  1. the lack of saw strop, chaps & harness make it look like it is outside the UK.
  2. 2nd that about not being that experienced - however if you loiter around all day taking pics of climbers, then I am sure that most of us could look less than professional from the right angle.

    Chainsaw Use In Arboriculture

    Currently no. The battery technology is not advanced enough to produce a commercial saw equivalent to anything over 50cc yet.

    Arb Kitten

    Cat's should always be in pairs. That way, when fattened & skinned they make a pair of slippers not just one. They need a purpose in life 👍

    Margaret Thatcher.

    Her introduction of neoliberal politics has destroyed our country. It has destroyed our primary manufacturing & dismantled and sold off everything else. Her legacy is not a positive one for the UK

    How Bad?

    Probably still carry more chip than a transit legally

    Accompaniment to white and black pudding

    Skinny slices of sourdough, toasted & buttered with some full strength English mustard is awesome with black pudding

    If you feel like that then you have probably been voting for the wrong party. Your going to tell me that Tony Blair was a real representation of the party next! And if you mean by IRA apologist (sourced from the Daily Fail no doubt)a dislike for any individual that entered into a dialogue that tried to end a war. Fair enough.

    Facebook video. Graphic accident

    I use ratchet straps in exceptional circumstances and they do help (I have even used chain in some occasions). Usually on defective trees or those that I am going to pull hard and fast I.e. With a big forestry winch. It is not something I do on a run of the mill tree like the one in the original post. The cutting on the first video was a fail - he was not allowed to cut the tree up before it was pulled - they created that split by pre loading.
