    Thanks J&B. I think I need you to help me here - what are your consultation rates

    Right - the tree I saw a few days ago had berries, but it's the only rowan/ash tree I have ever seen with berries.

    Wish I wasn't such a forage numpty

    Rowan fruited like mad here this year. Found on an old photo of Rowan for you, no Ash though

    [IMG][/IMG] Study leaf shape - its quite distinctive.

    Thank you, that's really kind of you.

    The tree overlooking my garden is not that, even though I'd been reassured it was Rowan.
    It must be Ash as I haven't seen any leaves like those before.

    Just for interest .....

    My rabbits have had a very large bundle of leaves (no twigs) over the past few days for their breakfast. These have always been Apple, Pear, Ash, Alder and Hazel.

    Every day they have eaten them, based on the following preferences, Alder first, then Ash, Apple, Pear and Hazel. Indeed the Pear and Hazel get left until they can be sure that nothing more tasty to them is going to be delivered.

    It's not the result I would have predicted.
