  1. Mates round a campfire, one day soon hopefully. Somewhere like this maybe?
  2. Sorry, it said failed to upload, hence multiple times. Anyone would think I've been hitting the whisky tonight!
  3. My favourites of this lot are Talisker, Laphroaig and Highland Park. None are 18yr, maybe should treat myself to one sometime.[emoji48]

    Took chip and a few logs, great set up easy to find.
  8. That's my old chipper, looks like you "borrowed" my photo! All the best finding one.
  9. Addressing rural Scotland’s gender imbalance - gov.scot WWW.GOV.SCOT Providing training support for women. £500 grant available for women to do Lantra training in Scotland. Hope it's useful for some people. Jan.
  10. Whatever happened to stefan and his grinding business?
  11. Seriously consider the husky 540i battery saw, I haven't tried the stihl equivalent but so impressed with the husky. Not cheap and you will need 2 batteries but so good. J.
  12. You might know this already but... Buying local might be a bit more but if you need it fixed in a hurry a local dealer can often do that. If that saves a day or two of work that quickly mounts up as a saving on the purchase. J.
  13. Shouldn't need that with a new chipper though, should he! [emoji85] [emoji86] [emoji87]
  14. Sparrowhawk in the garden. Spotted whilst watching otters in the Tay.
  15. I m basing this on scotland so may be slightly different. With TPO trees I have had to specify size of branch to remove/prune. However with CA trees you can ask for whatever you want, the only option the TO has is to approve your work or put a Tpo on the tree. If the client is adamant on severe reduction I will ask for 30 or even 50% reductions, as the other option is a full removal, it's better to keep a tree than lose it completely. This is especially with low quality trees. However, if I think the tree is possibly worthy of tpo I will be more conservative with my request, ie as per bs3998. Bs3998 specifies that reductions should be more specific than a % reduction, and you should quantify length branches to be reduced by. Look up your 3998 reduction info. All the best, Jan.
