We have two woodlands in Tyne and Wear, about 7 acres altogether. We actively manage the woodlands by coppicing and thinning. The small wood is used for charcoal (we have a kiln) and large stuff is planked with a chainsaw mill. I am interested in getting an active group together in the north for meetings and helping each other in their woodlands.

My dear chap, I have absolutely no idea whatsoever what the ruffian above is on about (English being my first language and all that), but I've only just joined the forum and have already found it to be very useful and friendly. Too far away for us, but keep the thread going with any updates.

Tata for now, I feel a cucumber sandwich urge coming on.

I'm not a Geordie either, but I've been up here for a long time so I understand the language.

As the saying goes - "you don't have to be mad to be on here, but it helps!!!" :shock: 8-)

Welcome to the forum. I've been on here for just over 18 months and there are some excellent posts and plenty of people who can offer help/advice.

Welcome to SWOG! I'm gradually getting a list of northern owners who would like to get together. If you'd like to send me an email ([email protected]) we'll sort something out.
