  1. Hi I'm 23 and have recently moved up to Newcastle from mid wales and I'm looking for work in the north east. My aim is to be up in the trees as a climber eventually and I'm willing to work my way up to that. I have over a years worth of experience as a groundy, working with small arb teams dragging brash, feeding chippers, logging up and snedding out, assisting with basic rigging and aiding with assisted felling. I also have experience working grounds maintenance; strimming, mowing, hedge cutting and all the clean up that goes with that. I admit I have only recently gotten my tickets so my experience is a bit limited especially with the climbing but I'm very keen to learn and greatly value any experience I can get or any knowledge passed on. Tickets I currently have: Health and safety first aid in forestry Chainsaw maintenance and cross cutting Small tree felling Tree climbing and aerial rescue With more to come once the bank account allows... I previously worked in a small sawmill so I know how to do a hard days work. I'm punctual and I appreciate that honesty goes a long way. I love being outdoors which is mainly why I've chosen this career path and have a passion for learning all about trees and plants. I have my own saw (husky 550) and relevent PPE and a small climbing kit that is enough for basic jobs and aerial rescue. I also have a full driver's license and my own vehicle and I'm willing to travel. Would love to hear from anyone with opportunities or anyone who knows someone looking for an extra hand. My contact details [email protected] 07309099178
  2. With 20 years' experience in the industry, we are well aware that there comes a time in every climbing arborists' life that being up trees for a living becomes harder. Often that moment is what pre-empts the conversation we then have with climbers about next steps but it pays to think about this before that moment arrives. There are several ways that experienced climbers and groundsmen can advance their careers. There are lots of options, whether it's going on to become a tree surveyor, a planning officer, a practical assessor, a teacher or college lecturer, an expert witness, and lots more - there's something for everyone in the arb industry. The thing is that decades of experience and chainsaw tickets usually just isn't enough. However, a bit of forward planning and some extra time and effort will gain you the qualification you need to progress higher while your feet are on the ground. Watching who's about you on a daily basis in the arb world and seeing what draws your attention might help you decide a direction. The following links will take you to the Arboriculture Association website and they offer a wealth of information and support in this area. For a simple page of the possible careers in this sector click here and for a more detailed, clear view of the qualifications needed for different roles it's here. You can also access a list of training providers which offer suitable courses across the UK here. We would love to hear from education providers and those who have gone on to qualify at Level 3 or above in the arb sector about other options that will enrich this blog. We'll keep it updated so that it's useful on an ongoing basis. In the meantime it's really worth thinking about what your plan is for when climbing looses its shine. We're here when the time comes and we usually have a good range of technical as well as practical jobs available. Please comment if there are roles you think should be included above or if you have any questions. Kate & Beccy 😊
  3. I'm new to the industry and looking to learn how it all works. Do you have any views about a climbing arborists age limits?If so please answer my attached poll. Thank you! Kate

  11. Mods, please delete/move if not allowed. Im based in Preston Lancs Im looking for someone willing to give me some training/experience on chainsaw use. I had the chance to help a customer on mine (in audio visual) clear his land and fell quite a few trees. After some advice I have said no to this, and he is bringing in specialists to level the area, but has agreed to leave me about 5 ton of logs for me to go up, and cut/split as I require. I only have a husky 135mk2, but through the advice I have been given on this forum, have purchase a fully husky ppe kit and oregon boots, spare chains, file kit, split fuel tank, sharpening vice etc. I dont intend to become a pro, its mainly for chopping firewood, and possibly removing some trees at home. So if anyone is willing, im more than happy to be a labourer for you on some jobs given notice so i can book time off my main jobs (chef & av installer) in return for you to teach me some of your knowledge & experience in the art of chainsaw maintenance and use of said chainsaw (cuts snedding, bucking etc) Thanks for your time Steve PS - I have been using the saw at home, and getting to grips with it, keeping the 12-3 oclock of the nose clear to avoid kickback, checking my stance and control of the saw, checking tension, stripping and cleaning after use checking bar and chain, air filter, bar, oiler, nut and bolts. (so have leant a little bit)
