    Do you love it or hate it?!

    I have a bit of a 'marmite' situation going on with this tree, can't make up my mind if I love it or hate it! Does anyone else have a view? I think I like the freshness and habit of the young tree but feel the mature tree is rather lollopy. At the Barcham Trees nursery we have some 40-50cm tall trees in 20 litre pots available from September 2019. Sometimes referred to as the Chile Pine, Araucaria araucana is also a native of Argentina. This ancient slow growing evergreen tree is well known for its distinctive long slender branches that are densely covered with overlapping spiked leaves. Amazingly enough, it was once a native of Britain. The fossilized wood from this tree was highly coveted by Queen Victoria. Otherwise known as Jet, it was used in the making of mourning jewellery. Hardy in the UK, they are often planted far too close to houses so have to be removed before they get to maturity. This unusual conifer prefers a moist loamy soil and has great apical dominance drawing the tree up strongly vertical so it is very suited to crown lifting. Handle with care - the foliage/leaves are very sharp! The cones are globular up to 20cm in length and take up to three years to mature. Product spec:- https://lnkd.in/gbPKsa9 #trees

    Pinus Sylvestris fastigiata grown at Barcham Trees, Cambridgeshire, UK

    Pinus sylvestris fastigiata - A wonderfully columnar form of Scots Pine, so tight in habit, that one has to get quite close to indentify it. There are some nicely maturing specimens in the conifer garden at the Harlow Carr arboretum. The needles appear almost blue when young giving it a highly ornamental feel. Introduced circa 1856, it is naturally occurring in Europe. It can reach over 10 metres tall if it isn’t hampered by snow and ice build up which can cause it to fracture. However there are no such problems in the UK making this a fabulous choice for many aspects. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, we have some 1m-1.5m tall trees in 45 litre pots available from 1st September 2019. You can view and pre-order trees now for Autumn planting. Mature height: 7-12m Mature spread: 1-2m Further product details at the link below:- https://www.barchampro.co.uk/store/products/pinus-sylvestris-fastigiata Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk

    We prefer a mix of leaves and wood chips, please. Conifer wood chips in a small amounts are welcome too.
  4. A bit of a conundrum with this pine tree. The tree is looking great and looks in pretty good health. One of just a few remaining at the top of the site where I work and this one is still growing well. Its also evergreen and keeps things looking interesting in its locale. However as you can see in the photos the roots of this tree go under a fairly heavily used path. The path used to be tarmac and the roots ripped up the tarmac. In 2015 the path was dug up and then resin bound gravel was put down instead. The roots are starting to come through the path now and this will be an ongoing saga I can only imagine. I think I need to either move the path, which would be a bit odd looking or potentially put some sort of bridge over the path area, take up the path and leave it as soil underneath the ramp/bridge. But again that also may look odd. Anyone got any ideas of what is the best way to solve it. I am surprised the tree itself is still doing so well. Apologies, the photos are not the best.
  5. saw a video a few months ago of some guy using chalk on pine cut (presumably to prevent sap getting everywhere) just wondering if anyone has used this or something similar? thanks in advance
  6. Hi. I work for a local authority in South Bucks and we manage Country Parks. We have the following timber stacks for sale (as firewood presumably): ALSO, read to the bottom if you are interested in potential felling jobs with timber sale as price). STACK 1...Mixed species but approx. 65% deciduous, all cut 8 ft long, diameter varies from 2"-2ft, average diameter 6/7", stack measures 5ft 9" high, 88ft long. This was cut Winter 2013/14. Good access - can take photos of road surface for interested parties. Warning: only 50 pieces are over one foot diameter. Small bits inc. birch but the big bits all all oak. STACK 2...Grand fir and pine, all cut 12ft, 4"-20" diameter, average 11" diameter, Approx 140 pieces, cut Feb 2014. Good access - same place as STACK 1. Storm damage clear up. STACK 3...Scots pines, all 12ft long. 4"-2.5ft dia, average dia 1 ft, stack size 5ft3" high, 42ft long, approx 300 pieces, felled and stacked spring 2014, 55 to 60 pieces are over one ft diameter. There are a few other bits of conifer and sweet chestnut dotted around on the ground, which we would be happy to listen to offers for if you visit. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions or request photos of the timber or the access points. We also have a sizable clearance job to undertake at one of our parks. Brash would need disposing of (fine to burn at certain times of year). It is under HLS so there are terms and conditions to adhere to. The ground conditions are potentially pretty wet in the winter, so we would be needing seasonal extraction and we want the brash disposed of (burning ok but seasonal - basically winter ok only!) The Felling Licence is in place and calculated as: 5.8 hectares, all Scots pine, approx. age of trees 35 yrs, the dbh is 31. The selective felling percentage is 70% to come out. The licence calculates the metre cubed volume at 600 m3. At this moment I'm just trying to ascertain interest in the felling and clearance job - I may have to put it out to tender depending on value. Certainly public liability insurance and tickets will be required and we would have to set you up as an official vendor etc. but this hasn't caused any problems in the past with official businesses etc. Enquiries are very welcome at this stage. Whether we clear it all in one go or stagger it over five years is also debatable at this stage. Cheers. Matt.
  7. Hi, I currently have 5 acres of woodland containing Douglas Fir and Scots pine. I am looking for a little advice about what to do with it. I recon there are around 350 - 400 trees, between 40-50ft tall and all dead straight. I have the option of logging it and seasoning it for next year and using the dead ones this year, or.. Selling to a saw mill which can make it into boards, utility poles etc Any ideas? Thanks

    Large monterey takedown

    My first ever post to the forum, only learnt to climb 18 months ago so no doubt there will be bits that the more experienced climber would have done differently etc. Any constructive criticism welcome Also, I was the one who rather stupidly walked behind the stem as the groundsman felled it (only way past), I was expecting him to take longer then he did combined with miss communication. Shall not do that again! Thanks [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfEYFENAmio]Huge Monterey Pine Dismantle Salcombe Devon - YouTube[/ame]
