  1. I wish I'd thought of that, its maddening to see a good tree ruined, which can sometimes happen.
  2. We do try, but for many its all down to the price. It is horribly when you try to talk your customer out of their mindset of 'pollard my Silver Birch' or 'just take the top out of the Beech tree' then you drive past three weeks later to see it done. Although I do get a little satisfaction when the public decline a quote then phone a while later to ask if you could finish the job and/or clear up all the brash left on the lawn, because the other contractor wanted extra to clear up !
  3. Thank you for the feed back. How far down the line are you with training, qualifications, experience etc ?
  4. Unfortunately yes. I think it may be getting wider tho
  5. I appreciate the feedback, I was beginning to wonder. I guess its not surprising given the lack of apprenticeships being offered and the ever increasing complications on actually doing the job. It makes me wonder what our industry will become. Situations like this isn't good news for the industry. It will push the price up and open the door to unqualified, unskilled, uninsured poor tree work. As a business I feel let down by the Arb Association, they haven't supported the Colleges in the issues surrounding the apprenticeships, and I haven't found any evidence of them promoting our trade to anyone other than to tree surgeons.
  6. Any feed back on the advert? Are there really no climbers out there, nobody that wants to try for a better position or a better wage than they are currently on?

  11. Many thanks for all the support. The details are listed on arbsafe. I doubt I'll ever see it again but if we all look out for each other it will only make things more difficult for these scum bags.
  12. its just the cheek of it, the lads carried the saws down the passage way into the rear garden and put them on the patio to the rear of the house, out of sight, then got on with the job, some scum bag walked up the drive down the ally and into the garden, lifted it whilst they worked at the end of the garden. We are talking 20meters away max! it was only a terraced house garden.
  13. Hi, was thinking about it, just thought the old girl had a bit of time left in her yet
  14. We were out on site today in Cambridge and we had a Stihl MS201T stolen at approximately 10.20. The thief entered the rear garden along our customers driveway whilst we were working within the very same rear garden stole the saw. The police have been informed, the serial number is 175900042 If anyone hears of anything please email on [email protected] reward if returned. Many thanks Paul
