There was I, yesterday afternoon, stuck up a Cherry Tree!
Well, not quite stuck as I was well able to get up and down, but the bloke who owns the mill over the road let me know that the big old cherry tree by the mill pond has to come down.
Sad really, it produces lovely fruit, what little you can get after the pigeons and magpies have their share, but the council say it is dangerous because of rot.
So, with the information that I can help myself to the wood, so long as he dosn't see me doing it, I went up with a bow saw and trimmed off the smaller branches, then used the chainsaw to drop one of the main boughs.
With a rope sling round me and the tree I was not in much danger of dropping the 30' or so I'd climbed, but it got me a decent couple of weeks worth of firewood.

Now, the important bit before I drop the rest of the tree and convert it into a lovely smelling firewood..
Does anyone on here know a craft wood worker, turner etc. who might want some decent lengths, 3' to 4' of 10" thick cherry?

Drop me a line if you do.
