Its not all swinging around trees and looking at trees or woodlands for AG Tree Services. Sometimes we have to roll up our sleves and get stuck with an splitting maul. Thats all about to change as we await delivery of a 10 ton petrol log splitter which can be transported from site to site. That should ease the back aches and increase the log output by a huge amount.
I was invited to drive a 6 hour round trip to St Austell this week to carry out a pilot survey on behalf of the Forestry Commission. The survey entailed looking at all the trees in a 1km square and comparing the field data with that compiled as a desktop excercise from an aerial photo. It was 1 of only 5 surveys of its type taking place in England.
