    If I had to respond to all an sundry slagging me off I'd have no time to get to work, never mind get any work done... Thick retard numpty, yes and even bell end the other day.. I find some insults offensive but thick isn't one of em.. why even princess diana didn't mind being called thick as two small planks.. it was almost said as a term of endearment if I didn't know any better..

    If you use better vocabulary it wouldn't be as bad thick is a horrible way to describe someone think before type and all of these unnecessary comments could've been prevented. What's the difference making a comment regarding capacity to religion or race? its all discrimination and like I said its a open forum so people can look and browse through it and we're supposed to be professionals do you not do work for schools or supported living accommodations because speaking like that would get you kicked off site we live in a equal and diverse universe now.

    Calling people thick? If you had a member of family or friend with a limited capacity or even none would you appreciate someone going round calling people thick? That statement of his could of been worded more appropriately and I wouldn't of reacted it is a open forum even something like undereducated sounds better than "thick" Jack

    my bad back is only apparent after tree work for some reason.... as to a meetup, perhaps one day I'll come down to one of those arb shows one or two on here I'd like show some respect to myself.... My utube watching list has been very interesting over the last few days.. a slew of vids on the indo europeans... and a few about the early roots of christianity.. giving myself a deserved holiday from stressing about brexit see.....

    Is there any need to call people thick? I bet if there was a Arbtalk meet up I'm pretty sure you'd be thick with the amount of folk on here who'd show you some respect and possibly a few contusions aswell you've got no respect for anyone! you hide behind a keyboard giving folk grief on here always watching YouTube with a apparent bad back? If you don't want people's honest answers stop asking questions it's as simple as that!! Jack

    Can't think what it is, trapped nerve comes into play every time I do tree work.. or pulling at things... can't figure it... lift a heavy mower in an out the van all day, no problem....

    so you've got a medical condition? I don't mean mental health problems, but actually some physical damage to the spinal chord? It can't be old age, plenty of posts on here documenting foresters in their fifties and sixties still very quick cutters

    Good job I prefaced my post by saying my mind was fairly simple. Maybe one day i'll get something right

    I can cope with doing it myself, its my back that can't.. no fun walking round like a cripple for three days after faffing in a tree or cuttin down a hedge......

    What your not getting through your thick scull is the owner paid for the reduction on account of the tenant wanted it done.. IE the landlord for all intents and purposes was just the middle man paying out the bills.. the tenant told the owner what she wanted doin, the owner arranged for it to be done.. The tree cutters thought like a lot of idiots on here and couldn't work out the job was being done for the tenant with the blessing of the owner.. if she wanted them to do all the hedge, and not leave some off, she'd of told em to leave some of it alone.. I don't know why, perhaps because she's as thick as some tree surgeons.... Only a moron could look at the whole and figure it mean't part only...

    Not sure what to make of that.. I mean its obvious you'd of done the decent thing and done a proper job.. and yet the need to stick the knife in on account of the job was a hedge.. Not to mention tree surgeons do do hedges, I've seen enough of em round abouts cutting back hedges round here.. or do you mean snobby tree surgeons don't do hedges?...

    I'm fairly simple minded but I think you have this totally wrong. When we work on rental properties 90% of the time the property owner is paying. We will not do any more or less than what is specified. The tenants often ask for bits and bobs, I tell them to ask the owner because we are not touching a thing. In a normal situation where you are dealing with the customer we will do the "can you just........". However when the tenant doesn't own the property, garden, trees, land, hedges etc we will not do anymore that agreed with the owner. The tenants opinion is of no relevance and I would not want to be in a position where we had done something the owner did not want us to do. It should have been sorted during the quote stage and by your own admittance later in the thread they did a good job of reducing the confier hedge, which is probably what was agreed with the owner.

    Some Tree Surgeons Suck......... Tree surgeons don't do hedges that's a gardener's job. I was a gardener years ago and we used to trim hedges and prune small trees if they were in the hedge. All in a day for us working on an hourly rate.

    buying a tower scaffold

    I hired an aluminium tower to do a chimney on the house. You climbed up the inside of the tower and lowered trapdoor as you went up. It took me and a lad to build it no problems and cost £50 for the week. If I was buying one I would go for one of those.

    buying a tower scaffold

    I had the Youngman its the best industrial one going I bought it refurbished from a firm in Bradford for not much more than Zarges Tubesca 7 are advertising for they are mainly DIY also it did not state the SWL of it has to be 150 kg in my previous life I was a fully qualified scaffolder and came across quite a few different makes but the Youngman was the best and easiest to erect

    Tree planted close to the house

    Hi all, just after a bit of advise. I am in the process of buying a house and after an inspection was done recently the bank have requested an arboriculturist report. I think this is due to what looks like an olive tree planted very close to the back of the house. The tree isn't very big, maybe 4 or 5 ft high. Can anyone comment if this is likely to have caused damage? If the sale goes through I plan on removing the tree. But the bank need satisfying with a arboriculturalist report first. Many thanks

    There's one on gumtree for £240 if you want one to play with instead of waiting for the warranty to run out on a new one.
