    Red fungi.

    Not my pics. My thought is G. resinaceum but may be well off the mark.

  5. I guess it will depend on amenity. For example, if it's a coppice with standards type woodland and the coppice was cut down, then as long as it regrows, there will be little, if any, loss of long-term amenity/change in the character of the woodland. However, if the standards were cut down there would be a loss of amenity/change in character of the woodland. The offence is one of destruction, and destruction isn't just about total death/removal of the tree, it's also about loss of amenity. The stump and regrowth may technically be protected but would you have TPO'd it, has it lost it's amenity value. Is the coppice regrowth a standard tree.

    Nice, worth 26 minutes of my time, admittedly Serbia v Switzerland is not too absorbing. re. The cedar stump from long ago, reminded me of this photo I have on my wall. Thanks for posting.

    Makita recall

    Anyone know anything about a recall on makita 6100 and 7900 saws? Dealer close to me mentioned he had to send some back, some he had sold and a couple of new ones off the shelf. He couldn't remember exactly what it was for, but thought it was brake related.

    Cherry picker and a crane save so much work, would have been rubbish doing that on spikes and rigging it all down

    Potential landowner liability for 'anonymous' felling in CA

    Is there actually a duty to replant if the trees coppice? Another thread, on another forum , concludes that if a TPO tree is felled and then coppices, the new stems are then protected.

    How to grow my business, how did you grow yours?

    My fault on the poorly worded question, it should have read. How much money would a person have to take from a business per year for it to be considered "real money"?

    I’m andrew as well[emoji4] Well, in no hurry and as the branches are off no more sap on the cars and washing line. I might leave it. But with no leaves the sap will stop flowing?

    Aren’t woodies a bit big for them? One once pinched a collared dove I had shot when it landed in the stubble

    MS 362 issue

    What oil did you get
  25. openspaceman


    There seem to be a preponderance of we Andrews on this forum This is much as I was saying, not only is there less sugar in the sap in winter there is also less sap so whilst you want to dry the wood as quickly as possible you want to do it at a rate that the moisture is moving out of the wood to the surface, in summer this happens too fast in the absence of humidity control.

    Tail of the cow, it's the way the stain looks sh*tty as it runs up the end grain, phrase was taught to me by the veneer buyer I used to fell for
