Simon and Jasper

I am also monitoring one on cedar and have been for a few years now.

Also found one on a holm oak one year.  Drilling showed nothing and it has 
not been seen since.


Sincerely Tom

I've dealt with one on a Scots pine a long time ago but can't find the 
report.

The only other was on a cedar, identified from a photo.  Test drilling 
in Feb 2014 found localised decvay that was evidently being 
compartmentalised fairly well and had not increased appreciably by 
April 2019.  The tree had well developed buttresses and good vitality 
and, as far as I know, is still there.
