We thought a bit of festive tree surgery would be in order.

The road will be quiet and some of the willow branches will need to come down on it.

Composting woody plants over 20 months?

Some people compost pp but much of the time I chuck it straight back, I sometimes point the shredder at areas under shrubs so I don't even have to move it.

I've tried cutting and not cutting and the former looks best.
