Bad fence panels

Post by Sal73 » Sat Feb 16, 2013 10:27 pm

Just back from New Zealand and while I was there I`ve noticed the way they are building them fences
can you actually belive? while we are protecting them and pay as much as £2/1 per cm they are building fences over there :lol:

Not the best fences overall , they start to growing back .

It looks cool and it makes an interesting fence but none of them look really healthy and all look very dry, imagine what they would look like spread out in a damp woodland setting in the picture of health, it would look amazing even though they are very abundant over there it still seems a "waste of potential" to me (as my teacher used to quote).

I'm a fencer for a living and I never take my work home with me. If I worked over there I'd always be taking my work home with me! :lol: :lol:

It seems a waste to kill tree ferns for a garage

Seen worst over there , entire forest have been poisoned just to kill non native tree that where taking over
plus many forests have been sold for the use of woods , seen tons of tree fern just cutted down and let them die under the buldozer.
A real paradise for fern lovers , every forest I`ve seen had different ferns , didn`t even know about tree fern like the siver fern .

If I went over there I would come back with a million containers full of them :lol:. It seems a shame that they are just left to die after all the years they took to grow :? When things like that happen the should make it easier to export rather than all the paperwork and regulations :D

Was the intention to make a fence, or a hedge. :?: Seems they have ended up with a fedge :lol:

The thing is humans use whatever materials are abundant. We cut down trees and make fences with wood, but if tree ferns were more common than trees and were easier to cut down and move about. I'm sure we would have treefern fences here.

Familiarity, breeds contempt, as they say :wink:
Best regards

It makes you wonder if they planted them all crown up or not.
