  1. I imagine the elephants and giraffes could grub out a few trees if let into orchard.....😀
  2. Abit suspicious about motives when that one of the scienctists is a UKIPer and Dearlove a brexiter/Enoch powell type.
  3. Looks half rotten so may be rubbish firewood. Alfreds cake on the 3rd pic so thats ash?
  4. That petrol saw in comparison seems to have a blunt chain and probabaly some 60 quid ebay job? 🙂
  5. Stere


    Bike pulling lecky trailers with 150kg bio waste by beardy hipsters maybe will be normal in future ?
  6. Isn't it a gamble with frost? Had two eucs in garden yrs ago both got but by frost one has coppiced other died. Trees were over 15yrs old still got them. Was probable this exceptional cold spell Winter of 2010–11 in Great Britain and Ireland - Wikipedia EN.WIKIPEDIA.ORG
  7. Think provenance choice of species planted is important as so much variation within species prorbably often overlooked? Mentions a late flushing walnut cultivar that reduces frost damage: https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwiSnKvc2OXpAhVRoVwKHaBlDtIQFjABegQIBxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.forestresearch.gov.uk%2Fdocuments%2F967%2Ffcin082.pdf&usg=AOvVaw3VotZA-AvR1QVo3Kkfh68k Also the selection of a seed source from a cultivar of a species selected for the timber quality plus climate and soils.
  8. Polytunnel looks to small to fit the wood in.
  9. 12m think you need some decent ladders or reduce height alot. 🤔 Width is always an issue also sometimes people don't realize this when they get hedges 6m across the top. Leylandi doesn't grow from dead wood so may look ugly after a severe reduction though if it is just topped may be hidden. Makita battery garden stuff it good .
  10. Why is it always "must be a hornbeam"
  11. What wrong with non natives if they grow well and provide useful timber. I'd like more sweet chesnuts coppice plantations but maybe climate isn't viable for them in north?
  12. What wood is it, and what are & how are thoose steel base plate things connected? Fancy doing a log shed like that seems an ideal way stopping the legs rotting off.
  13. Any other ones e.g? Flat earther 9/11 Truther Chemtrails Queens a Lizard Climate change denial Moon Landings 5G Corona chinese bioweapon.
  14. Yeah often being told "we have have giant hogweed" at its always just regular Hogweed. Regular hogweed still cases me blisters 😑 For OP If just has 3 plants why not just dig up or trim down mow area?
  15. Alot of social media guff kids get obsessed with filming themselves jumping off high drops. Get likes on insta or something. Forget to bother to check water depth......
