Bit of boundary clearing and put up new fence this week. 3 old fences removed old tree stumps. Had to get UK power network to upright pole as it got a lean over fence line. 







Tidy job dude .

Bit of a clearance job, chipping, felling, shifting, grinding, all the good stuff in one package.

Managed to fill the 72 cubic foot box which is about 2 cubic metres in 34 minutes with a couple of holdups 

the straight lengths of Sycamore have been drawn up into 70 foot tall branchless stems about ten inches in diameter.  Perfect for the Palax Combi 600. If I could be bothered to grade the timber and had an extra helper and a newly sharpened circular saw I think I could break the 20 minute barrier if everything worked as it should!

Sycamore on the dodgy ( but effective) log deck and oak in the third picture.

Big plane tree, shame it had to come out.
She was a beauty so we pollarded her a lot lower so it can be retained, as much as I hate doing a pollard I had to agree with the recommendations it was the best option for retention.
