Short time lapse of start of large conifer dismantle from last week (till the battery died on my phone!)
View from today. Could see The Spinnaker Tower in Pompey across to the chimneys at Fawley and the Isle of Wight beyond that, all from Durley near Bishops Waltham.
Time lapse of a job last week, reducing the height of a line of sycamores to get some evening sun in the garden. With Adam, Dom and Jez.

A few more pics from a recent job reducing the height of some poplar trees. Not often we end up this high, 140ft to the tops. With Dom, Adam and Glenn.


Lovely views over Romsey this morning. Can anyone see their house???

For Valentine's Day we thought we'd share this touching story.

When his wife of 33 years died suddenly, Winston Howes decided to create a lasting tribute to he...r. He planted thousands of oak saplings leaving a heart-shaped clearing in the middle where he could sit and remember her. His romantic labour of love cannot be seen from the road but this aerial shot shows it in all its glory.

Beautiful isn't it? Happy Valentine's Day everyone.

Help save hogs!

The Woodland Trust

Hedgehog numbers halved since the millennium. The State of Britain’s Hedgehogs 2018 report says Britain has lost half its hedgehogs in less than two decades. Th...e main causes are habitat loss and lack of landscape-scale connectivity.

Woodland edge and hedgerow destruction and poor management are major contributing factors in hedgehog decline, causing habitat loss and reducing macroinvertebrates available for food. The use of pesticides on farmland and garden plots can have detrimental impacts on hedgehogs and their food supply. In urban areas, the use of impermeable fencing, loss of compost heaps and increasing development are other major issues.

You can help hedgehogs and other wildlife by planting trees, hedgerows and woods on your land or in your local community. Compost heaps are a favourite home for hedgehogs and providing holes or gaps in fences and hedges will allow them access to your land.

Love yews!

The Woodland Trust

With lifespans of up to 3,000 years, the oldest living thing in the UK is easily a yew tree. Yews have witnessed some monumental moments in our history. A yew said to have sheltered Robert the Bruce, it was under a yew that the Magna Carta was sealed and the same yew was also believed to be a meeting place for Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.

Could a yew be immortal? Yews are incredibly long lived; in fact they live for around 900 years before they become ancient. That’s compared to around 400 years for an oak tree. Ancient yews can then expect to go on thriving for thousands of years. The association with immortality could have come about because of the evergreen foliage or because of the yew's amazing ability to renew itself. They can return to life from apparent decay.

Can you guess the name of the UK's oldest yew? Read more about the UK's ancient yews at
