  1. Hello.

     

    Hope all is well. I have noticed in you post a fair few picture and comments on here and so if you do not mind, could I ask a question or two?

     

    Ideally what I would like to know or gain info' on is how to get in to the USA. I currently live in sunny England (cumbria).

    I am 28years old, currently have a three years of experience of studying in forestry management and arboriculture. I have clean driving licence, chainsaw tickets (cs30, 31 and 38) as well I have brush cutting tickets , first aid and manual handling training. I have worked for a great contract climbing gang here (as part of my education) and currently work part time for a local forestry company doing all sorts of works/planning.

     

    Would you know or expect this to be enough to gain employment within the US?

    Do you know of any one taking people on or looking for staff at the moment?

     

    Regardless, love some of your pics you post on here.

    All the best and safe climbing.

  2. Here are some stumps I did a while back. They were Eucs that had been cut down several years ago and of course were quite dry and hard. [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyTmRoEdupA]YouTube - New grinder motor sutliff rd.[/ame]
  3. I'm on a roll now. Here is a melon field, probably cantaloupes and then as I headed through the coast range to visit my uncle a picture of Pleasant Valley State Prison and a shot of the road going through the hills. Then I ran out of space on my camera.
  4. I'll try it again. drove down to my kid's place in Huron and I snapped some pictures of the farm fields around there. A little different than your picturesque British farms. The first one shows the typical pump station. The water comes in an underground pipe to the blue pipe. It is pressurized by the diesel pump and goes out through the drip tubing. The second one shows an onion field starting to lay down. These are onions for making onion powder. The third is an almond orchard. The fourth is a cotton field that has just emerged. The last one is a wheat field that looks to be ready to harvest.

  6. I'm probably 5 hrs drive from there. Someone from LA would be pretty close.
  7. Job I did earlier in the week for an irrigation district.
  8. Excellent looking projects guys. I've recently begun turning and should have something done in a week or so.
  9. We recently trimmed the trees for our local post office. Mostly ginko with a few raywood ash.
  10. Incredible. I thought this was about raising owls.
  11. Work is kind of hard to come by here also. I have about one climber a week call me looking for work.
