  1. That's just lovely, I guess you helped him a bit by allowing him to talk about his wife and allowing some of her possessions to be loved by someone else. On a similar theme of nice people on my last mooring I had a bit of chest infection and was laid low for a while and the neighbours made sure I had water, food and one morning I heard a some log splitting followed by the being stacked on my roof, all without asking. People can be lovely
  2. Just post a few more times in this thread, I think you need 10 posts before you can use the message system
  3. Ohhhhh you old fart, not even as old as I am we never worked with natural fibre ropes. Mind you when I first started to climb we used cable lay, it had so much stretch you would move up a couple of feet and return to your start point when you put you weight on the rope, plus descending would turn the dead end into a rats nest and leave you stuck halfway down the tree. Then multiplait arrived, no rats nest and much reduced stretch, lush. All of the above nonsense will age me massively when read by another tree surgeon
  4. Ahh I see, never heard the term, plus I suppose my working ropes would be ditched well before they reached gash stage. Ohhhh I used to hate new rope day
  5. Considering I've been playing around with ropes for a fair few years I have no idea what you mean

  12. Have you checked if that is part of CRTs plan for bankside veg
  13. The pitchforks will be useful for getting all that grass out of the river There's 3 different contractors and I see no proof they have failed, certainly not this early into a new contract
  14. So as it's fly tipping, it's illegal, or you could try to explain your thinking, I'm genuinely confused

  16. This is a genuine question, why do you not think dumping grass cuttings in the river isn't fly tipping

  20. I pointed out the issue a fair while ago, eutrophication. The issue isn't your grass cuttings or in fact maybe your neighbours but it becomes an issue if everyone does it, so the approach is just to say don't do it. The natural inflow of organic matter obviously can cause similar issues, but grass tends to be higher in nitrogen, but autumn comes when there is more rain so is more likely to be washed out to sea in rivers, whilst grass cutting season tends to be in lower flow conditions, there will still be a build up of organic matter though. Canals will be different because of the lack of flow and organic matter can build up quicker over time and lead to the bottom being to close to the top much quicker and the dumping of high nitrogen material like grass is likely to cause eutrophication issues much easier. Someone mentioned farmers and their impact and this is a serious issue, both organic matter/soil and nitrogen run off and this is being addressed quite seriously at the moment with additional controls in areas likely to effect rivers. Apart from that it is fly tipping I did speculate earlier on, new contract, new contractors mobilising, report the issues to CRT so they can get the contractors back if required

  23. I agree with all of this, the reason I was vague about the specifics in Athys post was because I simply didn't know for a fact and was unable to find anything highlighting the exact circumstances with a quick Google. As you highlight dumping waste on 3rd party property is fly tipping and illegal and I suspect this is what Athy is doing in the eyes of the law
