    Sad to hear the Brighton elms are, I remember being told their survival in the70s had been down to a particularly diligent council tree teamas well as the micro climate
  5. Hav an Aarrow Stratford runs heating n hot water, was 5years old when estate I do work for put some let houses onto biomass, it’s been brilliant apart from the odd issue with keeping glass clean. Have had a couple of other Aarrows without Boulez over the years all been good

    General shortage?

    I think a big part of it is that a lot of youngsters don’t appreciate the mental benefits of a job that is both rewarding and sometimes challenging. Maybe that’s why so many late starters (30/40+) are attracted to the industry? jamallio96 the Lowestoft remark made me chuckle as I spent much of my teenage years in Lowie, ya gotta b motivated to get out[emoji12]

    Sharpening jigs

    Haven’t bought owt from them for a while but they provided good service when I did, not used the diamond files as I was put off by the fact they’re quite brittle n I break things a lot

    Climbing dead trees ? Any bad stories??

    Done a few dead pines that made me ring nip so tight ya couldn’t o pushed a pin in but the one that really sticks in my mind is a 4’ dis cedar of Lebanon that had very few lateral n just a flat, tangled, rotten top where I had t anchor below myself and every time I knocked a bit it made horrible crackin noises below me, When I felled the stick it more crackin noises above n it snapped in free fall just below where my anchor point had been [emoji33]
