  3. Hi Everyone, I have a couple of large Copper Beech logs (Fagus sylvatica Purpurea) ready to be milled in Bothwell, South Lanarkshire & I was wondering of anyone was interested in the boards from them. I haven't milled them yet so you could specify sizes. The logs have been cut to 3 m in length already & the largest is about 34 " (approx 86 cm) in diameter & the smaller of the 2 is approx 24". I also have quite a few large Ash logs from the same job (there is also some large logs of other species such as Sycamore & Lime). All offers considered - we can deliver if reasonably local otherwise you can pick them up from the site. Regards, Martin Greener Glens

  5. folks, i'm looking for a bit of advise regarding getting into this line of work. Currently looking at career change and with a rope access background and a desire to work out doors this suits me perfect. I looked into it a few years ago but never had any joy. Any advise on how to get started etc? is there much work in the NE of Scotland? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks
  6. Hi all, I'm based in Glasgow, happy to travel. I am NPTC trained and qualified, and have 4 years self-employed experience cutting trees, in domestic/urban arboriculture setting as well as forestry and peat bog restoration. I have held my climbing tickets (also NPCT) for 2 years. I have all my own PPE, a reliable chainsaw, climbing/rescue kit, chipper ticket, first aid at work, full clean UK driver's license, and my own transport. Open to any offers of work, please get in touch, distance is not a problem provided there's enough work for it to be worthwhile. Cheers! -Dru 07789621187
  7. Hi, I have just passed my cs38 and I'm putting the feelers out for any opportunities to start climbing and gaining experience. I will be getting my cs39 in the next month or two as well. I have a good amount of experience doing ground work and I am looking to progress onto climbing. I am a reliable, competent, flexible and 'switched on' worker that is keen to continue learning and improving my skill set. I have my own ground saw, climbing kit and PPE. I'm 28 and based in Glasgow; however, for the right opportunity I would consider working further afield as I have no ties. Ideally, it would be full time opportunities but I understand this is possibly unrealistic. I am self employed so any opportunities would be considered. Thanks all, Rich Mobile: 07933136253

  9. I'm involved with a small-scale felling operation 30 miles north of Stirling, Scotland. The trees comprise Lawson Cypress (10 Ton), Western Red Cedar (15 Ton) and Larch (8 Ton) - weights are approximate. The downside to the felling, is that a couple of us are carrying out this work voluntarily for the Scout Association, so we can only fell the trees over several weekends, which might take a year to complete. I'm looking for someone who might be interested in buying the timber as a lot or in part, but they'd need to transport it off site. The site is adjacent to an old railway line and so is solid and has reasonable access. I would need the timber moved soon after we carry out a weekends felling; therefore, there might be two or three journeys. If anyone is interested or knows someone who might be able to help us out, please reply or PM me.

  19. Hello, I am brand new to this forum and know very little about trees - or nature! I am a playwright researching heartwood and heart-rot, specifically in trees found in Scotland, where my play is set. This is my sixth play. I would be most grateful if anyone could help answer some questions to ensure I get my facts right and do all tree-lovers proud with this play; I've found this process a fascinating one with the research I have done so far and value any tips or support you good people can offer. Hope to hear from you! Paul L Martin
  20. In celebration of the International Year of Forests, 2011, the Arboricultural Association Scottish Branch and Forestry Commission Scotland are working together in aid of a new charity fund-raising event: Climb a Mile. This will involve a team of professional arborists climbing a tree in relay to achieve a total height equal to or greater than one mile. This will be held in the stunning grounds of Scone Palace. Participants will be climbing one of the magnificent specimen trees in the arboretum. This will be held on the 18th and 19th of June. Participants will be expected to raise sponsorship money to be given in entirety to the Help for Heroes charity. We need as many climbers as possible to help us achieve the one mile goal, and to raise as much money for Help the Heroes as possible. This will be a great day - one not to be missed or forgotten! PDFs of the sponsorship form and Disclaimer form are attached below, or can be downloaded from here: Scottish - SC Branch - - Arboricultural Association.
