  1. Hi looking to hire a stump grinder or hirer/operator scenario. Hire centres around me all have their machines out, urgently require this week as I have a back log of trees I've taken down but unable to finish the jobs due to no stump grinder. Either coment on here or message me. Ng34 / NG32 areas thanks in advance
  2. Hi just a slow winter, I burned through most my work in the Autumn as I needed the £thousands to finish the house I’m working on this year. Got my project finished, great, but have exhausted my winter bookings so just looking for a bit extra. I’ll do clearance work, straight fells, groundie, brash monkey, hedge work, fencing if required. Can travel anywhere in England for short term work or one offs. Thanks in advance. (I’m in East Lincs)
  3. Experienced climber required couple of days a week in the Boston area (possibly Spalding/Sleaford some days) on a sub-contracting basis. Contact 07365260895 thanks

  5. Hello all, well that's me, I'm done! Unfortunately last year I was in a head on collision & after months of recovering & physio I'm still not much better after suffering from neck, back, & shoulder injuries. So it's time to hang up my harness & physically retire from the industry. I'm moving into a second life long love of mine, photography so I still can remain my own boss. Would be nice to meet people on arbtalk & spend half a day shooting arborists in action, this would be free as it's purely promotional to build up a portfolio & clientele. plus I'm moving into wedding photography so if any of you peeps want a free wedding photographer this year let me know. I have a contract with the local paper so I have a realiable source of income whilst doing free promotional work. Last but not least I'm selling off my kit, saws & trimmers so if anyone is in need of little used kit PM me (purchased new tools in 2015) Mods- Hope I'm allowed to remain on arbtalk given I want to shoot arborist material.

  7. Hi got a number of days hedge topping I'll need a hand with as I was in a head on car crash 2nd August & I'm still not fully operational. I can do a fair amount of jobs but climbing from one conifer to another whilst hedge topping is not something I'm up to. Decent rates of pay, location New York (near conninsgby) LN4. Maybe future work on offer if you impress me!
  8. Hi I'm doing the Cornwall Devon thing this year, for the surfing, biking, walking thing (livin' the dream!). Hoping to pick up a fare here and there for a few pound notes. Living in my camper van so I can drive to site with my own chainsaw & Ppe. Got plenty years of experience and can work pretty cheap just so that I can top up my tank and put food in my tummy. So if anyone has a bit of work here and there let me know. Can work at short notice, well shortly after carving up that half pipe anyhow!!!

  14. Well slap me & call me Suzie, is it that hard to find a climber on here??!! I've been advertising on the employment forum for nearly a month now & not a sausage. Is everyone really busy or have I been sent to Coventry I'm begining to wonder. I've asked around local tree surgeons but they are all flat out can't even spare a 3-4 hour climb which is madness. I'm looking for a preverbiable hot climber like I used to be when I was in my 20's . pay is £50 an hour (most my climbs are between 3-5 hours to give you an idea)
  15. As per title, need a team of two to 3 guys for one day (1 or two climbers & a groundie) with one or two loads of chip away (local chip site available) Got a job to smash in a day, with a good team that shouldn't be a prob but any left over I can cut/clear up by myself. please email with cost. need it done within 7-10 days Job is postcode pe20, I dont mind how far you come as long as you can get there by 9am.
