dead sycamore

Hello My first post to the world of tree people and tree artists all and I would like your advice please.   I trimmed the sycamore in the photo about June last year just before the drought and it reacted very poorly. Specifically I removed any  dead branches of which there weren't that many of any size. There was a hefty branch that had broken off and I merely removed it without a live cut. I don't think I took off more than about 10-15% in volume. It seemed to react poorly - leav

Looking for a Load of Cord length Firewood, Wareham, Dorset

My regular supplier has retired so I'm looking for a supplier who can deliver trailer loads of cord length logs at a reasonable price.  I am happy to take green hard wood because I have space to store it while it seasons but I would expect to pay less for this.  I can take about 1 or 2 loads (like the one in the pictures below) at a time. I would prefer hardwood (and a season or 2 since felling if available) but will also consider softwood if the price is right.  If you are going

New Dolmar 7910 Chainsaw

Just loving the new Dolmar 80cc 7910 chainsaw.... Having just done my CS32 qualifications the chainsaw was awesome... It chewed through the tree trunks like it was going out of fashion... It was a bit heavy when throwing it about for snedding and a 60cc Dolmar 6100 might be better for doing that... But I guess that I will have to just get used to it and toughen up..? Can't wait to get on the next courses... Windblown & Uprooted.... And Emergancy Tree Works

Hi, I'm considering felling a 40' (ish) Monkey Puzzle in Leicester, I'm going to chip all of the branches, however have heard that the trunk timber is useful to some. I can either drop it in small sections, or in larger chunks. Whomever collects will need a Hiab crane or similar if I'm dropping it in big bits, seems it will be very heavy!   Anybody interested  in this?    Jon

Guide to classifications of chainsaw protective wear

Chainsaws are extremely dangerous power tools and it’s important for operators to use the right safety gear, otherwise, accidents with chainsaws can result in major injury or death.   It then falls on the employer's responsibility to provide chainsaw operators with appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and clothing. Choosing the right PPE, however, entails knowing the regulations behind it and the designs that would fit the job at hand.   EU Classification System For Cha

A Buyer's Guide to Cobra Bracing

Arborists often need to provide structural support for trees through the use of either fibre ropes or steel cables to secure the stability of the major elements of the tree. There are several different approaches to bracing a tree but the Cobra System is one of the most popular and best. It is easy to install, will cater to many different types of defects and instabilities, does not require any specialist tools or training, and is completely non-invasive to the tree.

Tree Surveys and Tree Tags

All arborists will invariably carry out tree surveys from time to time. They can be conducted on land owned by public sector bodies or on private estates. They ensure that the individual or organisation managing the land has the correct information that they need to make decisions regarding how they will manage the tree stock.   There is official guidance, namely British Standard BS5837, which sets out how decisions should be made when managing trees. A tree survey is needed before any
