  1. It was also filmed for telly. Not quite sure why it didn't make the cut in the past 2 days though 😏
  2. She had a nice chat with him at her boarding school when she did her Duke of Edinburgh awards. Didn't know she'd done that either 😀
  3. My mum dug out this picture. She never mentioned it before
  4. I believe there should have been a full stop in your sentence after I’ll. just saying 😁
  5. Big news today, Prince Phillip has died.
  6. Not a humbolt. That’s an upside log you’re looking at
  7. Yep absolutely sure. Like I said you would have to do a lot wrong, chiefly not cutting the back cut close enough to the hinge and then using something overpowered to force it down. I can't see that combination playing out in this scenario.
  8. Some information here on what a tapered hinge is if you're not familiar. https://allabouttrees.com/wp-content/uploads/guides/climber/Felling_Accuracy.pdf
  9. Do it, all your friends would 😀 It does look pretty straight forward, but if you're not confident its probably worth asking someone else to do it. For the record though, the only way thats going to barber chair is if you only cut half way through from the back and then pull it with a 5ton digger. Wouldn't be wasting time with a bore cut on that tree at all. Just get your gob spot on, and your back cut right. Leylandii wood holds pretty well so leave a tapered hinge on the side away from the house which will give you a margin of error, then get yourself clear and hoik it out with a rope.
  10. How long does it take to grind a stump out with one of those?
  11. If I wasn’t 100% sure you were a troll before I am now. Goodbye
  12. Have used both extensively. If you were new to both I’d have recommended the zigzag as it’s super easy to use whereas the spider jack has a bit of an all or nothing feel to it which takes time to master. Having used both I still prefer the zigzag though
  13. Wood chips with limitations would be for example of you were using the wood chips for livestock and don’t want certain poisonous trees such as yew
