John Seymour, oh yes, he's been in our library for more years than than I want to think about. We learnt a lot from him

Pretty well any time I should think Dawn. Avoid frozen and waterlogged times

Thanks B-L and chicky I love the woodland. and our fuel bills are tiny

That tree will come down across a pond, squash a hawthorn, maybe 2. It's a lovely habitat as it stands and I hope there won't be too many animals with concussion after the event

Steve 3 years would be short for firewood maybe, willow is the fastest, good in a closed wood stove but a bit fast burning for an open fire. Your friend can  play it by eye, when they look right for purpose, get the saw out

our hazels were planted in 1993 and this was their second cut. The first cut made a temporary fence, they were very tall but a bit lightweight, trunks up to 6 inches this time

Some for all purposes Steve.

These hadn't been touched for 13 years, they were more than bean poles, just right for the wood burner in 2018.

 before, a shady path

 sticks for the shredder

 lots of firewood

 after, rather bare looking

How much longer can that 45 degree willow defy gravity

I think you need to trap them in something or they'll all blow around on nights like tonight.
