  6. Dont know about Essex but Chippertech (Stowmarket) or Elite in Ipswich but they are pricey. Both do towable and tracked. Chippertech best bet
  7. you been reading my mail ha ha. i think its all interresting hope you are well

  8. Yes certainly a good job done! Could'nt of got a better day if we tried with the weather, a bit of a contrast with today. All credit to the crane operator & the banksman too both done a really good job, could'nt believe how quickly it was all done. Obviously the ground crew were awesomes but that goes without saying:001_cool:. As the timber & brash was processed the next piece was on its way down! very quick job. The crane i believe was 80ton & but at the furthest point on the job it could lift 4ton. considering the size of that last piece was 2.4ton, 4ton must be a hell of a size.
  9. I was asked to look at a group of Hornbeams the other day that have been in the ground for 2 years, about 6 years old & on 3 of them their leaves have started to turn yellow. When it rains hard the ground becomes water logged due to poor drainage & can hang around for a couple of days before disappearing. The soil is a dense clay & i feel that there is'nt enough nutrients in it. I would like to know anyones thoughts to whether it is a lack of nutrients or water causing suffercation of the roots or both. Any ideas/thoughts would be welcomed:icon14:
  10. Your right Dave i should of known, dont beat me to hard! I do feel a bit of a tit especially when i was down at Kew a month ago and we were told about the Gingko so god only knows what i was thinking:011:. I'll blame the couple of bottles of stella that i had:001_smile: Anyway what age is it then steve?
  11. In my defence I did say I could be wrong! only a few years out!
  12. I could be wrong but were'nt they introduced here in the 20's? if so I reckon around 85 - 90 years
  13. Absolutely 100% superb! Great watching you guys work, best vid i've seen. Great editing & good choice of music too!
