Unusual picky. About two quid a log.
Wow ! are 2Ps no longer legal tender in the UK ?
Anyone know how, when & why inserting coins into wood began ? Walking in Dove Dale we noticed many fallen trees with masses of coined wedged into the bark, some must have been donkeys years old.
Unusual photo Mick, shows that some of us walk around with our eyes open !
what is CCILIK?
Helen I heard that inserting copper coins into trees was to stop them from growing again.
Your right about seeing many fallen trees with coins knocked in them, Ive seen plenty up in the Lake district when Ive been walking around.
Kath it is spelling Co Uk
Very interesting! I must try that with a stump in my backyard. It would make a handy gardening seat!(note to ecologically minded,the tree was downed last year only because it had become diseased and was additionally interfering with Hydro wiring.)
You can be prosecuted for this activity. It's know as defacing a coin of the realm.
