  1. Nice vid Don, friction device had a lucky escape?
  2. I’d remove the top 1/3 ie. The V Clearly it has been re.re.re reduced a few times, they’ve tried to leave sap pullers/gone back to live growth, very important on birch. Seen a lot worse.
  3. I’d go for this sort to avoid losing chip space.
  4. All a bit needlessly hostile to the OP imo.
  5. I don’t hate pricing, on a sunny Saturday driving round the countryside I’m quite agreeable, especially if I get the first one or two then I’m on a roll. I quite enjoy hearing other’s rationales and figures. Makes an interesting thread.
  6. Perhaps, but there’s a gate in the photo of the OPs house so some sort of entrance to remove wood etc, take out a panel of fencing, Bob is your mother’s brother.
  7. He’s not wrong though is he? No more than a day. He didn’t say what it should cost, only what it shouldn’t.
  8. Agreed, but youngsters love a bit of a physical challenge!
  9. It’s not the size of the tree (6” or a foot) that determines the price pro rata. It’s an easy enough job but that only means you DON’T put on the pita tax, not that it’s going to be cheap. Its the time and effort getting to and parking in London that costs. So getting into London, setting you truck and chipper up somewhere nearby, getting it down and out of a back garden, then getting it all off site, using a pedestrian grinder to get the stump done. 2k including vat, does seem a little excessive, I’d put it at £1200 plus VAT.
