Part of it is due to the 'youth of today' for sure, I mean who wants a manual labour job these days?

With very few exceptions, most tree surgeons seem to be of a similar ilk and share very similar character flaws. Maybe we expect too much. Discuss

If I couldn't earn money through manual labour I'd be snookered. I've got a good knowledge of what I do but I'd be knackered if I didn't turn out for the job day or night, I'll be in Canary Wharf tommorow morning at 6am, do I want to go there?, no, needs must though.

Lots of jobs about at the moment, best employment figures for years apparently.

 

Sweating your nuts off around trees and chippers for buttons isn’t on the top of many young men’s to do list.

Is that not a contradiction?, if we have the best employment figures  for years surely those looking for a job won't be able to find one because the positions are already filled.

This . I grafted until I was Way past 60 . We had a few lads come and go but I just continued at my pace , in the end getting much more done than the lads that  set off at 100 mph and were shot to bits by mid morning . Had one lad that was all this and that . Lent him my 372 to ring up some ugly lumps . He said my saw was crap . He had some how made the chain de rail and had put it on back to front . There was nothing he did not know . I just plodded on till the job was done . I am an old git .
