Chainsaw carving help

We run a small charity which has acquired a 16 acre sit in Dunblane. The sit is for the enjoyment of all, its a wild area with a number of new paths, woodland and grasses. A few large trees (mainly beeches) have been cut down, and we would like to create some natural seating for people. We thought each of the local schools could take one on a design project with simple motifs etc, we would then like to hit each carved. After speaking to Mike Dempsey, who recommended this site I was wondering if

P R E D A T O R  2 8 R X - Clutch Replacement

P R E D A T O R  2 8 R X   Today we was called out to a predator 28RX, a very cool machine indeed. It being radio controlled and all, its like a little robot that smashes anything in its way! I mean who needs to build a robot for "Robot Wars", you could just buy one of these right?!   So the problem was the cutting wheel would just stop dead when it went munching in the stump too hard. Predator service guys came out and narrowed the issue down to the clutch b

What should you have at the top of your Tree Shopping List?!

What should you have at the top of your Tree Shopping List?!

What should you have at the top of your Shopping List when you are sourcing trees from any UK nursery?!   Answer:-   Ask the Supplier for a copy of their Biosecurity Policy.  They should be able to give you a unique reference number per tree from which an audit trail will verify from where the tree was sourced and how long it has been in the UK.   Trees imported into the UK should have at least one full year - all the growing seasons - on a UK nursery to ensure any

Help please!

I am in desperate need of wood chippings for the allotment we share.  It is about a mile from Newcastle on Tyne city  centre.  A couple of years ago wood chippings were offered ( by the council I think) so we got rid of the grass paths to make it easier to maintain what with old age and arthritis becoming a problem.  However , since the first delivery we have only had one very small amount of chippings delivered and now all we have is a mess which looks awful.  Can anyone help us, either free or

How's the 500i working out for you

So after all the hype, how are people getting on with the 500i (if you've gone and got one)?   I've had min for a week now and I am super impressed and could easily throw it around all day without fatigue with some brilliant power.  I would say that whilst people have compared it to the 661, it's not as powerful and for me won't replace it but instead compliment it.

dead sycamore

Hello My first post to the world of tree people and tree artists all and I would like your advice please.   I trimmed the sycamore in the photo about June last year just before the drought and it reacted very poorly. Specifically I removed any  dead branches of which there weren't that many of any size. There was a hefty branch that had broken off and I merely removed it without a live cut. I don't think I took off more than about 10-15% in volume. It seemed to react poorly - leav
