    Hand mounding

    Trees just planted and left as Is. Good thoughts on the 3/4 soft wood plants though. Ideally I’d like a day at it to see what I could get in

    This is a foot in the door for me job. It’s a massive site with a 3/5 year contract for work in all there’s only 3000 hand mounds to be done which in the grand scheme of things probably worth the hassle for long term benefits. Just trying to devise a fair price which isn’t gonna cost me

    Well given the ground I’d have thought least they could do was let us screef it but apparently has to be mounds. We have an Argo and an access ride above, below and across area needing done. Size of mounds roughly an a4 sheet of paper size would probably do. Really struggling to come up with a price I was thinking anywhere between £0.70-£1.20 But that’s a stab in the dark

    It’s pretty rocky a machine wouldn’t get anywhere near. The section needing done is on the planting plan so I’m guessing it’s gonna need something in it for grant purposes. Personally I’d screef it plant the trees then look at potentially chemical weeding next year but I’m only paid from the neck to the deck so my opinion doesn’t count [emoji23][emoji23]

    I had put the idea of using a mattock to clear vegetation then plant tree but estate wants mounds done by hand. I maybe just go with a ridiculous price so they don’t give me it. [emoji23][emoji23]

  10. Just a quick question to see if anyone knows how much it would be to hand mound. I can remember doing it back in the early 2000s and I’m pretty sure it was 50p per mound........... does anyone know if this is still the case?
