    Pigeon Shooters

    He’s right though, you couldn’t make it up a story like that, what on earth do those idiots at Natural England now about country sports and field craft? Pigeon models scaring off birds!! They also suggest you put out a life like scare crow and occasionally swap places with it. 🤣🤣

    Canine megaesophagus.

    That’s so so sad I feel for you all. We lost our 2 year old GSD Mac not long back from bloat, it happened so quick. We had trained him to do personal protection and he went everywhere with me. I cried like a baby for days as did my wife and kids. I’ve got a new boy now and it’s helped heal the hurt and loss. I’m feeling your hurt.

    Post your stump grinding photos

    I’ve had that machine for years now, I can’t fault it, I had it fully remoted not long ago its good to be able to operate it without the umbilical.

    Large tree very close to house

    I wouldn’t be too concerned about that tree causing any structural damage to the property, for one it’s not a large tree, it’s also a species that doesn’t have a massive root structure. I would recommend removing it due to the crown encroaching onto the fabric of the building. Cost between £350- £480, price depends on whether you have the stump removed or not

    Brother arborists - Stolen Ford Transit

    Sorry to hear that. They are the scum of the earth.

    Brother arborists - Stolen Ford Transit

    Its a very common occurrence now, its so disheartening, I hope that you recover it with no damage. The people who do this are so heartless, and as for the individuals who have the gear off them they are even worse, without them scumbags it would not happen.

    Dream of starting my own business achievable?

    A local council up here offers private consultancy, something I’ve always considered a bit open to suspicion.

    Telecom lines

    The other option that we often use is to do the work with a MEWP if access allows.

    Looks like a great idea, but I don’t like the idea of trusting it, whats it like in wet or icy conditions? If it ever goes wrong then good by.
