    Communication Skills for the Arb Industry Course

    So £200 pounds for a one day course to learn how to talk to others on a job? Not sure this is something a course can teach more down to peoples personalities?
  8. Im impressed by how sharp his tools are, billhook one swipe to go though the hazel stakes The bit where he is cutting the hedge at the end with the slasher looks nearly as fast as a petrol hegde trimmer...

    Some Snowdrops daffs & gorse all in flower
  15. I think this a simple 30 min job. Step ladder, silky, pry bar, & loppers, cut all ivy round trunk, just leave rest above & it will drop off on its own eventually or am a missing something? Try this first & if it all doesn't die then so what though probably 90% will, & you can always go back to the tree again etc if some rogue piece has rooted in a hollow & stays alive or just leave that.... Or if you want to make big job out of it spend ages removing it all...... Beware ivy dust can be is nasty/itchy or maybe thats just me ....
