    What are you using to make it Mark? What exactly do you mean when you say E-flyer? If its what I think you mean, I've used Mailchimp for marketing via email its free and easy to produce professional corporate looking sendouts. It's also good for tracking clicks and reads and allows you then to follow up on interested parties with calls etc. Although I normally address any contact I have directly to the people i'm interested in talking to then follow up with a call in the least spam like way possible as white washing contacts can de-value potential. Although having said that, currently i'm playing the 'throw enough at the wall' game and something will stick!

    Chas or construction line?

    I think it depends of the scale of your company, the client base and probably a whole host of other factors as to how much can be gained from being a member. Audits aren't fun and Its not for everybody. Being involved in audits with SSIPs and industry bodies shows a level of transparency and discipline. Both factors useful in tendering for larger contracts. Its down to the individual to decide how useful it is for their own business. Generally speaking, having previously worked for an AAAC and managing the audit process for the AA and ISO schemes it's always been another string to the bow when tendering, quite a serious one at that.

    New Laser scanning technology can help 'weigh' trees

    Its sounds impressive, previous posts highlight the potential limitations. Regarding species, this depends on some additional "boots on the ground" assessments of the survey area. Hollow trees? probably not is the answer as its difficult to say when your standing in front of it let alone with lasers! Years ago I used to joke with one of my brothers that you can literally do anything with lasers and everything should have a laser. It appears, that from measuring gravity from space, trees, Lidar to name a few, my joking is now with some foundation.
