  1. Hedge? I was talking about 100ft climbing kind of stuff, will do hedge, 20ft trees until I'm 70,
  2. 51 yr old, today might be my last climb. Just to painful now after 30yrs. Have damaged knees and ankles over the years which haven't helped.
  3. Your only other option is buy a small field and plant your self. I bought 2 acres 5 yr ago, planted pines,willow, eucalyptus etc, now are all 15ft plus in height.
  4. Water, vinegar, salt and washing up liquid. Safe to animals and environment. The best weed killer I've ever used, really it does work a treat.
  5. I would stay small scale, I went bigger, busy with lots of contracts but it just meant I had no time for self or family at all. Quoting and meetings all the time Paid more tax, wages and expenses. At the end of day was earning not really much more. Well enough to make it worth it. Now I'm back to a 2,, 3 man team, lots of domestic, schools, parish council stuff. Earn well, have more time, less stress. ,, no 3 vehicles at a yard somewhere. Happy days
  6. Paint on flu. Was originally stainless but now sprayed black, maybe with wrong paint?
  7. Say what I like prick. That's the point of a forum
  8. What's the point of chippers???? What a stupid question. Idiot.
  9. Some tree species like sycamore, pine and maple etc, seem to attract mold anyway during the drying period.
  10. What's everyone talking about,,, covid???? It's all normal here. ? Don't know what all the fuss about.
