thanks,it seems to tick all the boxes for it.

pity it turns the inside of the tree to mush as it is a rather handsome beast

Pity it causes rot in the tree. Depending on what the tree is, can you take cuttings and graft them onto a suitable root stock before it falls or dies?

there are about 15 more of the same type(newton superb from 2 id's)some of which are very healthy,i recon we take the scions from the best specimens.

grafting is planned,it might even make a few bob Wink
