  3. Hey All, Long time no speak (sorry) For all you AA members who have received this email, just a gentle reminder. For all those that haven't and you are interested in airing your views at the North West AA Regional Group you are invited to come along. See details below Cheers:001_smile: Good Afternoon, You may be aware of the work of the AA North West Regional Group that began just over two years ago to try and raise the profile of the Association and encourage social and networking events in our part of the country. Currently operating as an extended arm of the Northern Branch we have been successful in bringing a number of roadshow and independent training opportunities to the North West over the last 24 months. We (the current Committee) are now seeking to invite new interest, ideas and to improve the social aspect of the Group. I would therefore like to invite you to a meeting at: Risley Moss Nature Reserve in Warrington (WA3 6QX) on Wednesday 20th May 2015. Proposed meeting time: 18.00-19.30 An agenda is as follows and will be firmed up ahead of the event but core topics of discussion will include the following: - Committee Members & Structure - Proposals for the Northern Branch AGM - Events held / Events to be held If you are interested in coming along and helping promote arboriculture in the North West I would appreciate you sending me a quick email confirming this, even if your plans change nearer to the time so that I can gauge potential numbers. Kind Regards Jonathan Smith Principal Consultant Arboricultural Team Manager [email protected]
  4. Just two little tasters. Words cannot put into reason the trip as a whole
  5. Cheers guys. I do try to get on, but with the job and the kids getting older into more activities and clubs, I end up playing taxi. By the time I get in at night I'm goosed haha. One thing the new job had helped with though is the collation of pictures. I don't want to release half a job, but I'm a perfectionist I'm afraid. I'll get there, and when I do, I'll need testers I'll try to get on more often too
  6. Website is there in the background, but it's taking a lot longer than I anticipated. I will release it eventually though
  7. Hi Julian, I recently undertook an exam ran by the BSBI (Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland in case some of you didn't know) and gained a level 3 qualification allowing me to do partial Phase 1 habitat Surveys. I'm sure there may be other routes too, but this one is worth looking at (and possibly right up your street!) BSBI Bats however, is a whole different board game. Our Ecologists have to do years of training events, CPD's, surveys under supervision and hours and hours of on site time before they can even begin to think about becoming a bat surveyor. Worth looking into though if you have the time and energy
  8. Not bud scar. Leaf scar. Its the place on the twig where last year's leaf was before it fell off. The scar is what is left when it does fall off. The bundle scars are the little dimple type things on the leaf scar. Close up of that would be a real help Sent from my GT-N7105 using Arbtalk mobile app
  9. I don't thin kit is Frisia due to the lack of thorns. Think more along the lines of Fraxinus pennyslyvanica, or Phellodendran sp., or Juglans cinerea, or Rhus sp, or... I'm working on it
  10. Hah, I can picture it now:thumbup: Sent from my GT-N7105 using Arbtalk mobile app
  11. I like the way you're tied into the piece you're cutting too! Here's my caveat! JOKE! for all those lacking a sense of humour:lol:
