  1. Cheers for the advice. What length would you recommend if I'm going to tie the eyes myself? No idea what to even roughly go for.
  2. We need to know what rope type and size you're using? Then I'm sure you'll get good advice. Ah good point - it's a Teufelberger tachyon 11 diameter rope for ddrt.

  3. Hello, I'm looking to buy some hitch cord from moneybros for use with a hitchclimber pulley. Anyone able to recommend which type of cord to get, what length, and which type of hitch they use? There's a million different options so just looking for input on what people here think works well for them. Cheers
  4. I'm someone who's read this thread, saw you write some nonsense, and called you out on it. If my post number credentials is the only excuse you have against replying to me then it's clear you have absolutely nothing to back up your argument, and to everyone else here. There really is nothing worse than someone spouting rubbish who can't explain themselves.
  5. Good, we we can all agree you've said something a bit silly with nothing to back yourself up with.
  6. How much does the Forestry Commission pay for cutting work? Is it piecework or hourly? Anyone with experience doing this please say the location as well, cheers
  7. I'm not an arborist, can someone explain to me whats so bad about this job?
  8. Thanks for the reply. Maybe stupid question but what's a subby? Self employed people contracting themselves out?
  9. Hello, I'm interested in becoming an arborist and would like to ask some questions about becoming a tree surgeon in the UK (specifically Scotland) from people who've been doing this for a while. My idea is to join a well established company and work my way up.. no pun intended.. to becoming a climber. I've been working in the forestry department of an estate for 2 years now, have my chainsaw tickets & first aid certs. -Assuming I start doing ground work, how long will it take to progress to becoming a climber? -This will obviously vary from company to company & location to location, but what salary can I expect to earn straight away? What is a reasonable expected salary for a climber? Any personal anecdotal salary evidence welcome.. I'm interested to hear what people's opinions are compared to this online advice: Google returns an average salary of £20k here - https://www.payscale.com/research/UK/Job=Arborist/Salary £25k here - https://www.adzuna.co.uk/jobs/salaries/arborist £21k here - https://neuvoo.co.uk/salary/?job=Arborist This site says an entry job is generally ~£15k, going up to £21k. https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles/arboriculturist .. Skilled arborists can earn between £25-30k. So... How can I get to earning the higher end of the payscale a.s.a.p? JP
