  1. Thanks. It looks from the pic there's another smaller one growing to the left of it but it's another leader.
  2. Hi could someone please help me identify this tree?
  3. Has anyone got any ideas about hiring a chipper in London? It's just for a day to process a medium sized sycamore tree in the Greenwich area. Cheers Colin
  4. Available for work in forestry, coppicing and basic tree surgery jobs in East Hants and West Sussex areas. I'm also interested in working in Mid Wales because I travel back there quite often and wouldn't mind relocating. My tree skills are quite versatile and I have a good collection of saws. Could provide references if requested. Cheers Colin

  6. Sorry, I got my wires crossed - the 4-6k quotes were for tree surgery PL I was enquiring about a while ago; forestry PL should be a lot cheaper but the first (and only) ins. company I called wouldn't insure me because I was sub-contracting and working alongside employees of the estate. The reason sounded a bit complicated but I think I got the gist of it in the end. Anyway, it turned out that I was covered by the estate's ins. so it worked out well in the end. But I still need to get PLI for myself, ideally one that covers me for occasional tree surgery jobs, too.
  7. Thanks for these recommends, this sounds far better than the 4-6k per annum range I've been quoted so far.
  8. Hi John I'd be happy to do a few weeks work and have experience, all my own gear and transport. I live in Liss so not to far to travel. My background is mostly softwoods but recently did some mature oak and ash thinning for an estate in Petworth. Here's my number if you'd like to call for a chat: 07450470787 I could start on Tuesday. Cheers Colin
  9. cheers for the ins recommendation. I called them and they don't want to insure me because I'd be working with other guys and we'd be classed as self-employed and not technically covered by the estate's own insurance. After reading the forums it seems this is a bit of tricky area to navigate because its not easy to know when someone is properly self-employe when sub-contracting and to know when or if the contractor falls under the umbrella of the main business insurance.

  10. Hi - could someone recommend an insurance company for public liability and give a roundabout figure of what it should cost? I've been offered a few days work felling hardwoods for a private estate so public risk should be minimal. I remember buying PLI when I was doing forestry work in the 90s in Wales and I'm sure it wasn't more than 100 GBP for the year. Not sure what it might be these days! Cheers Colin

  13. Hi Andy - yes, I'm interested but I've got some work on for next week. Could it wait until a day after next week or would Saturday be a possibility? Give us a call if you'd like to discuss (07450470787). Cheers Colin
  14. Hi There - are there any harvester owners in the Hampshire/West Sussex area that need a feller to do some felling? I've got my own saws, transport, tickets, etc. Very competent feller, years of experience and hard worker. happy to work full weeks or as and when needed. Cheers Colin
