  3. Good evening all, I have been looking in to forestry machinery operative courses today and i'm not sure where to start or which ones would be best. I take it I have to pass the basic FMO course first before moving on to say flail/mulcher. Skidsteers. Telehandlers. Tractors etc. Also is there much call for people with these tickets? I know nowadays having the right certificate is essential for a lot of roles. I'm looking into this as i do enjoy this industry but seeing as i don't climb i'd like a different progression route. I'm 39 this summer and don't really want to be just dragging brash till i'm 70+. I'm based in Birmingham very close to the M6 and M42 . I'd appreciate any advice on this. Lee
  4. Hi all I'm torn between two courses - the Arb Association's Intermediate Tree Inspection and Land Skills' 2 Day Tree Inspection. I need a stepping stone between the Lantra One Day basic course and the Professional Tree Inspection course. I'm thinking the Land Skills one as it's being run quite a lot sooner and is a bit cheaper, and seems to have the same basic material. Any help or suggestions, especially from anyone who's done the courses, would be great. Thanks!
