  1. Do foresters / cutters work until retirement til mid-60s or is the work too physically demanding to last that long? If that's the case then what do you do once you're too knackered to fell at pace anymore? Is there much scope for going into woodland management, forest officer, or estate work for a more cushy lifestyle? For my part, I'm 31 been doing arb in a city for a year and enjoying it, but had a week of removing Sitka regen (weeding with chainsaws) on Highland hills in driving rain - not nice, but one day we felled small sitkas (40ft or so) and loved it. After snedding up I couldn't wait to get onto the next tree. Definitely my gut is telling me that felling in the forest is where I belong! Not sure on my longevity in this specific line of work though... But perhaps opportunities will come along. Advice appreciated!

  3. Hi all Nikk the Newbie, well in my strives to become a Oldish tree surgeon / Grounds person I had my worst set back for a long time. I went to my doctors to see about my troublesome right knee had surgery back in April 17. Only to be informed that I face further surgery and put everything on hold for my new career! I've had to cancel All temporarily booked courses, I've bought bits of kit, they will now sit on my garage shelf with big question mark over them. I feel sick to my stomach, at 53 my doctor/consultant is thinking of replacing my knee ! Downside is my young age ! So you lucky people out there ! You are very fortunate to do the job you do! I am very grateful for being welcome onto this forum, and I have had the pleasure to chat with light minded people. Cheers Nick
