  1. There is a product called Ventair which is great for vertical cladding on sheds. Its box profile with louvres, so it's strong, easy to install and gives good ventilation. I have been in a friends large log store on a wet and windy day clad with this stuff and it works well! It's probably pricey, but may be worth considering.
  2. Found these on Christmas eve, in a damp corner of one of the sheds on the farm. Probably not tree related, but I thought they were interesting. Any ideas, anyone ?
  3. I'm going to copy that, before you get a patent on it !
  4. My recent tipsite review was of Li Vockings site, not Gareths Garden, I messed up big time there. Sorry !
  5. If you want a price for removal, message me, I will be in Newcastle several times next week.
  6. Di bond sheet, from Amari plastics, check out their web site. Aluminium / plastic sandwich sheet. Lots of colour , size and thickness options. Rivet or bolt it to frame or mesh using large washers if you need to. It makes strong, light weight panels, which look professional and it's relatively cheap ! I've used it on several trucks and trailers and used other products from Amari for various projects too.
  7. So, whats this piece of English Oak worth then ? and would anyone on here like to buy it ? I went on Saturday to give a price to ring up and haul this for firewood for a friend of the tree's owner. In my mind its too good for fire wood and suggested they they sell it for milling. Access to the timber is very good at the moment, the ground is rock hard. I am going to cut a ring or two off the bottom this week and will post pictures when I do . The house behind was built in the 1870's but the tree may far older, as records state their was property on this site in the 1400's.
  8. Kept stopping for a laugh at this 3 month takedown at Corbridge Allottments last spring.
  9. Here's my solution for big timber + poor access One old Avant and 2 Truxta's And for stumps in back gardens ( small stumps )
  10. In the past I have sold monkey puzzle to Hexhamshire Hardwoods who then dries it and sells it on to wood turners. ( not much money in it for me, but easy way to get rid ) Last year I was asked to provide some timber discs for wedding table decorations, so did some from monkey puzzle. If you cut carefully across the knots, your left with a propeller pattern of dark 'blades' against the lighter background. Its just a different way of using the timber that any tree surgeon could manage. The photos show one cut, unworked example and one finished one which was the poorest from the bunch and not used for the wedding. Transplanted.
  11. Hi, I Have been asked to carry out tree work in a garden covered by an Area TPO, dating from 1970 when the houses were built. The species of trees covered are listed and these are obvious when looking at the site as they are all now large trees. Am I right to assume that only these original trees are still covered by the TPO and that all other trees ( regardless of age, size or species ) are not protected ? I did crown reduce some Poplars on this site in the 90's and applied to planning at the time. I now think I need not have applied, but the Tree Officer never indicated otherwise. Grateful for advise / opinions please. Scan0001.pdf
  12. I bring the 394 out 2 or 3 times per month. Its a solid reliable saw,great for ringing up with a 28'' bar. It was a bargain buy about 7 years ago,£450 for a saw that had only been used to fell and clear up one tree! the owner then retired and stored it away until I heard about it. It's still on the original bar and the only parts renewed have been clutch springs. I will give it to my son when I retire !
  13. Update ; If my price is accepted for the dismantles, a local chainsaw carver is going to pay the householder for the Sequoia, after I get them down on to the floor in suitable lengths. At the moment no one wants the Corsican, so when felled it will probably stay on site as fire wood for the owner.
  14. Hi, I have been asked to price the removal of 2 Sequoia and one Corsican pine. The owners want to keep the smaller Corsican timber ( under 1 M ) for logs and to keep the total cost of the job down by me taking the remaining timber as part payment. The 25-30 M Corsican is to be sectional felled down to 10 M. The 10 M stick can be felled and this measures 1.2 M diameter tapering to 1 M. Both Sequoia are about 18 M tall, the fat one has a dbh of about 2.5 M , tapers quickly and is badly fire damaged at the base on one side. The second one has a dbh of 1.2 M with a very gradual taper. The timber will be roadside with a big forklift on site. If anyone wants to make me an offer, please p m me. Transplanted.
  15. The small black vertical handle rear left is the release for the tipper. If you search on you tube there are quite a few videos of them in use. The petrol 300 kg has a retail list price of £4,450.00 + VAT, although dealers may discount this.
