  1. App not updating / not available

    It's working fine on the regular Tapatalk app on iOS now. Thanks
  2. Testers wanted

    Will it still be available on Tapatalk?
  3. Woodland - definition?

    Although the NFI only includes woodland of 0.5ha and up, it also makes reference to "smaller woods" between 0.1 and 0.5ha...
  4. I'm with Stubby on either of his recommendations: a 100% reduction or leave well alone. If the client doesn't have a particular need to meet, then you're unlikely to satisfy them. If you muck around with the trees they aren't going to look good, and it will be your fault.
  5. Spam on chrome through Arbtalk

    That's the only thing I can think of, but as far as I know it would need ads to be using Flash. Which I don't think any of them are. There may be other ways I guess, but it's not something I know very much about.
  6. Spam on chrome through Arbtalk

    That link is just to a single file (this thread). If you run it for the whole site it still comes up with the warning: https://virustotal.com/en/url/d0a522331409c51867e0d0ec447fbf8bfc67eff91074a3a287a1fe3961b61bb7/analysis/1494369001/
  7. Spam on chrome through Arbtalk

    It doesn't appear to be browser specific. I had it happen on Firefox, and people have reported it with a number of other browsers.
  8. Ash are late

    There's an interesting article about it here: http://www.field-studies-council.org/news/ash-before-oak-we’re-in-for-a-soak,-oak-before-ash-we’re-in-for-a-splash.aspx
  9. Spam on chrome through Arbtalk

    I had it today. The first time I've logged into Arbtalk via the web site in ages (I normally use Tapatalk) and it came up after about a minute
  10. husqvarna spares

    Give F R Jones a call. They don't list spares on their web site, but they hold a good range in stock and can get most other bits in a day or two.
  11. Thinings value

    He'll make plenty on it. He's on a day rate and is going to be there until Christmas
  12. Compact tractor & pto

    Here you go: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/152431897121 Looks interesting!
  13. Burning

    My current favourite method is to use plenty of pallet wood to get your fire started, then don't overload it. It can still take a couple of hours to get hot enough to keep up though. Wherever possible embers from yesterday's fire are a massive head start. I've found that using a blower isn't as much help as I thought it would be. It's sometimes useful, but can make the inside of a fire burn down very quickly without catching the rest of the brash. When the odds are against you a propane magic wand really speeds things up, but it is a bit extravagant
  14. First decent felling job info required

    Why are you putting signs out? If you're going to drop stuff into the road you'll need more than signs. If you're not going to drop stuff in the road you won't need signs!
  15. First decent felling job info required

    I'd be surprised if the value of the timber merits getting that sort of machine in. Nice to have though!
