Poplar pollard. Neat little zig zag predirect to keep the rigging all slick and in-line. Little things like that set up in the first half hour of the day make rigging for the next six hours of the day nice and boring.

Boring and efficient.


Nice one.

Nice, looks a big job. Can't help wonder which pocket you carried your phone in though...
Is that a hole in the ground beneath the tree?

It was a hole in the tree big enough to lose a fat man through. The top of the trunk was at least the size of a beer garden umbrella. My Hobbs strap needed extending to go round the base.

Maybe slightly easier to see in this one.

Phone was in the chest pocket of a jumper with a zip pocket. I sweated like a bastard all day just to have it to hand.

A couple of recent sites. Been all go lately with surveys so it was nice to spend a couple of days on with the lads.

Unusual spec on that hedge, reduce to 4 mètres.  

Is that pop? (Or hornbeam)

I reckon it’s getting it down to a level that can be maintained with a tractor flail.
