    Felling of 15 trees with awkward access in Devon

    Whereabouts are you? Postcode would be useful. Could come and have a look if I'm passing!

    Digging / pulling out large rhododendrons?

    We've successfully controlled large areas of rhody by hand cutting, then stump treatment immediately (within 5 mins)each cutter has a small hand held sprayer with 10% glyphosate. Simples.

    Wildlife Ranger applications

    Whereabouts in the country are you? I have similar work available, for the right person, in Devon.

    CUMBRIA-looking for work

    If you were down in Devon, I'd snap you up!
  5. I'm looking for a hand for a couple of days, conifer planting a clearfell site next week. Previous experience desirable. Piece rate work, but should be able to make £100/day if reasonably able, and if good/quick, £150. Cheers PM me for more details if you are interested.

    Advice on woodland planting

    It'll be a good size at 40 years. Gets really fluted as it ages, and can be a pain to fell, but I expect you know that already! Such a useful timber.

    Felling licenses?

    If you decide to go for a licence, it's currently taking around 6 weeks down here in the SW, as long as you've got all the rpa paperwork in order.

    Felling licenses?

    It's very unlikely that you will get hassle from the FC for felling such a modest amount. The legal amount is 5m3 per quarter per holding, although if it's being sold, it's only 2m3. Above this amount, you'll need a licence.

    Purchasing 25 acre oak stand in France

    Yup. It's been successfully coppiced for 100's of years. Charcoal and tannin were popular uses.

    Clinometer?

    The clinometer app on my phone gives excellent results.

    Hand cutting hardwood. How much can we cut in a day?

    Yup, got some good guys on board. It's in Devon.

    Red Cedar - Worth Felling?

    Nope. That's not worth anything. I'll come and pick it for you if you like! [emoji1]
