Hmm ok. I am Malvern based, don't have a woodland although I help my uncle manage his few acres and am looking into having my own.

Have spent time as a carpenter/joiner ( worked at Black Country museum briefly) and can put my hand to most wood based constructions on a smaller basis.

I have been more recently a confined spaces rescue person and currently survey water courses. Mostly for Anglian water but nationwide too. I know how to investigate flooding issues, resolutions and legalities.

Beaten up land rover owner and pretty useful at times. Looking into small scale woodland assistance work. Clearance of fallen and unsafe wood, coppicing too.

I enjoy just being out there. Recent convert to woodturning. On a powered lathe at the moment but moving on to pole soon as going on some courses.

Herefordshire based blacksmith with 30 years experience- can offer advice and encouragement on all aspects of hot forging including toolmaking, decorative and practical forgework, welding and fabrication, basic forge and equipment construction, what books to buy.

Will also be offering low impact basic blacksmithing courses using charcoal, collected rainwater, bellows etc. starting hopefully this Autumn.

Not particularly relevant :also own a battered Land rover and a 1953 Panther motorcycle and know them intimately. Play blues harmonica and Northumbrian small pipes

Hello,
As probably the newest member joining, I have been in Forestry and Forest related services for 50 years or more. I can offer help in choosing tools and chain saws and especially replacement chains for chain saws of all sizes. If you are thinking of buying a new chain saw or pruning saw , or brushcutter or even buying a new chain for your saw, please get in touch for an honest review of what you want to buy.
Thanks.. Colin
