    Self Bracing

    I was on assessments yesterday and came across this Sycamore. She’s a pretty mature specimen and seemed to have braced itself to a low birficating leading limb. Is this tree smart or could it be a rubbing wound from and old broken limb?

    The Chainsaw of the Future to Arrive in May

    Our demo turned up today. Looking forward to the next couple of weeks using it.
  6. 3 bits of Oak and a small Cherry. I was going to build my kitchen out of it but I’m thinking about selling my house now so I won’t be needing it. I was going to get it milled and use my mates big planer/feeder. It’s sat now for about 4 months. Id rather it go to someone who’ll use it instead of me slicing it up. My yard is in Watton, Norfolk. Anyone interested in them? Jonny.

    Can I wear a long sleeve and not take questions on why I can’t bend my arm?

    Leylandii topping around sub-station

    As soon as it’s off you’ll be fine. You should get a safety sheet from UKPN when you arrive on site and just be mindful when cutting and positioning.

    Telecom lines

    This was a job I really hated. 15 lines from one pole right in the tree. I ended up being pretty brutal to this Whitebeam but it was necessary.
