  3. Given someone has priced it at 5+k I’d say at £460 per man you’d be the guy who’s under priced it and walk away with the spoils. Again I’ll stress we all price differently and I’m only stating that 5shires seems to be copping a fair bit of flack for his price which to be fair is all based off a picture.
  4. Think your getting a bit of unfair stick here!! We all price differently, we all work differently, pretty sure there’s no right or wrong answer here just what your happy taking away in your pocket. Some under value some over value ??‍♂️ If said tree can be done 3 men in 1 day and I stress IF £1400 is good money in anyone’s book surely?!
  5. Johnson’s farm is good it’s on the tip site, we are in the the process of sorting our yard to be accessible to a select few for chip and log to fill bins so I’ll give you a shout when we are ready if you like.

    Lock Down?

    Prince Andrew is trying everything to get out of that FBI interview?
  12. Both ropes are on one harness and on most bread and butter trees both anchors will be close so due to angles the ropes will not be far off side to side near your body and as such if you are cutting chest height or lower if you hit one with a sharp saw you’ll hit both. Good practice negates that but I suppose you could argue most accidents stem from poor practice.
