    TPO Tree v Recently built garage

    I’d send a letter back claiming if the garage damages the tree compensation will be sought.

    I have always pondered on tourist tax, with it being in existence does freedom of movement really exist?

    Starting out

    Courses are self explanatory but you’d be better working for someone else PT and yourself PT to build up your experience, reputation and workflow. When working for yourself know your limits. Yes you’ll need it most days even if you plan on hedgecutting. It also gives you a package to offer other firms ie tipper chipper and 2 men for £xyz Vehicles are different for everyone but the smaller the chip box the more time is spent tipping off and not on the job I have a 3.5 ton van with 1.2 ton pay load and a small van for quoting and knocking around in, May have to swap that soon for a 4x4. Find what works for you and grow change your kit to suit your needs. Don’t be afraid to do other things I.e subby your services, hedge cutting and maybe a bit of maintenance if you can get it as initially you won’t have the reputation to do picture perfect trees everyday and advertising will only get you so much. Good luck I wish you well.

    Anyone know the best rope for Spiderjack??

    On blue tongue at the moment and really like it.

    Anchor system

    I have no doubt that the pulleysaver will be as good as a rope guide but I’m a bit of an anorak with ocd so it would do my nut in to have an art positioner SJ3 and a pulleysaver 🤦‍♂️ Hence rope guide 😂 Same for clothing I’m all arbortec at the moment but that’s about to change given its last-ability.

    I do as they state you can’t get them stuck, I disagree 😂
