    Spying on subcontractors

    There's actually only one stubby, and he's most definitely bad!

    Lime timber for milling

    Which are the most marketable J? Been deliberating over a mill purchase for some time but not sure that the species mix in the Wood would warrant one.

    Purchasing 25 acre oak stand in France

    No worries. Not sure of the practicalities of planting a companion tree crop in an orchard. Alder is used as a 'nurse' crop (encouraging other tree species up and straight, commonly Oak). Haven't heard of this technique in orchards. May be counterproductive??

    Have you not met Mrs Difflock?

    Purchasing 25 acre oak stand in France

    That's very true, but if coppiced for firewood they'll outlive an Oak.

    Purchasing 25 acre oak stand in France

    This is good shout if you can get hold of it. Fine around water, grows like hot stink, coppices brilliantly, browse resistant, good for wildlife, decent firewood, lovely mature tree too. Very overlooked species in my humble opinion.

    what's up with swearing?

    And attention. Watch people in any public space on their phones. It is making some people an awful lot of money and robbing us of our ability to connect properly with the real world.

    I spent an age searching for mine. I'd almost given up all hope. Blow me if it wasn't there all along, under me bleedin' foot.

    Think it's a she, but the question remains perfectly valid.

    Some boffin has just calculated the value of Pi to 31.4 trillion decimal places. Apparently it would take 332,000 years to read the number out loud!😄

    We're not really getting anywhere here. Can you spell out what it is you have found? Genuinely interested.

    Ooh! I'm feeling right alpha. Prepare to be minced, Robins!

    And in your view, where should the answers lead?
