Malc W started following Newbie looking for guidance for work and advancement
Hi Guys, Just joined the forum so not 100% on with how things work but guessing someone will be able to point me in the right direction. I have worked as a sub-contractor doing general land management (including some tree works / assisting) I set up on my own last year and concentrated on general maintenance (grass cutting etc) to get me started. I took my CS30 and have since been cutting fallen trees and assisting with grounds work with arborists when they have felled or pollarded trees for me as part of my contracts. I also sat my basic tree survey and inspection Lantra award this week as I would like to move into surveys and inspections. (I have assisted with 6 other surveys in the past. Any tips on how I can progress and find any work would be really appreciated as grounds tenders I have gone for have not come off and I need to get a focus on something. I really fancy getting into surveys but 1) I am 60 and 2) haven't got cash to invest in more training without having something tangible that will come from it. Hope that makes sense? I am based on the Leicestershire / Warwickshire border. Thanks chaps, any help or suggestions appreciated.
