Forestry Winching Training

Could anyone please direct me to some useful reading on winching techniques and training.  I'm looking to purchase a slightly older double drum winch to extract wind blows from around the estate which came down during the winter for chipping my own biomass.  (Valtra with Jake and crane, Heizohack, forwarding trailer).  I have a pretty good idea of where its at for my low output needs but would like a little theoretical night time reading.   Thanks in advance

T540i XP

It could be argued that February 2020 was not the perfect time to be launching a ‘game-changing’ new product, but that being said, Husqvarna’s latest battery saw appears to have hit the stores with only a couple of months delay.   I appreciate that for many, now is not the time to be splashing out on ‘experimental purchases’, but for anyone who has taken the plunge, what are your real-world-experiences of the T540i so far?   It’s a while since I used a petrol 540 (although it

Leaning Oak

Gents   Not sure if I have the right post but I feel very nervous about the Oak whenever I walk past! Haven't been able to assess the root zone but the lean is scary to say the least. Any thoughts?

Tree root question

In my house there was a tree cut down about 4 years ago (pic 3) Just now under the wooden decking in the picture the tiles cracked and were raised. I investigated and found these roots with this mound of growth (pic 1). I was wondering if you know what it is. Its only a meter from my house. Should I be worried? I just cut it out and filled it with sand but is there more I should do. Thank you very much for your time and help Also does anyone know what type of tree this was?

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   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 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

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.
