This is what I should end up with...

It may be tedious and time-consuming work, but it results in an almost-free end product. We have the woodland, which provides the raw material and we have had the shredder for years, I donate my time, so that just leaves the cost of running the machine.
Next time I must wear my face visor, I scorned it yesterday because it was hot and the day was humid, luckily I did elect to wear the safety glasses. I got whacked on the forehead by a madly gyrating branch as it was gobbled up by the shredder. I bear the scar. That'll teach me.
PS I have disabled comments for this post - it really doesn't merit any. I just wanted to explain why I'll be busy for the next couple of day.x
