  1. I’ve had this. It’s 2.5m to gutter height, if that’s any help. Just call your local planning dept and ask. Say you are considering building a shed in the garden.
  2. If you can get info on finances and history then do it. It amazes me how many people don't, like the Gov'.
  3. Or a disgruntled parishioner.
  4. Go and sub for some other people at what you want or higher. Don't put all your eggs in one basket with the current employer. Get your name out there re sub' climber and get going with your own thing.
  5. Horrabridge Mark, just outside Plymouth With a bit of luck there might be a couple of people on here who could help you out, if you were closer to me I'd try. Your first post was frustrated but with a bit of advice you have a clearer picture of what you should be doing. You need to bin this 12 hour day and get a fresh perspective, keep plugging away at it and good luck to you.
  6. If I was guying the tree to reduce risk of failure I would be seriously considering another option. As suggested previously use your drill and excavate a bit around the buttress roots to get an idea of extent of decay.
  7. The crane would be the quickest way of getting it and yourself down, prob' require an extra body on the ground to process. MEWP cheaper, you can rig or cut and chuck. If you rig look at ways of diverting loading through the crown and use friction at the top with rings etc, you can easily terminate the rope to use as speed line when required. Look at the rope and pinto set up. Your grounds man will soon find his feet letting pieces run. Try and build a rapor with a larger company for jobs like this if you are a small firm? Do what suits you and explain the process to the client. Remember no one is holding a gun to your head. Good luck
  8. It's the tying of hands that's the hard part. When you ask a professional to undertake a task why make stipulate how to go about It when they have no understanding of the work. Although from my experience on both sides of the fence the companies offering the work often require nothing more than PL insurance, we seem to be the knuckle draggers who just cut trees. You are right though if that's the way it is and there is a safer way to do it then highlight it in your method statement and risk assessment.
  9. I had a side strop made of that, bad enough:(
