  3. Alright guys, I graduated in May with a Foundation Degree in Arboriculture and having been working for a tree surgery company since then, ill be flying out to NZ on a yearlong working holiday visa in early December and will be looking for work. Im eager to better myself as a climber and arborist and learn a lot too. Any help would be much appreciated. PM me or leave a message cheers. Geert Brakel

  5. Hi Rover

    Yes I am Dutch, i was born in Holland to Dutch parents before moving to England, I still have the passport and speak the language much to the banter from my flatmates! I dont think I have any family over in that area but Brakel is not a uncommon name. What brings you to arbtalk? Are you a tree surgeon in Holland? Ive always wanted to go back to Holland to work as a tree surgeon for 6 months or so just for the experience.

     

    Cheers

  6. Hi Geert,

     

    Just wondered if you were by any chance Dutch? I am, and our neighbours were Brakel's (near Emmen, Drenthe)

    Feel free to tell me to bugger off and mind my own business.

  7. Hi guys this is mainly a question for some of the more experienced climbers or anyone really who thinks they could help me out with this question. I am coming close to finishing my Foundation Degree in Arboriculture and I have already done a summers work for a tree surgery company. I know now tree surgery is the career route I want to take and was wondering if anyone had any advice for a young tree surgeon. Any help or advice would be much appreciated, I just want to be good at my job and have a solid reputation. Any help much appreciated Cheers Geert
  8. Hi guys Im doing a P&D portfolio as part of my Foundation Degree in arboriculture and I came across this little fungi on a old apple orchard near to Pershore where I study, any help with the ident would be great, sorry its so small I couldnt get any closer to it, its right in the middle of the picture looks like a small orange ball. Ive tried researching as to what it is but so far no luck, any help would be much appreciated. Cheers Geert
  9. Hey Craig yeah for sure, im just building up my network of contacts in NZ at the moment, whats the name of your company? Do you have any more details, either let me know on this or send me a PM. Cheers
  10. Hi CraigD

  11. Hi guys this is mainly a question for any kiwis or anyone who has worked for treescape in New Zealand. I am currently coming to the end of my Foundation Degree in arboriculture and I wanted to work here in the UK gaining some experience before going out to New Zealand to work as a tree surgeon in December/January. When I asked my lecturer if he had any contacts in New Zealand he recommmended treescape.co.nz as a good company. I was wondering if anyone had worked for this company before and what they were like. I have CS30,31,38 and 39 and was wondering if there were any other skills/qualifications which would make me more employable. Any advice/help would be great.
  12. Hey Gerrit no offence meant I just wanted a second opinion, hahah. Thanks a lot you really seem to know your fungi. What do you do? I am a arboriculture student and we have a project on the moment identifying fungi.
  13. I saw these on a Oak and a Robinia both nearby each other, at first someone told me it was Coprinellus micaceus but I wouldnt mind some confirmation.
  14. Hi guys I couldnt get a bit of help with this ident could I, I found both on a Robinia and a Oak both close by each other I think they are Armillaria tabescens but not too sure.
