  1. A medium beech with merip we removed today and one of a few birch we took out in a woodland tree belt.
  2. A few months ago we had the website overhauled and a new one built. Feedback is always welcome. Tree Surgeons Norwich & Norfolk | Target Trees™ TARGETTREES.COM Tree Surgeons Norwich & Norfolk. We are professional tree surgeons operating in Norwich & Norfolk. We offer a highly experienced professional tree surgery & arborist consulting services.
  3. By the sounds of it you could be in breach of ir35 and on 2 days a week would owe your guy 5 days holiday a year, plus pension and tax to pay to hrmc. If he does 5 days a week then you certainly will be. The Gov website has loads of information on it to be fair and I would check that out.
  4. Pricing - Pear Technology WWW.PEARTECHNOLOGY.CO.UK The Pear Technology price lists for all software, hardware and services
  5. Hi everyone, I'm after a bit of advice as I'm updating my surveying. I've been looking at pear technologies and wondered who uses them and what package you use. I will be using it for bs5837 and tree condition surveys but became slightly confused if I only needed Pt mapper Pro, Pocket cis Trimble tdc100 4g I wasn't sure if the tree minder or maplink were needed to start with. They can always be added on later. I appreciate your time and advise on this, Ian
  6. Travelling from schiphol to goes it was everywhere and has just decimated some copse and woodlands we drove past. Significantly more prominent than I've seen in Norfolk (of which I thought was bad, but now thinking not as bad). A friend seems to be spending a lot of time removing Ash over everything else.
  7. [emoji23][emoji23] In Holland it was its 40th year. I expected to see Bob the MD in Emea and a few others from across Europe but for some reason I didn't expect the actual vermeer family members to be there. I call it my naivety moment.
  8. Not a today post but were currently in the Netherlands until mid this week. So here's a few pictures of what we've been up to. Meeting Bob Vermeer was an incredible thing for me, he sits down starts chatting away and I had to do a triple take at his name badge. I hope you all enjoy and some pictures aren't arb related but more machinery.
  9. Pretty much [emoji23][emoji23] she said can I take a picture of her stump grinding. Her fault she did not specify where I would take it from. Crane wise I just get a cost to see if it comes in cheaper than multiple days rigging and being less efficient in all honesty. If like in this case the crane was solely based on having it on the neighbours property and they hadn't asked yet. So they get 2 estimates 1 for with the crane, 1 for without. I don't do many to be honest though. The neighbours were happy for us to have access but didn't like the idea of having a crane on their drive. It would of been fine with boards to be honest.
  10. Some pictures from the last 3 days on site. 3 cedars to take out and I wish the neighbours had let us put a crane on their driveway.
  11. I saw this on site today and was quite amazed by how the ivy had split the buttress of this Victorian wall.
  12. A bespoke piece Mark [emoji108][emoji108] my city council spent 40k for an rsj to be put in the ground. Apparently it symbolises our industry. There I was thinking Norwich didn't have anything to do with steel or any industry of worth.
  13. We decided to clear out most of the yard as we started to lose working space. 7 loads of woodchip and 3 arb waste wood. I was really impressed with the loader and how good an experienced operator is on one of them.
  14. We extended a rooting area of a redwood today. I didn't have much space to play with regarding being able to build the ground level up. So I went for clean sand and washed crushed stone with the idea of the sand being porous but able to be compressed over the rooting area and the a layer of stone to bind the top layer. Not done anything like this before so I'm keen to know if and what I could of done differently should I be asked in the future.
