I'm not.  Rural wooded areas with poles are a total nightmare, you can lose literally miles of overheads and you have to clear all the fallen trees before you can start repairing the lines. .... or even get to them !!

Not a good advert for the "great electrical future" that was being touted at COP a  couple of weeks ago.

I’ve just been to the local Forestry Commission forest to collect a Christmas tree and the number of large trees felled by the wind is sobering and rather sad.
