Hi Ian, The only evidence we see of ash dieback is the councils "arboreal service" going around the countryside hacking limbs off ash trees whenever they overhang the road. We seem to have no ash dieback on out property, but all our ash is very old, and it seems to affect younger trees the worst. Some of our ash has had to be cut down where it grows near to some overhead cables, and it grows back vigourously! Ash trees do drop limbs, but that has nothing to do with disease. We have sawn up several very large shed limbs, but afaik, we have no blackened leaves, or lesions around branch junctions. Spring will tell! Glad you are back, I may have to isolate too! Stay healthy. Thanks for watching and for the comments.
Phil,
Far East of Yorkshire

And Now, due to Keiths wife having a seroius heart condition (although you wouldn't think it when you see her work) and my wife having Asthma, we are self isolating from each other, so the fencing and completion of the field work will be at a later date! Normal workshop style stuff will contine as long as we are well, I can isolate myself there!

Hi people,
During last weeks work on the fallen trees, I discovered that my chainsaw, an antique Stihl 08S, would not start, here is the tale of me fixing it, and then fixing it again! Many thanks to "The Repair Specialist" whose youtube vids put right my mistake! Enjoy, subscribe, and above all, stay healthy!

Hi all,
Not done much due to the virus lockdown, I bet all the survivalists in the USA are rolling around their bunker floors, surrounded by food, laughing their heads off! I did get a day and a half in the workshop, made a cold frame for my daughters roof garden, she was pleased with the solid practical construction, but thought the aesthetics left a lot to be desired! Teenagers! There's no pleasing them! Like, comment, subscribe, enjoy! We live in "interesting" times.
