  1. Did you ever get this sorted? Ha!! Believe it or not the log is still there. Luckily my client is very patient. I had 3 people say that they would do it . Two of them were complete time wasters sadly. The third was unable to help due to his mill not cutting straight, but has done all he can to get it going.... I have ordered a panther mill to do it myself but that was weeks ago.... Are you able to help? I’d rather it done with a Lucas to be honest.
  2. Hi Alec, Near Attleborough. Ive sent you a message. Thanks everyone else for your Suggestions. I use Tim Barber for milling and can highly recommend, but sadly this stem needs bigger equipment for what I want from it.

  7. Thanks for your thoughts all....Its no biggy really, just curious as to others experiences and thoughts...Luckily most of my clients are loyal(so far...). Interestingly these particular clients felt that the letter was intrusive and an inappropriate way to attempt to get work,so it backfired anyway. I like your way of thinking Mark...cheers!
  8. Evening all.I went to do a days work for an established and trusted client today.A nice days maintenance work on some great trees, in beautiful sunshine.The work required was in a conservation area and i had acted as an agent for my client and had received full consent for all works.My client produced a letter from another recently arrived local company,the first paragraph of which was the following.."We have noted that you recently applied for planning to xxxxxxxxx Council in order to work on your trees.xxx would like the opportunity to put in a free quotation on this." My client is happy with us as their regular Arborists, and decided to ignore the offer.I understand that the information with regards to my notifications to the LA is freely available on their website, but personally feel that this is a slightly underhand way of getting quotes, i.e trawling the local LAs lists of applications/notifications for Tree Work, particularly when it is clear that another Arb firm has been asked to be/paid to be an agent. I'm interested to know what others think of this method of attracting business. I know its a cutthroat game, and am fully aware that business can be mean,and that in the scale of human unpleasantness this isn't much to worry about. What are your thoughts please gentlemen?

  12. is there any evidence of fungi..took a spruce down last week with a few insignificant pholliota squarossa fruiting bodies around it and its interior looked exactly like this..sounding hammer had revealed a slightly different tone to the two closely located trees of the same species ...just speculating,but possible.

  22. These symptoms are synonymous with pseudomonus syringae (v.aesculi). Have a look at Bleeding canker of H.chestnut on forestry.gov.uk for information. perhaps look at reducing these limbs as opposed to complete removal.
