Woke up this morning to find this:

That's about half of the oak that's still standing. It's bloody huge.

Was blocking the road, and also blocking a neighbour's drive completely...

I have a 3/4 size felling axe...

Damn good workout at 7am! Managed to get neighbour's cars out, and will leave the rest to the council as there's a long way around to avoid this bit of road :)

Taj, you're close enough my friend :D

I really must say I'm hugely pleased with the council. Less than 2 hours later...

They've just got rid of the whole fallen bit in slightly under 20 minutes! It took me 10 to get through it once with an axe.

The shredder they've got will take tree trunks up to 30cm in diameter :blink:

A little nature power. A large tree I admid. I still believe nature will have a major strike somewhere in EU soon.

Hope it is not that local or that dense population then.

Might have wrong idea, but climate is strange here compared to my youth.

Yes, it should have gone to a neighbour for burning, but they put the lot through that chipping machine. A lot simpler, I guess.

It sounds like the rest of the tree might have to come down as it's not very stable :( . (n)
