  1. Would have been decent I reckon , bottom 20 ft was rotten and hollow , plus I was sick of the sight of it by the time we finished, so on a trailer and as far away from me as possible ?
  2. Big nobbly beech from gosforth church a while back , just got the photos

    Apple trees

    Hi all , over the years I've only ever pruned Apple trees sympatheticly, recently I've been asked to reduce a whole orchard of 20 ft trees by approx 50 % this coming autumn , I'm presuming they'll come back fine ? Any thoughts ? This is a customer request by the way , many of the trees are intertwined and competing for light and have never been touched , also removing the odd one is not an option, thanks

    Small timber job

    Hi Gary, sorry meant to reply earlier , yes I'll let you know when we make a start and timber quality and price etc , we are in west cumbria near ravenglass
  5. I've cancelled everything, for next three weeks probably more , it's the fear of passing anything on to the vulnerable of course , might paint the house!

    Small timber job

    Great thanks for that , I'll get a rough idea from that , the owners have proposed that we can have the timber in exchange for the work , so should be viable

    Small timber job

    Thanks for that, probably just crack on in late summer and see what's what, maybe just get a tractor trailer on day rate
  8. Hi , im currently looking at a small timber job , it's been estimated at 180m3 , looking for a rough estimation in tonnage, it's a mixture of larch Scots pine Sitka, birch and sycamore , so I can price forwarding etc , thanks

    Echo 330 evl

    I'm looking for part for a friends saw , it's the cpu, part number is 156-601-158-30 , saw probably about 30 years old ? If anybody has one or knows where to get one ? Thanks
  10. Storm damage from last week, leylandii willow and a Corsican pine within striking distance of the house so took 15 ft or so off the top
  11. Often works ok, this one was too far gone , it was mush at the bottom ! Not sure how it was still standing !
  12. Pretty shaky at full extend , but not scary at all there is obviously a good few tonnes for ballast! Would great to own one but round here 80% of our trees are in a garden down a slope round a corner over a greenhouse with enough overhead wires to choke a donkey!
