  7. the reason to not work is simple to me........u cant stop cross contamination to either one of your staff or yourself.. u could pick it up from a gatepost, side of a tree whatever, the virus can live for up to 72hrs, and u could pass it onto the next job u go to....or onto your workmates or take home with you to your family. We are on call for emergency tree work for a client.......which we will do if necessary.....but it will only if its dangerous to the public at large. Keep safe guys...

  20. A small tip..........when the wife has let the fire go down to last few hot embers( happens every night🙄🙄). pull all the embers to the front glass and then put ur logs in....gets the fire going quicker
  21. as side note......I did my first job for Drax the other day, done the full circle
  22. First job on my own was for Shotton Forestry, woodland management side of BSW, the woodland manager was Mathew Rivers who went on MD at UPM tilhill and now chairman at Drax .......was a 1 mile clearance of stika spruce for new forest road at Carsphain......we just had to fell and cut into 2m lengths and stack manually at the side.......when the road was made...timber wagons went along and lifted straight onto wagon...it was the hottest 3 weeks u could imagine........the cleggs were flying at you in battle formation..... after work every day we went to the river/stream for a swim to cool down...the water was nice and warm
  23. i wouldnt worry too much,,,u live not too far from the scottish border..in fact probably was scotland at one time........if u lived south of the watford gap maybe jail time😂😂😂😂
