So I ran out of time yesterday so went in today to finish up and I never envisaged the amount of grindings. IMG_20190820_164556.jpegIMG_20190820_185424_284.jpegIMG_20190820_174439.jpeg

Looks like poplar, fluffs up to create a pile like that. Especially if you have to chase out roots.

Go on then Ian, What you going to do with all that? lol
I'm planning on ignoring it as it was a freebie favour that someone called in. I expect I'll end up taking the skid steer to load it up and I'll take it in the woods and level it out, or tip it off as a wildlife pile.

Yeah they were 2 white poplar stumps, only had to chase a few out as they had used a digger to rip out the roots in the pitches, shame they didn't rip these out at the same time.

Access was shocking so we had a crane day. The tree had a phone line on one side and I just did light picks because it was easier. The heaviest bit was the stem at only 2.7t (we had 4t at that reach) but 90% were sub 600kgs.

We extended a rooting area of a redwood today. I didn't have much space to play with regarding being able to build the ground level up. So I went for clean sand and washed crushed stone with the idea of the sand being porous but able to be compressed over the rooting area and the a layer of stone to bind the top layer. Not done anything like this before so I'm keen to know if and what I could of done differently should I be asked in the future.
