    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!!

    Google Ad Words

    Does anyone one use Google Ad Words to target areas outside the reach their SEO area, if so how much is the monthly budget and any tips on targeting etc. I ask because I have just had a quote from a company saying I should spend 30 pounds per day on Ad Words and 595 plus VAT for a management fee of this process! Thats a lot of money to me and my business in relation to monthly income. Thanks

    Multi one loaders

    Good thread thanks for the steer. Could I just ask is the 5.3 a middle of the road model, suitable perhaps for a smaller business model like mine?

    Multi one loaders

    Hi Mick, Not planning on anything outside Arb at the moment. Standard residential & some small scale commercial type work currently. However looking to the future with business expansion in mind. All the decent wood from removals I keep as I run my home 90% from it and therefore I like to bring the cord back as big as possible to my yard for processing, hence a decent lift required. That enough info?

    Multi one loaders

    Hi All, I am going to buy a loader to replace a old tractor I currently have, thinking Multi one. I want this for arb work, lifting heavy logs, trees etc. The problem I have had in the past is finding a decent log lifter for my tractor. I want something that can cope with heavy lifts, rough ground and will no deform the ends of the grapples etc. So one of the questions I have is does the multi one cope well and last? Not sure what series I would consider, will find out more about the cost this week however whats the minimum model, in your opinons that should be considered suitable for general arb work? Thanks
