Hello Ben

Thanks for you comments. My visit to the woodland was only brief and perhaps 
another visit on my own may come up with some obvious indications.
I only mentioned allelopathy as it was the only reason I could think of.

Hi Phillip,

Some years ago I did quite a lot of research into Turkey oak and I don't 
recall any mention of allelopathy, but I understand that they are less 
susceptible to powdery mildew (Ayres 1976).

I agree that Turkey oak appears to be doing much better than our native oaks, 
and it may be that a combination of factors are causing the changes that we 
can see. For whatever reason, Turkey oak seems to have a competitive 
advantage over native British oaks because it is able to establish and 
reproduce more quickly when suitable opportunities arise. I think that this 
is a promising subject for future research.

Over the weekend i visited an old freind on the edge of the new forest. 
Walking round his small wood mainly Scots pine and oak. He pointed out dead 
English Oak next to vigourous Turkey Oaks. My knowledge may be lacking but  
do Turkish have that affect on our natives? I seem to remember discussing 
Alleopathy when i was at Merrist Wood but maybe another reason.
Any thoughts?

Kind regards
Phillip Ellis
