Tree work in colder countries

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to head over to Sweden in the future. I have been climbing for 4 years mainly on powerline work although I have done some private work. I would be intrested in working on the railways over there so was wondering if you could or anyone else let me know what the work is like on the railways in Sweden.

Alot dpends on the the main company on the contract - i've worked on and off the rail alot for the last 3 years - It can be relaxed pace at times but other times you have to crack on. Taking big bits when needed but then also making sure as hell nothing falls on the lines or track. There are rules and stuff that are made up by people who have no idea of how to do the job and planning is often useless....but you get paid by the hour and you just deal with the other stuff. Sometimes it gets a bit dull with just taking the weight off spruce trees for the ground fellers, ups and downs really. I hate it and love it....
