  1. Blimey Rich, the long winter nights in Norway are making your posts a bit Bergmanesque! Roll on spring.
  2. It’s why it’s great Mark, no regulation, next to no HSE in domestic. If you know what you’re doing, can take a risk and can bend your back all day, you’ll never be short of money in treework. Anyone who can’t is FoS.
  3. Total bollocks. 20k tops gets you going in domestic tree work, and 95% of the time you’re paid almost immediately.
  4. In that situation I usually cut a new pollard point leaving 1 mètre of the biggest regrowth, maybe 3 or 4 on each old pollard head. Opinions may vary of course.
  5. Looks like a Norway spruce, but the pics aren’t great. Close up of a spray of needles might help.
  6. Good luck! My advice is to try not to burn any bridges with your old employer or any other established companies in your area. Sub~contracting for others is a good way of filling your week till you can get your own client base built up.
  7. Pine TD in Angoulême. If we could have done it in one we would have. Went sweet as you like.
  8. They’re becoming very popular, with a change of chain/bar/sprocket and some exhaust mods they are excellent. My ‘go to’ topper.
  9. Hello, Echo 2511 is lighter (and better)
  10. Now there’s a job spec you never thought you’d see when you started in the industry.
