  1. I made it to page 27 and couldn't do any more.... So I'm, here. Great thread, just a little too long for one night's read... ;-)
  2. Yes, get an email over to Duncan, he'd love to see it. And I'm sure there may well be need for a new type and term for this particular natural brace. Supporting wood all ways looks like muscle to me and it's a good analogy for explaining to a layman. It's especially amplified on the arm like braces we see on this Beech. Great stuff! :-)
  3. What's happened to the amazing Beech tree in the original post?
  4. Have you been back to the tree to see if it's survived since you carried out the work?
  5. There's nothing in finer detail about the calculations of the '6 month' period: "Is there a time limit for confirming Orders? Authorities can only confirm an Order within a 6 month period beginning with the date on which the Order was made. If this deadline is missed and an authority still considers protection necessary it will have to make a new Order."

  6. Interesting thread. I don't think you're being pedantic Gary, but thorough, which shows integrity and sound professional investigation. In reference to calculation; are weekends, holidays etc. included or excluded in the 6 months/168 days?
  7. If needed, binoculars can help assess high anchor points. And, if I dare say, a drone. :-)
  8. Well, I turned up 454 pages too late it seems. But I can go back, slowly. :-)
