Climbing The Ladder When You're Tired of Climbing Trees

Climbing The Ladder When You're Tired of Climbing Trees

With 20 years' experience in the industry, we are well aware that there comes a time in every climbing arborists' life that being up trees for a living becomes harder.   Often that moment is what pre-empts the conversation we then have with climbers about next steps but it pays to think about this before that moment arrives.    There are several ways that experienced climbers and groundsmen can advance their careers. There are lots of options, whether it's going on to become

Fallen tree XXL

I've had a 50-60 foot tree come down in Storm Eunice.  I think it's a hemlock or spruce.  It's enormous (imo) and not sure what to do with it.  Is there any value in this wood and is it worth contacting a sawmill?  It seems a shame for a tree of this size to be reduced to firewood and while I have the land to store it, not sure I have the tools to deal with something this big.

Bob's library

Welcome 🤗   I decided to create a blog where I can put useful information for those who are interested in accessing info that Mainstream Media censor and don't want you to know. All I want to do is give the opportunity for those who don't have the time to trawl through the huge mountain of sites, where there is either confusing or conflicting 'facts'. It's taken me many years to open my eyes to the world I thought I knew through a long and time consuming process. Sometimes ignorance is

Tree Care 101: What Is Tree Surgery?

Tree Care 101: What Is Tree Surgery? Have you heard of tree surgeons? How about tree surgery? Both play vital roles in tree health, and they are important for the overall wellbeing of these plants and those who have them on their property.   While working as a tree surgeon can be potentially dangerous, it's important to know that these professionals take their jobs seriously and that they'll be able to help your tree whenever it might need it. But what exactly do they do, and what

Cordyline Australis

I’ve just bought 2 palms from the local garden centre. They are both around 6 feet tall but one of them has new growth sprouting above the main body of leaves which by the size of its stalk has been allowed to grow for a while. The branches which are coming from this growth have little buds on them. These are my first ever palms and now I’m worried if I let this growth go on it will cause stability problems and maybe deficiency problems. Because I’m a novice  I need some expert advice.
