Is Jake a solid young tree-man who has the potential to become a great tree-man? Absolutely
I think I should add that maybe I saw what could look like armillaria but definitely it was brown cubical rot, so likely sherwnzii (however you spell dudes name in Latin) aka cow pie fungiWell there you go, the owners of the site basically told you @Daniel to shut up and stick your head in the corner.
As for Jake and the crew with what is on video, they are certainly very capable at what they do. However the quality of work, and ego do leave quite a bit lacking. I still cannot get over the “ armillaria laminated” diagnosis as if it were the same thing, telling the client they have to remove all their fir trees... novice in my book.
It’s s freakin dead language, I can pronounce it however I like, I don’t have the same excuse with English (or do I?). However, I always make auto correct cry...Fay-o-lus sh-why-nits-e-i, eye bee-leev.
