Whilst I'm not interested in running an online shop there are a range of books, tools, trees, seed and other stuff that I'm able to source for tree growers. I'm really only interested in products that are otherwise difficult to get hold of or equipment that I myself find is of high quality.
There are lots of long handle pruning loppers around and I've tried them all and broken quite a few. The pair I like best for pruning eucalypts and other hardwoods is the Lisam (80cm handles). The Otway Agroforestry Network (not for profit) sell them for $160 (ex Melb and incl GST).
No, I don't actually sell logging winches but I do have a bit to do with someone who does. I have a winch and love it. I'm happy help you decide if you need one and what type might suit.

Shiitake Manual and Spawn
Shiitake mushrooms are the second-most consumed edible fungi in the world. Whilst most commercial producers use artificial substrates and expensive controlled-environment facilities there is a growing interest in the traditional log-based methods that have been used for centuries in East Asia. In fact, the word Shiitake literally means Oak- Mushroom. Based on research undertaken at The University of Melbourne and local commercial-scale trials including one at the CERES Community Environment Park in Melbourne, this well illustrated and practical manual provides the first detailed analysis of the methods, yields and prospects for log-grown Shiitake mushroom production in Australia.
