    What's this on cedar?

    One of the big companies did have a look but I wasn’t really in the loop at that stage, I think honey fungus was mentioned but the focus was more on other things by the time I was back at the site.

    Plane problems

    A little update here, two of the infected trees seem to be recovering and one was removed. I don’t think we got any further with the diagnosis.

    Oxdale se 400 log splitter

    We have the rt 400 and some how the splitting head/wedge whatever you call it got bent, not sure how but it either happened by twisting/slipping or someone bent it by trying to knock a lump off that got wedged on, as peasgood said as long as you pick your spot it should deal with most rings but I’d avoid seasoned eucy if I were you. One problem we did have was that almost every hydraulic connection worked loose over the first winter so I’d give everything a tweak before you start if you do get one.

    Does anyone hire out things to collect chip and logs

    Our local green waste place will drop a 30 yard (I think) locally for £250 for any green waste.

    I hate it when.......

    Part of the problem is that many road users don’t realise that if you’re going over 18mph you’re supposed to use the roads and not cycle paths. Cycle paths are more for kids and slower riders.
