    the 'todays job' thread

    Coor, what a cedar mick. A mixed bag of works this week for me. Taking out some populars in a church that were in decline and a call out to a large oak that collapsed.

    Just their time really, remove and replant. Mostly pretty happy in fairness. Got 24 bottles of beer off one homeowner too.

    Only really if I have some free time. Which is normally after work and i just take it out for a fly about to see the world from a different point of view.

    Way too heavy for her, the grounds soild so the timber lorry is happy to drive on and collect.

    Spent 2 days and a morning on this site. Decided to close it down at 10am as we're ready for the timber lorries next week. So had an afternoon sorting kit out. Nice easy job, trucks close by and the skid steer moving branches.

    I'd never get it back if I did.

    When you get asked for a favour by your dad to drop a few trees at the local rugby club. I felt so bad I'm lending them the greenmech to clear it up tomorrow.

    Craned out beech

    Just leggy limbs Steve, I think the heaviest bit was a ton. We also had loads of time so no rush as the timber lorry was arriving at 1pm.

    6-7 hours to complete the whole job. Wasn't a huge tree just a pain.

    Yeah it was all included in the price thankfully and always handy to have an extra pair of eyes watching over the lifts.

    We got a crane in on this job because it was vastly more efficient than rigging and blocking it down and extracting as the garden with objects below we a bit of a nightmare. Took it nice and easy as we had the time on it which was nice for a change.

    A few from this weeks project, clearing out laurels and hollies as part of a regeneration project. We had an ecologist and wildlife inspector on site to help the works progress. Also as you can see had a few bits on demo. Honestly didn't think there was too much between the loaders. Multiones panels were much better with the rhino coating. Hope you enjoy.

    Hi Mick, How do you rate the Multione? I've got a demo on site next week and was curious to know your views. [emoji106]

    Just a few recent bits and bobs. In fairness I've been taking a step back off the tools, heavily reducing my climbing as the lads are able to do it. Just looking at replacing the skid steer and digger so when I'm needed I can sit on my bum and be helpful.
