  1. Windrows provide a huge resource for the small mammals which in turn help the predators and this continues up the food chain. Sterile closed canopy woodland is best for your bank balance but a bit of diversity can’t be a bad thing can it?
  2. Courant Pop Throwline Bag - Climbing Equipment from Gustharts UK WWW.GUSTHARTS.COM Buy Courant by Pop Throwline Bag from our Climbing Equipment range - @ Gustharts
  3. Arbor Venture Training Arboriculture Courses and Assessments WWW.ARBORVENTURE.CO.UK you won’t go wrong with these guys in the new forest
  4. A long handle Grapple will help
  5. Yes they will work on a tripod ladder. Not quite as well as on the floor tho 😂 occasionally the bars at the bottom of the harness will hook in the steps if Side on to the ladder but coming up a inch frees it no bother
  6. I use a ct foot ascender as a knee one. Just undo the section of webbing that goes under your foot, put a tool clip on it and hook to a foot loop, put some padding on the back (I still need to do this) and put it on round your knee, all for around £30. been using this for a couple of years, with a foot ascender on the other foot. The one shown with the fixed link between foot and the ascender looks bulky and will get in the way in the tree.
  7. 🙄 the yoof of tomorrow 😂

    Where am I ?

    Looking at the Isle of Wight
  9. Check the bar doesn’t have a bur on the side from getting hot and a lack of oil, his can make a saw feel blunt as it hold the chain away from the wood. Easy sorted with a flat file just check the top of the rails are at 90 deg
  10. Find work with a decent crew and you will learn in time, take all the chances your given to practice/learn and watch what/how others do things. Most good climbers have good experience on the ground first so don’t worry about starting there
  11. A second person on a pitch fork to pull them away once cut makes this very quick👍 We also cut bramble “cubes” out with the hedge cutter and remove with the pitch fork

    Well said Mr P. If I had known I wouldn’t of let my fone update either 😤 the cost of the app is almost irrelevant as it’s easier than a book and always in your pocket
