A wet day at APF 2014
A wet day at APF 2014
With September forecast to be one of the driest on record I chose to visit the International Forestry Exhibition on a day following overnight torrential rain.

APF is a show dedicated to the Forestry Industry held every two years. This year it was held on the Ragley Hall Estate near Alcester and despite an hour and a half queue to do the last 3 miles it was an interesting show.
On display was just about every machine or piece of equipment from a hand saw to the very powerful and expensive log chippers that devour trees by the minute!
Lots of competitions to view including Pole Climbing, Forwarder operating, chain saw sculptures and making 4 legs for a Windsor Chair in a competitive way.
