If you do see Pete this week, could you share this image with him, I spoke briefly with him about how the foresters in the Basque cover their fresh (pollard) cuts with moss matts. He said he hadn't heard of it before and seemed quite intrigued.

Certainly. No problem.

I'm waiting for the dieback thread to coalesce with the biomass/firewood thread - surely in a few years there is going to be tons of ash felled all over the country which could drive the wholesale price down again?

It's already happening Dan bar the dropping price. Over the last year, most of what we able to get is ash. Prior to this ash has been as rare as hens teeth. Think you have to conclude many woodland owners are not waiting around to see their crops die.

I can't see the prices dropping. Even with the deluge of ash that'll come to market, demand will always hugely outstrip supply.
