    Agency for tree workers ?

    Or may I suggest contacting someone like CTC Recruitment... click in the great big banner in blue at the top of this page. There used to be Arbjobs but not sure if they are still going.

    A bit like the version of the Game of a thrones theme tune that just say the ‘person of small stature’s’ name over and over.

    Sub contractor but also team leader

    I have said this before a hundred times. It makes the clarification a lot simpler. Do not call yourself a ‘subby’ if you’re labour only. Use the term contract climber or freelance whatever. Leave the term ‘subby’ for the bona fide boys (or girls). It is pretty clear if you look at it like that. Stop making a relatively straight forward situation more complicated.

    TW125 stolen in Kent

    They are all great when they want your money. Have you had any claim with them?

    Great work Reg. I bet you slept well after working in those woods.

    what's up with swearing?

    The initial quote was a bit off the mark... But then again it is just a story.

    Decent spiking boots

    I use Baseline Alloys. Maybe they are thinner at the bottom of the shank.

    I think you got barred for spelling it wrong.

    Matty, does the addition of the material actually make that much difference? Cheers.

    Second the Andrews. I will be getting another pair when these give up.

    150 ft Redwood Removal - Italy

    Erik has a thread on here with some of his work. Not sure if the teeter totter is in there. Erik, I didn’t mean to answer in your behalf but it was just in case you didn’t see Georgio’s question.

    Top-handled chainsaws: appropriate use and management

    Are you onsite in this scenario? sounds like a se climber has come in to help you out therefore you are required to have the EL in place. he is a freelance labourer not a bona fide sub contractor.

    Top-handled chainsaws: appropriate use and management

    I agree with what Mark and Steve said. However, I also used to carry my own Income protection insurance... just in case. That was just piece of mind and common sense IMO and not a legal requirement.
