    Thanks Steve. I enjoy using this site. I've added a link to ArbTalk on a recent post.
  2. Thought this was an interesting article from Germaine Greer in The Telegraph -- Worth a look. Germaine Greer: Don't panic about ash dieback. Look at the science - Telegraph

    Tree covenant and irate neighour

    That has to be the bottom line. Not only are we supposed to be surgeon's but legally savvy too. In the event of any confusion always cover yourself.

    Odd firewood complaints

    No, I'd agree. Good way to end the day. Too dry and too light are 1's we've heard alot. It's not the most profitable way to spend our time, so we don't re-service 'high maintenance' customers.

    Smoking them out

    That's a new one on me Arb Man Sam. This could purely anecdotal, but if you ever try it, let me know. I'd be curious to know the result

    Starting a Buisness

    That's great advice Ginja. The basics endure. From the outset you to need to balance the books and remember your primary marketing tool is word of mouth recommendations. Develop relationships with experienced peers. Lastly, don't forget your online presence. That's increasingly important in the post Yellow Pages climate.

    Arb & Forestry Event 2012

    I've just seen this event -- Shame we missed it. Axe throwing competitions, tug-of-war and Arb master classes? Sounds great. I'll keep an eye out for times and dates next year.

    The biggest eucalypt in the world
