I definitely would   what have you got to lose?  If you don't do it the tree will still be too big, and will get even bigger, necessitating you getting professionals in to deal with it and costing you an arm and a leg. 

Keep it coppiced, you'll get the lovely young foliage and be able to use it in flower arrangements etc in the house, as well as enhancing your garden.

I understand your anger Joyce - it would infuriate me too

Good neighbours are worth their weight in gold ......... some neighbours are further away, but they can still be 'neighbours'.

Early flowering bulbs sat around for months - still good?

Ben, yes plant them asap.  I think Clarington made a typo - I'm sure she meant " long as the bulbs are not soft and mouldy..."

ID needed please

Rose Bush Not Going Dormant

Years ago Ma had a Peace HT rose in the garden which often bloomed for Christmas. In fact the Christmas dinner table didn't look right to me if there wasn't a rose in a little vase as a centrepiece.

Good morning all   Large coffee here (still in bed). 

Russia is such a vast country with so many ethnicities and factions ; the authorities do like to keep track of everyone. As well as national passports they have internal ones and as Russians travel say from Oktobersky to visit relatives in Moscow they have to register their passport when they arrive. They cannot just move to a new area and get a job there; first they have to prove that their particular skills/education specialism are required in that area and get permission to apply for a job there. It seems authoritarian to us but it is to avoid pockets of unemployment and poverty.
