  1. If “The desired effect” was to further reinforce the perception that you’re a habitual liar. Then yes, mission accomplished.

    Future arborist with questions about career in tree work

    Interesting post, you clearly have a grasp of the system over there.

    I was just about getting away with it 20 years ago, I’m not surprised they’ve closed the loophole. No escape.

    how much do tree surgeons earn

    Thoughts? Utter bollocks.

    Your skills

    I was a pretty good centre forward and an accomplished piss artist. I’m only any good at one of those now of course.

    Thanks, tiles are nice but poorly laid (in the kitchen at any rate) the wooden panels are from an 18th century blanket/sewing box I bought at auction for £170 before coming here. Crazy to think it was made by a guy over 200 years ago.

    You’re absolutely right. I make the money on the takedown though, if the sawmill guy who gets it for free makes a little less, tant pis.

    So have I, but measuring on the way down. Not on Erik’s scale though!
  10. Reminds me of something that my mother said at a PTA evening. One of my teachers trying to explain to her about my dramatic downturn in behaviour and marks opined that “Michael seems to have fallen in with some bad company” to which she replied “don’t blame those other boys, it’s him, he’s the bad company” She was right.

    Great vid, precision work. Do you measure the chunks on the way down to reduce wastage, or are you guesstimating?

    Stupid mistakes you've made doing tree work

    Did it ever go on a weighbridge empty?
  13. Wow, that’s an interesting story, qualified medical doctor!
