Work experience in Scandinavia

Recommended Posts

I'm heading to Scandinavia in my campervan at the beginning of July. I'm planning to drive all the way to Arctic circle and down the other way (Baltic States) to Poland. Mainly mountain biking, rock climbing etc but I'm keen to get some experience of tree work in Scandinavian countries. 

 I'm 41, been self employed for 10 years. Mainly tree climbing, conservation woodland management, occasional commercial forestry, some tree trimming for telecom. To be honest I'm interested in every aspect of this job, specially small scale extraction and milling as I'm part of a co-op that got grants for Logbullet forwarder, mobile mill etc. I'd be interested to learn few tricks before winter season.

 I have my felling large, single windblown, assisted fell, climbing and dismantling, forwarder and skidding tickets. Rfs cert arb, Lantra PTI certs, my ISA has just run out of date. 

 I'm not looking for long term employment, just another experience on my roadtrip with potential for regular short term contracts.
