    Confused. Why would the council fell a tree (or refuse to fell a tree) that is on someone else's land?

    New Sub Contractor Help

    I didn't think city and guilds did arb courses, they only do assessments. Assessments are of limited use if you are new to the industry and need actual training in order to learn actual things.

    Pollard too aggressive?

    Have you ever considered managing your trees yourself? That way you can do the work at whatever time of year you like. I am sure your your property is really nice an' all, but in all honesty, neither UK Power Networks nor their contractors are that excited about paying you a visit.

    Leylandii topping around sub-station

    Just for interest, which region of UK Power Networks is this (a county could do)? It seems worrying overgrown for a domestic situation (but the maybe the landowner has not cooperated with UKPNs planned tree cutting efforts in the past).

    Don't you live in Devon though? I would be more surprised if you did have a problem with speed cameras on the roads that are the other end of the country.

    Best wishes to your family, Mark. Tough times. Dogs are with us such a short time, but they make such a difference. Especially when you need someone to sing to.

    When I was a kid, that is the reply my mum used to give me when I was explaining something and she wanted me to know that she just couldn't give a kippers dick. ...
