  1. Ok, here's an idea for a thread - lets post vids of people doing dangerous things with chainsaws and then analyse and discuss. I'm sticking this one up as it's just come online this evening. I was horrified at certain points. I suppose most everyone on here will instantly identify the moment of maximal danger in the vid, but maybe give some of the less experienced members a chance to think about it and comment? I don't know, maybe this idea is a late night waste of time...I'd me keen to scrutinise any vids other members can find and share though, but not the obvious fails, obviously.
  2. I'm relatively new to the game but after lots of research into footwear I eventually went for a brand new pair of Meindl Airstreams, this was about 6 months ago. I started working for a small tree surgery business up in North Devon in August and have been since and loving it! My problem is with the boots sole's-they are so slippery I feel like I am taking my life in my hands whenever there are wet drain covers, wet wood to walk over, cobbles (I am in Clovelly quite often), or any hard wet surfaces. Now, I am getting to the stage where my boss would like to start me climbing-I can't even imagine climbing a wet tree with these boots on-it would be suicidal!!! Has anyone else had a similar experience? I think the sole's are just to hard and thick I'm gonna sell them and get some Eltens I think, so if anyone would like a decent pair of Meindl Airstreams size 8 let me know! Tom
  3. Just found this on the 'tube looking for chainsaw vids. How dangerous is this kind of malarkey, or is it just me that cringes?
  4. Hi all, Walked my dog about an hour ago and came across what looks like an elder tree. That's not the odd bit, but this is, it is sat at an angle root ball on the pavement and the canopy side of it resting on the hedge. Now i know this corner is an accident hotspot and all the (i beleive to be) elders in the hedge row are a good 9 may be 10ft high and most are leaning into the road/pavement ready to come down, (all dead of course) now i don't know why this tree being a good 9ft high is sat blocking the pavement the way it is. is there anybody who knows if maybe this is an attempt to hi jack a car ? it is on a main road side who could i contact to make them aware asap. Many Thanks
