the branches.


Hopefully you are near to a council recycling centre and can take a few branches at a time in the boot of your car to get rid of them.

Hmm!


This tree is rather hard to give verbal  id clues.


It is a rather sparce leafed tree...open ..delicate looking.


We had one but it was too young to have catkins etc.


It is a tree that is very happy in damp ground.


Maybe you could look round the larger better garden centres to see if they have one for sale...and compare to your tree.

Really need more info.


It is very hard to id a tree from a single leaf.


What shape is it...tall and thin or wide spreading?


Is it a tree that  is pendula/weeps?


What are the buds like?


Are the leaves alternate or opposite?


Has it had any flowers?


Does it have any seeds/fruits?


Does it have any autumn colour?


etc etc.


This is just a suggestion Alnus glutinosa imperialis.
