    How much money is there down the smoke?

    Not to be recommended - too many drawbacks , high cost of traveling and the thieving is as bad as Essex . But varied work . K

    Trees and drought

    Definately seeing it down here - established mature broadleafs are toasted on the tops , S.Birch actually failing ! New tree plantings with no mulch ( In my view THE MOST important planting operation -Glendales I am looking at you ...) We are on clay here - so thankgod for last nights heavy shower . Soil moisture wont balance out til end of year . K

    Petzl ASAP or DMM Catch in the tree

    Sounds like a chain of failures with staff not using best practise - or any sound practise ! Nothing wrong with single line or double lines in trees ( as long as yr anchored twice fr yr cut . How people store climbing kit is atrocious in most companies ( saws on ropes ) K

    Tree Risk Assessment

    Never too confident of such ( or any systems ) as laziness on the practisioner can be fatal to the systems integrity . Sometimes a good teeth sucking an a fag can let you see more , K

    Blisters from my new climbing irons...help please

    Dont be down hearted ! Gf bought £500 shoes - you know the sort - strappy n lots of heel , basically on wearing they chaffed a lot n needed plasters , on pointing out they were made in China , she took them back , I didn't say much after that ....... K

    First SRT (rec) climb

    I think Drt would have to be used - just as unfamiliarity with the system could fail you on a rescue. K
