  2. Hybrid Poplar For Firewood

    There were a few trials carried out for growing hybrid willow and poplar some years back but this was for biomass not logs You might be able to find some results by googling it
  3. Timber arch/log skidded build

    You beet me to it I'm a slow typer. It works so well better than messing about with hand winches etc. also I welded a shackle to the drawbar and we have a length of chain to reach where we can't get the trailer and drag to where we can attach properly
  4. Timber arch/log skidded build

    Weld a length of 25mm bar from the drawbar to the top of the arch with a ring off a chain with a shorter on it. Back over your log attach a chain to the shortener and as you set off the log is lifted off the floor also coming downhill the log drops back to the floor and acts as breaking. So simple we made one it works great
