    Serious sweet chestnut

    That’s a pretty special tree!
  2. I’ve got a similar scar. I’m surprised Silky don’t do a wrist guard; perhaps there’s a market for some enterprising designer.

    Pics of your milled products

    Carved a good few years ago now, from a wind-blown Oak.

    Pics of your milled products

    That’s really quite striking.

    Show us your Arb Diggers please.

    Lots of toys and a BIG sand pit to play in: just the job.

    Are these trees dying? :/

    Looks like Scarlet Oak.

    My first mallet

    Hell, I’ve lost some time looking at that website; what a fantastic resource. Thanks for posting.

    I believe William Cobbet MP thought he might make money out of Robina back in the 18th C. I don’t think it went to plan. There’s no denying they make useful timber mind.

    I would say it might need plenty of attention to persuade it to form a single, straight stem, because that doesn’t seem to be its natural habit.

    height for tree protection

    1.2m for roe: a standard size from tubes etc. Sometimes I use chicken wire.

    Oak hedge?

    I think you’re being far too pessimistic there; Oak is not as slow as you might think. I’ve planted hundreds of them, but always as trees.

    Oak hedge?

    That’s certainly different!

    Oak hedge?

    But as Mark says, Oak also holds on to dead leaves. I’m surprised not to have ever seen one: Oak’s got to make for an interesting, wildlife friendly hedge

    Oak hedge?

    I guess I’ll just have to give it a go then. Thanks.
  15. Has anyone ever seen an English Oak hedge? I can’t see why Oak shouldn’t make a decent hedge, similar to beech, but as I’ve never seen one, I guess it doesn’t work.
