Would have thought >£12/hr more like a fair rate for that sort of work especially in Kent, plenty of work for unskilled workers at >£10/hr these days.

£10 an hr you will probably get some one who does about 5-6 trees in the day, smokes about 10 joints and thinks he has had a busy day. 

I would like to know what saw is provided ?

who supplies the fuel n oil ? 

who supplies PPE ?

The cost of a 5 day training course in UK for trees up to 38cm is likely to be >£900 with assessment plus PPE another £400 if not provided and then 5 days lost work time while training say >£450, compare that with jobs paying £10/hr that don't involve expenditure of about £2000.

When I used to say similar things to the above 10 years ago I used to get slaughtered around this parish with absolute nonsense like, the industry won't stand it. It was bollocks back then like its bollocks now. The OP only wants to pay £10/hour because he knows he can get away with it. 

 

If I'm wrong this industry wants a good kicking into 2021.
