I’m listening – Tree inspections

I am used to reading trees, to figure out what condition they are in so I can make top quality recommendations to my clients.

But this tree has epitimised the analogy I use about tuning in and really using my senses to look at trees, as this one appears to be listening to me!

The ear like growths are actually from a fungi called Jelly Ear and as the name says, they look just like a set of ears. They are found in dead wood, but this tree wasn’t completely dead yet!

If you can think of a better caption, I’d love to read it!
