    Next level

    Mick Dempsey hit the nail on the head there (and again if he went to bed a bit earlier with his burd 💋❤️) When i'm mad busy i may do 5 days per week but generally i do 3 or 4 and suit meself. It's only cutting trees/hedges and most of it is unimportant and non urgent. I jumped off the sofa last friday and did an urgent job for a local parish that had a chestnut pollard fail, udder than that i ain't stressing for nobody. I have literally just had 7 weeks off due to a combination of a holiday, her having surgery (twice) and me having a shoulder injury. I'm happy enuf plodding along steady loike. I enjoy what i do ferra living but it's not something i rave on about down the pub and as i get older i wanna ride me motorbikes more instead and do a degree in Cake-Ology.

    Trailer weight

    I suppose with the new MOT`s on 40kph + tractors for non ag use all the trailers towed by them without over run brakes will need to be tested as well. Its either overrun and no test or its a tested trailer with nothing in-between. I am also wondering how they go about the euro/yank system of electric brakes, that could be deemed "power brakes" They are on the imported yank Morbark chippers as well so they may need testing if used behind a truck.

    The state of trees in South Wales

    Hi Ben I was up at lathkill dale ( Derbyshire the other weekend and there is evidence of Ash die back up there in young trees. If it gets hold up there the landscape will look a lot different.

    ArbDogs? Pics!

    Just an update, I saw these dog training collars which they said a good device to train dogs, it is inexpensive, safe, and effective. But still, I want to ask the opinion of others if it is safe to use or it is not against animal cruelty. I'm open for more suggestions and recommendations, though.

    A Very Lucky Guy

    Still unsure on what he did. Was he just back cutting the top out causing it to rip? But looking at his rope and the trunk it looks as if the tree buckled and pinched his rope? I dunno [emoji848]

    Pruning tree after wind damage

    Hi, My three year old Pink Cassia Bakeriana had a perfect canopy before hurricane irma decided to do its own pruning. I did some pruning to lower branches months ago but as you can see, the tree is funny looking. My questions are: 1. Should I trim the large top branches and shape it even and round? Will it ever grow tall? 2. Should I leave the top branches and prune off all the mid and lower branches? Will it ever grow a normal canopy? 3. Do i leave it alone? will the top branches drop and the lower ones catch up and eventually look normal? Thank You!

    Turning down work

    Either price yourself out of jobs with high quotes or save everybody's time by telling them you don't work on the estate because every time you do you' had stuff stolen. There's not much they can say to that, they would probably agree anyway.

    Rope with zig zag

    Found my cougar blue to run through better than my tachyon but that may have been because it was brand new. But I like it

    A Tail of Two–MS200T–Top Handles & Compression Tests

    Yes as you have an extra void to fill within the adaptor so the compression will never read as high through when using one.

    How many hours do you put into your business?

    Yeah and no - Ive worked in some grim trees in grim conditions, and I can hack it as well now as I ever could - I guess i've just been spoilt by 3 weeks of wandering around Stockholm University doing an inventory in my shorts eating ice creme to be that keen to be back out in the dark freezing my nuts off because after this weekend - it starts getting that little bit darker on an evening and winter will be back soon enough.

    Trees & shade

    I think he'd left his magnum at home, fortunately. He did demonstrate the use of a walking stick against a wild boar charge, should you come across one on Hampstead Heath I'm sure that it would be really effective.
