  1. Easy couple of crane dismantles from today: VID_34400131_195852_357.mp4 VID_34400203_023600_587.mp4 VID_34400204_020438_280.mp4
  2. You can help yourself get a better price by moving it all up to the gate, and stacking it with the butts (wider ends) pointing towards the access. Remove anything with metal or roots attached. Do the leg work and whoever does it doesn't have to spend any longer than necessary.
  3. I think you'd be lucky to get it done for that in London. Most tree surgeons hate chipping waste created by other people. There's plenty of quiet tree surgeons at the moment though so I might be wrong. Your best bet would be to find a local Facebook group and post on there, you'll get a few bites I'm sure. Maybe go through the pile and remove any thing that isn't strictly branch wood before you post.
  4. As I've said before, you could learn from the better qualified posters in this thread, if you had a mind to.

    What can I say, I take my wanking seriously.

    Tornado contour avengers. Around £2 a pair and grippy as you like. I buy packs of ten as you can burn them out in a week or so
  7. Fair enough, just curious if it would've been more or less than me. Well done anyway 👍
  8. Absolutely. I can totally see why they would. A genuinely interesting thread for a change!
  9. Like I said, I'm far from an expert on the matter. The OP has stated there are no TPOs on the trees affected. So he can do anything with them without the involvement of the LA. He could top, fell or even several the roots lawfully if he so chose, but now they're planning permission in place he has to jump through these hoops? It doesn't make sense. To the OP, might well be more cost effective to remove the nearest tree prior to submitting anything more to the council. Could you perhaps post photos of the trees to give us an idea?
  10. I'm by no means an expert on the subject. I'm surprised you had to go to the extent of an arb survey for trees that weren't protected by a tpo or CA. It wouldn't be the first time planning officers have acted outside their remit. If they aren't protected you can basically do what you like to them whether it's felling them to make way for your extension, or simply by ruining them with the proposed works. I think you need a second opinion, preferably by a qualified surveyor with no conflict of interest.
  11. Come on then, how much did he charge and was it a straight fell?
  12. Why are the pieces so small Mark? Looks like most of the could've been hand balled. Surely that's not the machines limit?
  13. Insta would be better, he's most active on there. https://instagram.com/dbtree?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y= Or his website is: https://www.treesolutionsfiji.com/
