  1. Hi All tree people everywhere, Really struggling with a tender question at the moment. This particular council is asking how we intend to be Glyphosate/chemical free by 2021? That includes eco plugs obviously! They are asking for options and how we intend to phase the use out over the next two years and what we will be replacing it with. Obviously there will be times when stump grinding will be an option but there will be many times when this wont be an option and I am really racking my brains but cant come up with anything that will replace the use of eco plugs/glyphosate. Your wisdom on this matter will as always be very much appreciated and welcome

  3. Hello all, Quoted to reduce some lime trees that where blocking road signage and lamp posts on an estate and needed doing asap as TFL where kicking up a stink with our housing client. When my guys came to do them, two of them where in pretty much full leaf and looking very healthy but one still isn't out and the buds haven't even hinted about coming into leaf yet, I am pretty sure its on its way out. Possibly due to root compaction (both sides of the trees are tarmac'd), but why would this one not make it and the other two look really healthy? There is no visible decay or fungi at the base either. Your thoughts would be appreciated Cheers
  4. Hi guys, Just wanted to ask a bit of advice regarding utility arb. Im based in Sussex and just wondered who you could sub contract to etc in that area? Just looking to expand the business a bit but I haven’t done a lot of line clearance but thought it would be a good avenue to go down to get another team on the road. Obviously don’t want to tread on anyone’s toes work wise, but their seems to be a fair bit of work out there for it. cheers
  5. All sorted and done now mate, took along time to flail a whole field lol Unfortunately couldnt get any tractors up into the area. 5 acres is alot to do 900mm at a time
  6. Hi All, I'm in need of a flail to hire for a couple of weeks to put on a 6t excavator. Does anyone know of a firm in Kent that does them? Its for clearing a lot of willow re-gen and brambles. Willow re-gen in upto 3-4 inch diameter, Has to be excavator mounted as the bank is to steep for the a bobcat style machine Your help would be very much appreciated as I need to get the cost in ASAP Cheers guys
  7. @Wolfthanks for the info, I will pm you know cheers
  8. Hi Guys, thanks for the info, I’m going over there in the summer for a couple of weeks so hoping to chat to a few tree guys out there. Aparently anyone from the Europe can work there for upto 3months without needing a visa. And it shouldn’t be that hard as far as work visas go. Im hoping to be out there in a year, when I was out there last year it did seem like central London prices but the average wage out there for an Arb guy is very high. If anyone else has any info or experiences working out there I would love to hear them. What the work is like etc. all the best
  9. Hi All, hope everyone had a good Christmas. After being unable to move to the USA to work there my second choice has always been Switzerland as my favourite country. Has anyone ever moved there and lived there for Arb climbing work? What’s the quality of pay vs rent etc and good areas to live. Iv spent a lot of time around Bern and the lakes and villages around there and fell in love with it. The pay seems to be pretty good from what I can see, living costs are high though. Mad always, another mans wisdom on subjects are always appropriated. many thanks
