Ellie's tree

Postby Duncan » Tue Jun 29, 2010 12:27 pm

So I was visiting Ellie's tree on Arthur's seat (I think it's a maple of some sort) and it isn't looking very well. It has hard white raised spots on the bark, and the leaves are looking a bit yellow and curled rather than lush green.

Anyone here with any expertise on such things?

Is it a serious problem? What can be done about it?

Maybe it could work? But it will be a kaleidoscopic blend of mysterious shadows and rainbow hued-dreams seen through compassionate tears.

Yeah, I thought it was a silver birch, but the leaves don't look at all like birch to me, unless the Swedish one is really different. I have tried googling but didn't find anything useful.

Ah, just found a picture, the Swedish ones do indeed have quite different 'cut' leaves.
