Dangerous wood chip???

Recommended Posts

I get pretty regular drop offs of woodchip and I’ve always tried to move it/use it the same day or at the very worst the following day.

Firstly because once it starts to break down it always seems heavier and secondly because I didn’t like the smell of the steam - guessing that my eagerness to shift it has done me a favour!

Let's think of Khriss as the hypothetical man on the Clapham omnibus. Based on the post we are discussing, do you think he's capable of analysing data and coming to a reasonable conclusion? 

Probably, cos that is often my job assessing trees. Whereas being judgemental, condescending and making assumptions is obviously yours. K

I know a couple of tree surgeons with an incurable fungal lung disease, presumably from cutting decaying wood frequently.
Strangely my dad also has this, but he was an art teacher🤷🏽‍♂️
This is "Farmers Lung", or a variation of I think. That's a fungal lung disease, in that case from handling mouldy hay in confined spaces
