    Meetings with remarkable trees, the Arbtalk version

    came across a few old Oak the other day possibly 100 or so acres of incredible trees to the west of Blenheim Palace, fairly sure there is public foot path adjacent to the wood, hope to return to see and explore more

    PTO chipper recommendations

    What’s the chip quality like? as with most disc chippers with sharp blades and anvils, and tolerances are kept as per manufacturers spec a reasonable chip is produced, however if blunt will produce non granular stringy and slabs of wood but will keep going and still chip, I would say will chip to get rid of produce rather than a say g30 spec chip, John I am concerned if this brash is from extraction rack that it may be dirty and cause problems trying to chip it, is there opportunity to find a market for it? can you extract and stack it for collection/ chipping for biomass, I hear some of the suppliers of wood chip are getting quite keen to source woody material certainly worth a few phone calls
