  3. our engineered floor looks slightly too perfect certainly no filler no way would i put that down
  4. hi i would like to cover an area of about 2 meters by 5 meters with a block of conifer to about 1.5 / 2 meters high it would be kept trimmed and perhaps have a couple of steps in it just straight lines not trying to make a peacock an interesting shape and perhaps provide a little nesting cover for the birds any ideas nothing against leylandi if it would be suitable and how far apart to plant and of course i want it fully established and shaped asap if not yesterday ps in central northumberland quite high up thanks david

  8. hi how is the allowable 5 cubic meters to fell per quarter without a felling licence calculated or more simply in terms of an actual hedgerow tree small middle or large dont expect anyone to be enforcing the rules but having a broad idea would be good thanks
  9. Hi i am thinking of going into the shed to cut up logs in the dark and rain so considering the most powerful stihl mains electric saw it says 2.1 kW power consumption does that mean it is equivalent to a 2.1 kW output petrol saw ? if so that would be enough any first hand experience or opinions welcome thanks
  10. Hi we are heading for a surfeit on the veg patch of horse poo if I tip it round the willows about 8 years old in my little plantation but not actually touching the trunks will it kill them fertilise them acheive nothing bar getting rid of the poo or do I have to stack it up to rot for a year then shift it again Not the answer I want to hear thanks
  11. i do not think the amount of bark in chipped limbs etc would be a problem quite different from using bags of 100 % shredded bark as sold in garden centres etc
  12. are either both tory and labour tree planting promises remotely feasible ? in terms of land available labour supplies of planting stock preferably uk sourced money perhaps from magic money tree or is it just more.................
