    It's the same if your winching, if you return the wire cable you have twice the pull as a straight pull.
  6. Principle 1 (Site grading) Distinguish between (a) individual woods of high conservation value, (b) woodland areas of high conservation value and (c) other wood-lands. Principle 2 (Management priorities) Afford special treatment to special sites and special areas. Principle 3 (Clearance) Minimise clearance. Necessary clearance should avoid sites and areas of high conservation value. Principle 4 (Afforestation) Accept afforestation, except on sites of high nature conservation value, but not so much that non-woodland habitats are reduced to small islands. Principle 5 (Woodland patterns) Develop (or retain) large blocks of connected woodland, whilst maintaining a scatter of small woods between large blocks. Principle 6 (Change) Minimise rates of change within woods. Principle 7 (Stand maturity) Encourage maturity by maintaining long rotations. If this is not possible, retain a scatter of old trees after restocking. Principle 8 (Native species) Encourage native tree species and use non-native species only where necessary. Principle 9 (Diversity) Encourage diversity of (a) structure, (b) tree and shrub species and (c) habitat in so far as this is compatible with other principles. Principle 10 (Regeneration) Encourage restocking by natural regeneration or coppice growth. Principe 11 (Rare species) Take special measures where they are necessary to maintain populations of rare and local species. Principle 12 (Records) Retain records of management. Principle 13 (Natural woodland) Manage a proportion of woods on non-intervention lines in order to restore natural woodland in so far as this is possible. Principle 14 (Traditional management) Maintain traditional management where this is possible and appropriate. Principles 15 ('modern' management) Where traditional management is not possible or appropriate, introduce alternative systems of management which retain or enhance the conservation value of special sites and areas.

    Tom, I haven't looked at the tree smart but what were your reasons for going with that instead of Pear?

  14. need a rough quote please.

    Ah, that's a shame but in the long run having a workshop will probably work out better for you. I thought of you today as I was driving down a lane and saw a garage sale sign which said exotic wood! Are you able to get the train into Reading?
