  2. Hi everyone I am new to the site. I am 32 years old, I live in Liverpool and I am thinking of leaving my well paid office job and get myself a trade in becoming an Aborist. I am currently earning 40k a year and I am aware that I will have to take a big dip or even cut in half my salary by making this career choice. Some of you may think I am mad but I am really tired of the office politics and sitting behind a desk all day. I feel really connected with nature and this, I am not new to hard graft I used to work on sites building universities and hotels as a labourer but never actually had a trade behind me. My plan is to get a month intensive training from Kingswood training centre in Kent which do a full starter course which gives me... NPTC 201/202/203 (CS30/31) – 5-day Lantra Chainsaw Maint. Cross Cutting and Felling of Trees (up to 380mm) plus NPTC Assess NPTC 206/306 (CS38) – 5-day Lantra Tree Climbing and Aerial Rescue – plus NPTC Assess NPTC 308 (CS39) – 2-day Using Chainsaw from Rope and Harness – plus NPTC Assess Stumpgrinder – 1 day Lantra or NPTC Woodchipper – 1 day Lantra or NPTC Basic Tree Inspection (BTI) – Lantra Qualification Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) – OFFQUAL I know having the tickets is only half the battle and what employers want is good experience. I know its not going to be easy. I am worried about not finding work due to my experience after forking out 3 grand on the course. I would just like peoples thoughts on this who have experience in the business, especially those starting in their early 30s. The money is secondary to me and job satisfaction is more important to me now. The idea of maybe one day having my own business and this line of work which has so many aspects to it is exciting to me. I would love to know peoples feelings on being an arborist, does anyone hate the job? if so why? do you love it? what would you do differently if you started up again? Look forward to hearing your thoughts
  3. Hi, Dose anyone have any experience with the advanced Arb and Forestry course at SRUC (Scottish Rural Educational College) in Dumfries? I have heard mixed reviews about the quality of the teaching and the organisation there. I would be interested to hear if anyone here has first hand experience of the course and when it was that you where there. What where the good and bad points? Thanks...
  4. Hi Guys & Girls, Moving to the North East (Hartlepool) in a month or so (Mrs has a new job), what is the work availability like, generally speaking?

(Have certs 30,31,32,33,38,39, PA1 spraying, cscs & will refresh my first aid before the move. Also had approx. 700 hrs geo and structures Rope access experience although IRATA has expired now). Cheers, Stuart

  9. Hi, I work at an independent television company called Ricochet, based in Brighton. We make a broad range of documentary and factual programmes for all the main broadcasters, with recent series including Food Unwrapped, Born To Be Different and Mr Drews School for Boys for Channel 4, Andrew Marrs Megacities for BBC1, and Cowboy Builders for Channel 5. My job is to develop new programme ideas and we’re currently working on an idea for a documentary which would involve following the work of arborists. The documentary would follow the day-to-day lives of arborists, and would hopefully capture the exciting moments that are part of the job, the difficult climbs, the relationships between crews, and much more. As we are still in the research stages of this project, I’m looking to speak to arborists to make a three-minute tape to show the channel exactly what the content of this documentary would be. This means I’d like to hear the stories of favourite jobs, bad conditions and heart-stopping moments – stories that stand out about your job and why you enjoy it. If anyone is willing to have a really informal chat about all of this it would be great to hear from you - either on this forum, or you can contact me on [email protected] or 01273 224800 if that's easier. Thank you in advance for any help you can offer. Kind regards Zara

    Hi all, I have posted on here in the past about this but not much joy, possibly due to the recession. I'm currently training at level 3 diploma in arb and forestry, and i would like to know if anybody would be willing and able to offer me a paid job with them. I don't have tickets yet but will be going for them once i can start to cover the cost of my journey to and from uni, and the expenses of the course. I have my own PPE, so you wouldn't need to worry about that, i'm willing to just pull brash to a chipper if needs be, but obviously if anything else can be don't i will accept. i don't mind chipping, i have transport in the form of a 4x4. i have already completed the level 2 course and passed with Merit, Last Year i have also had expirence with a tree surgeon a while back who moved out to Australia, He got me into this sector and i really really enjoy it. i'm on the outskirts of Gainsborough, about 15 minutes from Gainsborough, 20 from Newark, and 15 from Lincoln. If anybody can offer me a job fairly close by it would be highly appreciated and welcomed with open arms. if someone can help please do get in contact with me. Thanks again
