    Short answer....No
  14. A few questions about logs!

    I usually convert my logs and split my wood out in the wood if access is good. The advantage being that all the sawdust, flaked bark and shards are left in the wood for recycling and the clean split logs are ready to stack at home and will season quicker than if left lying around unsplit. I use a gransfors splitting axe and a unbranded maul for splitting the rounds and a cheap (probably chinese) hatchet for kindling. For splitting I use either the stump or a log from the butt. I dont bother with tyres or sawing horses as the logs are converted in the wood.
  15. Making the news today....

    Anyone else hear Jeremy Vine today talking aboot the trees felled in Melksham? It also made the BBC News.Britain in Bloom: Melksham trees felled day before judging - BBC News A councillor on the Jeremy Vine show named and shamed the contractor. Apparently they did not stop when first asked to do so and many of the volunteers think they have scuppered any chances they may have had. Would be good to hear their side of the storey if any of them are on here.
