  1. Hi Just wondering if there's any members of the chartered institute of horticulture on here? Thinking of joining to help broaden my area of work. Not sure how much benefit it would be though? Many thanks Tree

    Vegetative propagation of Monkey Puzzles

    I have the woody plant propagation book, had a quick look and it's based on field sown seed propagation. Also had a look in the grower nursery stock manual. Copied the section below.

    Vegetative propagation of Monkey Puzzles

    You used to be able to buy seed from Chilton seeds, a mail order seed company. Are you dipping the cuttings in rooting hormone powder? A heated propergator sounds good, I would assume a high humidity is needed but as already stated the media needs to open/free draining

    Wood pellets instead of road salt

    Think grit is used in Canada to, stone chipped window screens is the problem with grit though. Wood chip may not be suitable for wide spread use but I'm sure there areas where it could be used, may be pedestrian areas or car parks etc? But unless the price drops than it probably won't get used

    Is Carillion The Start Of A Wild Fire?

    Looking on the amey website (sad I know) they had a part goverment contract with carillon, now amey have the full contact. Also didn't know that amey isn't UK owner either. Keir another big one, doing well it appears to be
  9. Was the owner not lucky no one was injured or killed? I know we don't know the full extent of why the tree failed. The national tree safety groups publication common sense risk management of trees gives good guidance to home owners on thee duty of care of there trees, which a prudent home owner should be aware of. I know we don't know the full story and yes there's lots of tree owners tree owners who don't do anything with there trees at all.
  10. Interesting how the home owner thinks he was lucky as its only damaged his lawn and hedge. Guessing he hasn't read any of the national tree safety group publications

    Power line shutdown

    Wpd tried to charge me for a shutdown saying it's your trees and you should keep them clear, but I did point out they have a statutory obligation to maintain a set distance. The open phase was arcing in the wind. They came out and cleared the minimum to max it safe. Try reporting issues as safety issues and tree cutting request rather than a shutdown request.

    Writing a tender.

    Never written one but seen many, obviously it can be a fixed price or frame work agreement. Your work specs need to be focused, not open to interpretation. I know there is standard used for some high value government tenders and I believe depending on the value. I have some previous tenders, if you drop me a pm i can email them over?

    Statutory powers

    True but with the electricity the is a statoury clearance given for the voltage set in 43-8, I think. Just think the a little clarification is needed within the act, given the growing demand for mobile phones etc

    Statutory powers

    True also only applies tpo and ca. Within the communication act 2003 it doesn't state about trees but refers back to the 1984 act. But no given distances or no power to access either, although I could of miss read it

    Which subsidence course?

    Hi Not done the subsidence 1 day workshop at treelife, but from the courses I've done I would certainly recommend treelife, good atmosphere, there very approachable with a very high level of knowledge and experience. Never been on any AA so can't really comment

    Amey are employing bouncers in Sheffield!

    From what I've seen of the contract if targets aren't met or obligations met then it results in a penalty, it can either be service points or a financial penalty which is deducted from the money paid to the contractor (amey). Yes I know with some government contacts it's not always easy to take back.
