    the 'todays job' thread

    Veteran half dead oak in the way of a new shed. Planning requirement is to cut it, monolith it and move the cut "cylinder" to a nearby area and crane it into a hole and concrete it in. The moving and craning is down to builder. Today it was checked by an ecologist and then our ARB subbys did the coronet cuts/fracture pruning. Two large lower branches left on to weigh it over when felled and to cushion the fall by breaking. Guy up the tree was great (not me ) Got some nice close ups of his coronet cuts

    Official Log weight charts

    Hi I have some log weight charts based on green oak but not sure where I got them. I could do with some from a recognised source as I have to do a full method statement for some crane works and need to justify my conclusions regarding predicted weights etc for the lifts Does anybody know where I could reference some from etc Thanks
