  3. Woody Paul - Ive found the 935i an amazing machine, its just so over engineered for the job which is what we need in this game. Its all I have used for 18 years, so don't know any different to be honest. I'm not sure how much its worth, but would consider a decent offer for it ....
  4. I am thinking of selling my 7.5t lorry and chipper as the yard I keep them in is being built on in London and I can't find a yard locally anymore as they have all been built on. The lorry is 05 Plate and done 74,000 km and has particulate filter fitted but will not meet the new emission regs in London is 2021. The chipper had a reconditioned perkins engine in 2008 and a little bit of work last year but apart from that its a great machine. Its a great combination having both together and I'm wondering where would be the best place to sell them ? I am now doing smaller tree work generally and it seems ridiculous to turn up with this rig to prune a few apple trees ! Happy to advertise on here is people think its worth it ? Hamish 07971055438
  5. I was doing a quote for the neighbour when I looked over and saw this in the neighbours garden. They we not in, but as always with this situation its hard to give straight advise without sounding like you are wanting more work !
  6. I used to see this at our farm in Wales, once turned back up they loose the gas and sort themselves out. I've done it a few times, poor animals look wider than they are tall with all that gas in them. Good skills.

  9. Thank you Jesse, you can't blame everything on the weather then ! Best wishes
  10. Over the last year I seem to be seeing a lot of cherry trees that have died or are in the process of dying. I know our local authority (Southwark) are pollarding a lot of trees because of an insurance perspective, and aggressively pruning some old cherry trees which have now died, has anyone else noticed that cherry trees are suffering (I think maybe not just because of the way they have been pruned) ? On another note, I noticed yesterday that a clients cherry tree has leaf curl on the extremities of every branch. I presume it was because of a lack of water, is this correct ? Help much appreciated.
  11. I work in South London, which has a clay sub soil. This Saturday I have seen 2 Kumquat trees with the same symptoms and also have seen one a month ago which was identical. The trees are thinning in their leaf canopy by about 20%, there are brown spots developing on the leaves and also holes too, possibly subsequent to the brown spots. I have attached some photos below. Has anyone come across this before ? I was thinking it might be due to long periods of dry and then long periods of wet weather, combined with a few very cold winters, but thats all a bit vague ! Thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for your time
  12. One of my clients has a Loquat tree in their garden in London. (Clay soils). Over the last three years the leaves have started to get brown spots and the leaf canopy is very thin. Is there anything the client can do to save the tree ? Any thoughts appreciated. Best wishes Hamish
  13. Thank you RobArb and Kev7937. Great skills. Have a great weekend and festive fun and frolics if you get a chance ! Hamish
  14. Sorry to disappoint you folk, but it is the same tree. Any other thoughts, I thought it might be a little rare as I have never seen a fern and other leaf on same tree before ....
