Quite a show!

What a cluster, even packed into the centre - not near your trees I hope.

Well away from me, not that I

Well away from me, not that I have any trees in my small garden. Most of the stumps in the park are left as homes for the fungi - which is good from a mycology point of view. They also have plenty of fallen trunks and branches that are left to enrich the habitat. It is a wonderful place and we feel so lucky having here near the centre of the town.

Lovely to hear.

It does look a nice park in satellite view. Good to hear management techniques are protecting the habitat for biodiversity.
