    "Clean Air Strategy" today we find out.

    Yes, I am 74 but fairly fit. I have recently planted quite a few trees. Unfortunately I have to have around 40 felled soon because they are leaning over the highway. The Forestry Commission has asked me to replant the area with Hazel which will be done in the autumn

    I am doing my bit, I have planted many more trees in my wood than I have cut down, I agree with you not many woodlands are replanting, certainly not round here

    What's everyone's favourite chopping axe?

    I use the x27 for smallish logs and the Ochsenkopf big-ox splitting maul for anything that won’t split easy. The big ox is a bit heavy so would not want to use it all day

    Squirrel Control

    I dont think they are anymore Stubby but not sure. They cause loads of damage when they geg into houses. They caused two house fires near me last year, by biting through cables in the roof space. 50 were caught in the roofspace of a local hotel last year, and 27 have just been caught in my mates roof. Horrible things

    Does anyone have glis glis (edible doormouse) in their woods. They are a big problem around my area

    Whats this wood?

    I was wondering if it is pop or lime. I had some lime last year and tried it on the log burner, but what a strong nasty smell it gave off. Burnt the rest in the woodland in the end
