    The Importance Of Proper Pruning Of Trees

    Great article ... only two things to add - always think safety before pruning anything. And always take you time. I see so many branches being hacked off with impatience so leave long term damage.

    Bay Tree

    I bought one and had it for years and kept it in a big pot. When we had a really bad winter a few years ago it died :cry3: I have often thought about buying another one but they can be expensive.

    Removed Ivy from tree

    You'll probably find the ivy starts to grow again at the base. If it does, spray it with glyphosate and if a thick 'branch' bore a hole and inject glyphosate.

    I am Groot........

    Yep I know what those are and they were disposed of. Just the other strange little clusters I'm curious about. I'll google fungus and lichen as I hadn't thought of those.

    That certainly looks like one of the Abies family @SteveQ , and we might get a better idea when it produces some cones. Maybe then you could post another photo?

    What's this small tree and will it stay compact?

    The tree in question is without doubt good ol Euonymus japonicus :)It won't get much bigger and is easily maintained with judicious pruning.
