  8. Hi people my customer has a slight dilemma and we don't know where.to take the situation. The customer has recently bought.the property ( ex council/ housing association) house they bought it.outright so none right to buy or morgage the property belongs to them outright There is a clause in the deeds of the the house stating.thay no Tree shall be removed without prior permission from the cheif executive. My question is who is that? The house had. No TPO not in conservation so no issues there There is no morgage. The HA have signed it.over to.my customer so I assume they have no say in it as legally the house is not there's anymore do they have to seek permission from themselves to chop their tree's down ?

  21. Your £12 will be well spent after using the chain to dismantel a hawthorn tree crown reduced a Chery reduce a holly tree and take down two for trees chain is well up there with the sthil chains 9/10 in my opinion and the price is unbeatable haven't needed to sharpen just yet but every thing elce is spot on so peel back the cob webs release the moths and find the £12 lol
  22. Well mine arrived this morning ordered 2 for the husky 240 and one for the 200t they sent me 2 of each so a free chain is always a good start put one one on the 200t and gave it a quick test in the back garden I see what people mean about it been graby but from what I have used so far a good chain at an excellent price will post a proper review once I have had it up a tree and used it all day dismantling fingers crossed they are good
