What fungi can do!

So this is a Beech tree. This is a Beech tree that is not in good condition. This is a Beech tree that has a lot of dysfunctional wood because of a fungi. The fungi involved in this instance is a Ganoderma australe. This fungi will selectively delignify the wood, leaving the tree with only tensile strength to keep it up right. so effectively when the wind blows and the tree wants to twist…. well thats when things start going wrong!!

This tree had around 10-15% sound wood remaining. In an ideal world, to prevent removal we would hope for 30-35% sound wood.

If you spot fungi in or around your tree, call an expert (us at Evoke) to come and have a look. it may just save your insurance premium from hitting the roof!

  • 5 star review  Very pleased with the work carried out. Apple tree and four cypress trees reduced . The two guys that completed the work were polite and very helpful. Cleared away all cuttings and were very tidy. Would definitely use again and recommend to others.

  • 5 star review  Had my two oak trees and two beech trees cut back as well as some trees/hedging. The Evoke team did a great job - they were professional, polite and friendly. Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  Evoke Tree Services came to our rescue after a bunch of cowboys ‘rode into town’ to remove our back garden hedge and left the stumps in saying that wasn’t part of the deal. I should have spotted their spurs! Evoke was recommended to us, and they were in and out within the hour, everything done and dusted. Thank you Evoke for first class service. The old saying still stands: ‘Pay cheap, pay twice.’ We know where to go next time. 👍

  • 5 star review  Amazing service from Evoke from start to finish! We had a number of very large and unmanageable laurel bushes growing in the garden which required a significant amount of work done to them to bring them back to a nice size. The work was completed promptly and to a fantastic standard; highly recommended!

  • 5 star review  Would highly recommend this company. They did a great job of tidying my overgrown jungle of a garden. Taking down 5 trees, pruning remaining shrubs and generally tidying up. All of the waste had to come out via my flat and communal corridor and they did so with extreme care and tidied it all up beautifully. A very professional job. They are also very friendly and polite too.
