Unstable young birch tree

Maybe you could solve the problem by pollarding the tree to whatever height would suit the site - anything from perhaps 2 to 5 ft and let it grow into a multi-stemmed tree. Stake it well and this way you might avoid the effects of the wind until it develops a really strong root system.

I think you'll find that pesticide is a catch-all word that covers any specific treatments, such as insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc.

By the way, can you tell me how to stop my computer writing in this minuscule font? 

What to grow on a one acre site?

Perhaps try growing houses; green belts are not as safe from development as they were a couple of years ago, and especially after today's Budget.

Allotment shed can anyone help!?!

Search "UK Garden Buildings". I've used them and the quality is OK, especially if you go for the stronger floor and better roofing felt. However they're not the right size for your silly council!

This sounds like a Parish Council that has no idea what its role is. I can't believe that there aren't really important things to do in your village, like ensuring that public footpaths are properly maintained, leaning on houseowners who let their hedges overhang the pavement, sorting out people who leave dog-muck everywhere, etc. It sounds as though what they are doing to you is trying to make themselves look so busy that they haven't got time to deal with important and difficult things.

Why not get on the Council yourself and stir things up a bit?
