  1. Also known as the perfect employee
  2. Isn't this what people do anyway?
  3. This one I've got nailed down already. Trying my hardest not to use it though.
  4. Is there any priority you'd put things in out of curiosity? Cheers
  5. Is there any way to combine this with my new love of raking? But thank you. I feel like I'm forever nagging for direction and things like this help me be useful without asking.
  6. Well all of that sounds like a whole load of fun. Would D1E give me C1E, or would I have to do both seperately? That could be a fun day out.
  7. Guess I've got the next date night sorted when things start opening back up.
  8. Pardon the ignorance, and I could probably answer this question if some mild googling, but are there any major benefits of it? I already have D1 and maintain CPC through my other job, and don't want to invest more in the driving than I have to.
  9. Guess I love raking now then. Cheers for the input. I hope one day to gain enough stature to maintain eye contact with our climber. Not for too long though....
  10. Yeah, I realise nobody will be looking for me to chime in for a while but it's nice to know what's going on and why people are doing what they're doing. I also really like getting nerdy with ropes. Are you saying I shouldn't be posting this from my phone while the other guys are working? Seems like my E licence might have to happen sooner than later. Cheers!
  11. Thanks! They're all straight on the reading list.
  12. Tree climbing is next on the list to do, but I'm pretty happy with SRT and ropework already. That said everything I know is in a different context. Any good books/youtube tutorials you'd recomment? My tree ID is growing, so far I'm just using Collin's Tree guide and apps. Is it worth learning latin names for trees too? I've not a clue where to start on relevant health and safety and fungal ID though. Cheers for pointing out areas for development.
  13. Hi folks, I'm in my late 20s and slowly trying to move to tree surgery. I've been working for about 3 months part time as a groundie. I've got CS 30/31 coming up and CSCS, and a recent background in ropework from rock climbing and caving. What can I do to be more useful apart from get more experience? What reading around arboriculture and ropework would people recommend? What advice would you give to someone starting out? Any input is greatly appreciated. TIA
