Hello, Hoping someone might be able to cast some light on a peculiar issue I'm having. I've felled a series of mixed-type trees recently without issue, but today I made a start on felling a Leylandii (approx 18" diameter, with nominal cut point approx 15" - 18" above ground) with a relatively fresh chain (one tree fell on this chain) and, within just 20 - 30 seconds of making the first 'face' cut in the Laylandii (at 60 to 70 degrees, so more akin to a rip than a cross-cut, I suppose) the relatively fresh chain felt completely dull and, on removal from the kerf, the cutting teeth faces appeared to be thoroughly 'clogged' with swarf that seems too stubborn to remove. I'll attempt to add a picture. I've not experienced this before but this is the first Leylandii I've tried to fell. Having done some googling, I do seem to find posts which connect Laylandii with accelerated blunting of the chain. In your collective experience and wisdom, does this sound 'normal' for Leylandii and if so, is there a particular type of chain or approach to avoiding this? Many thanks in advance.

Hi all, I have 20 odd, very large, Leylandii trees that I am planning to have removed. They were planted in 1934 and are all 80' or so tall and with large girth. Are these trees saleable? Any ideas who I might contact to sell them to? Any thoughts much appreciated. Thanks.
