    Wood (and coal) burning stoves to be banned

    Not commercial logging more Arb work but am now involved in survey and work specification. There is no general law to replant any tree felled, any replanting will be based on the site constraints/ felling license if required Obviously commercial forestry will replant after harvesting and this will normally be based on a higher stocking level than the final mature tree count but this is simply to allow for failure and thinning to final stocking density.

    Yup it's madness, biomass should be sourced locally, ideally using waste not virgin timber

    Sorry to inform you, it's got Ash dieback and errr well died Yup Drax, it's sucking up all the spare biomass in the country, the price of roadside bulk timber has shot up. Firewood suppliers are getting desperate

    There is an argument that trees treated this way can live forever, because of how they react when cut all the new growth is juvenile, so a constant cycle of rejuvenation. Getting very geeky now, I will stop..

    Slightly more than 5 more cycles, properly treated the stools can last 100s of years

    But all those do gooders (daft phrase) have been warning about global warming for a long time now, it's the do badders (!) Who have ignored the issue that have caused the problem. Anyway this particular isn't about global warming it's about particulate pollution. Oh and burnt toast thing is media hype, as is much of this type of nonsense https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.nhs.uk/news/cancer/warning-over-burnt-toast-chemical-acrylamides-cancer-risk/&ved=2ahUKEwihh8iupPLfAhXsSBUIHdxZAncQFjAMegQIBRAB&usg=AOvVaw2INvqiBd0CiOsRPym1WpSs

    Otters at Napton

    Recently spotted a load of fish scales and other bits next to BSPs boat they were from a bloody big fish as well, judging by the size of the scales. Anyway popped in to say hello to her indoors and described what I saw and apparently she was woken up in the night by a lot of crashing and banging against the hull, which we decided must have been the otter or mink extracting said fish.

    Do you have a boating knife?

    True story. My best mate at infants school was collecting the pencils and as he walked behind me I pushed my chair out, he tripped and fell on the floor, one of the pencils stabbed him just to the side of his eye. Blood everywhere and he still has a half inch scar, bloody lucky tbh almost went in his eye. Mind you it would have been much worse if he was collecting the classes flick knives

    As I understand it, they are planning on banning house coal and putting controls on firewood, insisting wood is <20% water content, not outrageous tbh although how they will police the firewood I have no idea. The controls on stoves are, I think, a bigger issue, as approved stoves are limited in the ability to be shut down and slumber overnight
