  5. Evening all. Last night I came home late is to go out, parked my truck outside my hose and went out in the car. I came home this afternoon to find the truck unlocked and my Stihl MS200t missing from the back of the truck This is the second time this week. the first was just about £3.50 in loose change and a half bottle of aftershave but last night was the saw. My guess is that there using a Ford master key as i know 110% my truck was locked. Ill see if i can get the seriel number from Honey Brothers in the morning. Its a 2009 model which I bought new. The saw has 'Nick Stevenson' engraved on the air filter cover, the side plate and on the bottom of the saw. If anyone hears about it (which I highly dout) please ring me on 07961691340. Thanks Nick

  23. I have had a pear tree cut down and the logs are stacked ready for cutting into planks. There are about 8 lengths between 12-18” diameter as shown in the attached photo. There is a 3 foot wide concrete slab space adjacent to where the wood is stacked. If this is not adequate size for the saw, a larger saw could be parked in the street. This would require the logs being carried up an outside metal staircase and to the front gate. I live in Camberwell, London, SE5 I’d like to get a cost estimate for this work.

  24. Calling on all arborists, tree surgeons, horticulturist, gardener or similar professionals working with trees in the London Boroughs. I am conducting a confidential survey to gather information that will help our efforts and those of our partners to limit the population, spread and impact of the pest species Oak Processionary Moth (OPM). This pest is known to be present in several boroughs in West London, the Bromley and Croydon areas of South London, and the Spelthorne and Elmbridge Districts of Surrey. The purpose of the survey is to gather information which will help us to better understand how arboricultural, landscaping and gardening businesses operate in London. In turn, our better understanding of those working in the OPM-affected areas will allow us to more effectively manage this pest in the future. I can reassure you that your information will be treated in the strictest confidence, and nothing in the final survey report will identify any individual business. So to help us manage this pest more effectively, I would invite you to complete the short, on-line survey at http://bit.ly/OPM-survey And if you know other similar professionals who might not have heard about this survey, please also encourage them to take part. Further information about OPM is available on our website at Forestry Commission - Pests & Diseases - Oak Processionary Moth. Thank you in advance for your assistance in this important matter.

We have full and part-time positions available for the right teams.
