  2. Message Me 07796848928 if you think you can help out! Hours 8-430 and needed for truck to chip into and off load! Many thanks! Matt
  3. ok thanks, is it my understanding that this feeds on dead or dying wood?
  4. yes its a tricky one, like the other guy said perhaps build some contacts up, i through subbing for other companies have managed to do that. i tend to work on the ground alot these days and hire a climber in, so i provide ariel rescue should it ever be needed. the other guys on the ground i work closely with and monitor as we go, i think the rule of thumb is that if someone who doesnt hold a cs30,31 ticket is able to use a saw so long as they are in your sight all times and are obviously wearing the appropriate protective gear, chainsaw boots n trousers! good luck with it all, take small steps to start with and just make sure you are organsised whatever route you take, ie cary spare parts and tools, chipper blades ect, the tiniest of breakdowns on the day if not prepared for them can screw a whole day up and cost alot of dosh especially if hired staff are in! all the best
  5. Hi, where abouts are you based? I'm In a very similar position to yrself and more than happy to talk to you regarding your concerns, however off to bed now as up super early! Feel free to message me, no1 Ive found is get staff you can rely on, for example I work as a tv film extra when I'm not doing my own tree work and tbh I use people I work with in the tv stuff....I'd rather have people work for me who I can rely on and I get on with who are unskilled than someone who is skilled and I don't quite gel with! Hope your following me, it is very easy and quick to get someone on the ground trained up and moulded to how you want them to be work wise. My two golden rules are get someone who you know is going to turn up on time if not earlier than u want them and don't skimp on pay rates, I pay my geoundie friends £100 a day and on the day, as a result they turn up on time are keen to learn and put in a good shift, if u skimp on money you'll end up chasing your tail constantly trying to recruit new staff and it's a real headache! Oh and if I were gonna throw in one more rule it would be don't employ a smoker as from Experience all they wanna do is stop for a fag every 10 minutes or roll one up and you'll end up losing about an hours labour out of them a day lol.......good luck and feel free to message me as can probably help you out a lot with advice not that you'll nessassarily agree with it! Cheers, matt
