The silver birch (on verge on border between nos 22 and 23 The Tyning) looks to have some dead/dying branches and needs attention. It is the first mature tree on the right hand side of The Tyning as you come from Widcombe Hill. It’s been happening slowly over last few years. We hope it can be saved. I think it might be honey fungus as it had fungus like this around base of tree in the autumn.
