    Thats one lucky cyclist!

    Thankfully no one was hurt. But put simply those involved in this incident should not & have no right to represent our industry, though I have the feeling they were likely sent back out the next day rather than being sacked!!

    If you were just starting out....

    Slightly confused by the post. If I have understood you correctly you may be thinking about becoming a Arborist/Tree surgeon? Both are quite a different beast, all are educational! In my past life I also climbed and taught on rocks to a international level, can I climb trees and deal with heavy lumps of wood, nope! Its exhausting!! I would say the two skill sets (apart from minor rope knowledge) are completely different. Money wise I think the guys on here have been very generous with the amount of money its costs at grass levels to get involved within the industry. Taking into account training, equipment & basic set up I think you should forget 4-5 k. I would say go on some courses, link up with companies, learn and see how it goes.

    Moving to Wales

    Due to my wife wanting a change of life, my family may have a chance to relocate to the general area of Brecon. I would therefore have to relocate my tree surgery business to this area. Wondering if any of you guys live in the general and wider area (Hereford, Hay on Wye etc) and if so could give me a feel of the market in terms of work load etc. Thanks.

    Conservation refused advice required

    No dramas. I put on average 5ish applications in each month I would say give or take and over a fair few different councils but this is a first for me. Also I conduct work to others spec which also has been in %. Always learning!

    Conservation refused advice required

    Hi All, I have had a refusal back from a local council tree officer. The reason stated was rather than me stating that I intended to reduce the trees canopy by 20% (which I have always used successfully in the past), I now need to express my intentions in metres. Whilst i feel this is a bit petty obviously I will resubmit as advised. Can I ask if you all use metres and also for those converts amongst you whats 20% = what in metres!!
