    Hardly naive, for years there were rumours about Jimmy Saville. Look what hammered there.

    Royal Wedding

    That bit I remembered wrongly, he went out there to represent them and from what I remember some marines were upset by this as someone who dropped out was representing them.

    Royal Wedding

    First off, I’m not your mate but all three things have been on the news in recent years and weather there true or not who knows but there’s no smoke without fire! Pedo Andrew, have a read.. https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=prince+andrew+pedofile&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&hl=en-gb&client=safari I was wrong about the honery rank, he was sent out there to represent the Royal Marines and armed forces. It was 10 years ago so what I remembered on the news was slightly different. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/theroyalfamily/5533157/Prince-Andrew-criticised-over-flight-to-golf-club-party.html

    He dropped out of the RM and then when it was 30 yrs since the Falklands they gave him some high up rank of the marines, an insult to every marine that has passed out and fought. When Andrew isn’t with his pedofile mate he’s using the royal helicopter to fly around the country playing golf. i have had the pleasure of meeting William in a relaxed unofficial setting and he’s a genuinely nice guy.

    Any arborist serial killers on here?

    A Tree surgery company owner from crowthorne berks killed his partner a few years back and a few years before that a Tree surgeon from Bracknell Berkshire helped his friend dig up a body, chopped it up with his axe to dispose of it. i also know of a frequent poster on here that was arrested for attempted murder but I won’t be saying there name. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4644644/Tree-surgeon-55-stabbed-girlfriend-death.html http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-508180/Men-murdered-mutilated-half-brother-covered-tracks-using-techniques-seen-CSI.html

    Unwanted nocturnal visitors again

    I’ve had the police out to me twice recently courtesy of my neighbour who didn’t like me running my car to defrost it. He told them I was poisoning him with radon and was leaving the car unattended whilst running. They now have me logged under anti social behaviour, work that out when tools are getting nicked left right and centre and all you get is a URN for your insurance company.

    Picus tests, something new for me

    I thought the full kit was about 20k, the Arbotom is about 15k

    Fallen Beech Tree

    I had a large ash come down and was blocking the river, the EA turned up with a 360 and pulled it out. They charged the developer that owned the land BUT there was a lot of history between them. like Steve said, half a day job and looks pretty straight forward. I don’t know where abouts you are in the country or who you got in to give you quotes but either get someone off here to do it or go on to the arb association web site and contact an approved contractor.

    Fallen Beech Tree

    Be careful of dragging the tree about and causing damage to the bank as you might end up with grief from the environment agency. Where I used to live there was a chalk stream running through the property and the EA were hot on what went on on or in the stream.

    ArbDogs? Pics!

    Is anyone feeding there dog RAW? I’ve just got a chest freezer and have filled it with different meat and bones from the abittoir. Previously they have been fed on Orijen.
