  2. Hi Koysii. In your position I'd cover that area in cardboard and bury it within the next couple of months in 6" of woodchip. The ground would be out of action for the winter but the insulation should keep the roots trying to send shoots to the light, failing and exhausting themselves. You need the Tip Site Directory on here to register for chip, logs etc. I hope you win with the weeds!

    Half way up a bank that’s to soft to drive up to the bottom 🤯 it’s on the Isle of Wight, I would guess it’s not going to be worth the cost of the boat to get it off this rock. 🤔
  4. We will have 5 attic loaded of poplar is there any market for them at the moment
  5. Today
  6. Just joined the site and in need of some advice regarding weeds. I have a fairly large garden and have been de-weeding constantly for a year now. I have used a hoe to level off as best as i can and would like to throw some bark mulch on top to suppress the weeds hopefully. The weeded area is about 15 meters by 6 meters. If i level off and hoe the weeds more and remove as many roots as possible. Will bark mulch help and the tip loads which are provided from tree surgeons do they have potential weed seeds present? How dense should the layer of mulch be? How many loads would I need to cover the whole area. I would prefer not to use plastic weed fabric. Im from the north west UK and will have a look later on this week to see how i can acquire some loads of bark mulch from this site :D

  8. Effective asthma treatment requires routinely tracking symptoms and measuring how well your lungs are working. Write down your symptoms in an asthma diary each day. Recording symptoms can help you recognize when you need to make treatment adjustments according to your asthma action plan. Airway inflammation is treated by prescription medications such as montelukast (Singulair), zafirlukast (Accolate), and inhaled corticosteroids (steroids). Asthmatic patients and their physicians may select from a wide variety of prescription medications.

  13. Hi Everyone, So I have an Ash tree that is looking like a bit of a sick puppy and I wanted a little bit of input from guys who have experience with Chalara. The tree itself is in West Dorset and there doesn't appear to be any cases registered anywhere close. The property has a good 2 figure sum of ash trees on it and this seems to be the only one suffering in any way. The tree overall looks poor, it's not thriving at all with a lot of dead/dying limbs. There is new growth from lower sections of the main trunk and the only growth that is green is from new/fresh branches, there are cankers and most of the growth seems to be dying. I can't see any symptoms of die back, no black splotches on leaves, no lens shaped lesions etc. The leaf litter is pretty normal, no black twigs etc. The rest of the Ash trees on the property are thriving, full crowns, no dead limbs (the next large ash tree being around 20m from this one. What do people make of it? I'm at a bit of a loss of what to do with it seeing as the chances of it having ash die back are very small. It sure isn't healthy though. What would you do?
  14. Hey, I am looking for a place to offload a large amount of logs in Swindon. Anyone got any connections or places to do so? Cheers
  15. Actually I have a lot of Makita tools, grinders, circular saws, SDS drlls etc.. all are very good but I have a Makita orbital sander and it's absolute crap.
  16. yes it might be worth a try coils are cheap it has to be SOMETHING right?
  17. been using Husky 435s for years for hedge laying but the last couple have not been so good so just bought this from Shavey (on here)and so far its a great little saw far better than the 435
  18. I'm by no means an expert but I did have saw once that has a similar issue. Turned out replacing the coil fixed it. It seemed that there was a break in the lead that tested fine when the plug was out, but wasn't connecting right when on the plug. Might be worth a go.
  19. actually I lie. I have 50:1 in it now with ordinary 2 stroke. I used to run it also on 50:1 with the husky oill too - as per instructions. The destruction manual says drop to 33:1 if you use regular 2 stroke so I could do that but I know that isn't enough to do this to it.
  20. Thanks Stubby. The outboard is just mised with regular 2 stroke at 50:1. I did have 40:1 in it before with the expensive husqvarna oil. I think it might be enough to make it grumble but not kill it completely. My current guesses are either the impulse tubeway still isn't holding pressure - in fact I am surprised that it's a pipe of 3 or 4 bits of metal that seem to be just 'pressed togther' seems plenty of scope to go wrong. OR the aftermarket card is also sh*te and I've got 2 carbs on the blink unlikely but possible.... Husqvarna you are going down in my opinions very fast.
  21. Why would he do that - yr just gonna bang on forever abt it regardless. K
  22. Bracken cleared for 140,000 tree-planting project WWW.BBC.CO.UK Volunteers want to see native trees blossom on the Black Mountains. Bloody good effort lads.. k
  23. Hi thanks yeah I did it yesterday worked a real treat I will take some photos on friday as I am not there till then
  24. The only thing that stood out for me was number 6 . Out board mix is different . Something to do with the oil being different because of the water cooling on an out board . I would not use out board mix in a chainsaw . Other than that a very comprehensive test . I would have sent it to spud by no 8sih ! ☺️
