  1. My latest project. Chunked down to the crotch. Then felled against the lean (bout 17 degrees). Leaning over septic tank, had to go the other way. Used a trick I came up with, and it worked. This above was the state of the lean. This after making the cuts and cranking the tirfor, tree was at vertical. And down. Tirfor cable slung round the back of the stem, so the stem was in about 45 degree bite. There was no anchor point in the direction of pull, so I "pushed" it instead.
  2. We are looking for reliable hand cutters with CS30, CS31 to coppice chestnut. Now until to March 2017. Need to be self-employed and have your own transport and kit. Paid on a piece rate basis on sites around Midhurst and Petworth in West Sussex. Call 07505094691 or email cgwchestnut@hotmail.com
  3. Short video of some downhill felling to the head last month. A few sliding trees and a few bouncing butts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MK-Vc4CR3lM
  4. What a tool! I brought one of these Ratchet felling wedges over a year ago, reason being that I've always wanted a hydraulic version as i like the engineering principle, but at 2.5k the hydraulic ones are a bit expensive! These are a fifth of the price! So when i saw Treadlight Forestry advertising these on Facebook, i ordered one straight away (despite loads of typical bitchey Facebook comments) I kind of expected it to just sit in the truck not doing much, but I'm amazed at how much it gets used, and what it will lift/push over. 25 ton lifting force, and lifts about the same height as 2 wedges stacked ontop of each other (which tips a tree a fair way!) However you can insert wedges into the open back cut, remove the ratchet wedge, wind in, re insert and keep going if needed (not yet!). Its really easy to use, much much less effort than banging wedges in. The last pic was 30c in summer, 30 trees to fell away from a school, no sweat was broken! most were leaning towards the school slightly, so we would normally have set a line in with a throwline (LOTS of faffing about!) No need with this little beast! Its really goon on dead trees, where banging wedges in shakes the whole tree, this gently pushes it over. The size is really compact, easy to find a place for it in the truck. Its relatively light, marketed as being able to hang it on your forestry belt is stretching it a bit, its too heavy for that imo - It weighs as much as a small ground saw. No problems at all so far, and its been a really good buy, if i lost this one id have no hesitations about buying another!

  6. Hello My name is Jamie, I’m looking for employment in Devon, im in the Newton Abbot/Totnes area. I’m looking for felling work ideally, I have my NPTC 30/31 and have my course booked in December for the over 380mm felling. I have all my own PPE, saw, transport etc. Looking to gain some real hands on experience, as I would like to make a career in this area of work. Thanks, Jamie
  7. Hey guys, could you check out my youtube channel and videos, here is the link to one
  8. We are pleased to introduce our 2 in 1 tree pusher and lifter. This simple manual product offers 3 tons of force to make felling trees safe and convenient. The ratchet system allows force to be applied to the tree to make the direction of the fall easy to control. The product can also be used for lifting logs from the ground, making it easier to cut with the logs with a chainsaw. This product is available for purchase now at a reduced price of £99 including UK delivery.
  9. Hi all I've just recently passed my chainsaw crosscutting & maintenance and tree felling up to 200mm/8" (did bigger on the course though probably 11 - 12") I was hoping to use my qualification to make some money to pay of the damage of the saw, lessons and PPE, and hopefully start turning a profit . But I don't want to bite off more than I can chew with my saw, its a husqvarna 435 I think 41cc with a 16" bar. It was slow when stumping some of the bigger trees on the course which made me think about making this post. What sort of trees would the saw get through when crosscutting? When should I be thinking of a bigger saw? I obviously wouldn't be felling past 8 - 10" when working as im not qualified for that, however I have some trees of larger size that I might want to take down domestically. What sort of felling size would it go up to.
  10. Hello everyone, I haven't posted on here before but am familiar with the site. We have a 2acre mixed deciduous wood with an ancient woodland planning designation on it just West of Dumbarton and its in need of a bit of work which we will do ourselves but don't want to step on anyone's toes( council, FC or local judiciary) without having all the nessecary licences and plan in place. Basically looking for recommendations of people who carry out survey/plan and felling app'ns (thinning sycamore etc). Thanks.
  11. This is integrated training and assessment to achieve a NPTC Award in Felling and Processing Trees over 380mm. 21-23rd December 2015. One space available for £425 + VAT. Contact BTS training ladies to book the last spot 01449 720330 or email training@btsgroupuk.com
  12. I am looking for someone to carry out some thinning works. The trees are around 1ft to 18in max diameter at base. The work is to fell, sned and cut into lengths. It will produce approx 2 artic lorry loads of wood (around 200 trees). The wood does not have a home yet either so if you are interested and would like to take the timber, am happy to discuss. It is mixed conifer. Please leave your details or ask questions and I will get back to you. Thanks.
  13. Gerry Ryan here from Abbey Sawmills Ireland. I'm enquiring in regards ash tree's suitable for hurley's and if any forestry(contractor,harvester,consultant) come across this product from there line of work. My team and I have over 20 years experience in forestry(felling,saw milling). We have full public liability and required chainsaw certificates to fell ash. And my tree surgeon will fell roughly between 50 - 70 ash tree's per day. Ash suitable for hurley's description The ash suitable tend to fall in the 20 - 60 year old span,with a breast height diameter of 20 - 50 cm being the optimum range. Only the bottom 3 - 4 feet(1.3 meters) of the tree is suitable for hurley's which leaves the rest for chipping's,milling or fire wood. I am currently paying in the UK for ash tree's suitable for hurley's £ 230 per m3 for quality ash. I can also provide pictures of the ash tree's which we have sourced throughout the UK,Ireland and other European countries this past year and also a video that will show the type of felling that takes place if interested. References from past work in UK woodlands/Estates and UK Forestry consultants available upon request. Yours sincerely, Gerry Ryan Abbey Sawmills Ireland. 00353 861903167
  14. Hi. I work for a local authority in South Bucks and we manage Country Parks. We have the following timber stacks for sale (as firewood presumably): ALSO, read to the bottom if you are interested in potential felling jobs with timber sale as price). STACK 1...Mixed species but approx. 65% deciduous, all cut 8 ft long, diameter varies from 2"-2ft, average diameter 6/7", stack measures 5ft 9" high, 88ft long. This was cut Winter 2013/14. Good access - can take photos of road surface for interested parties. Warning: only 50 pieces are over one foot diameter. Small bits inc. birch but the big bits all all oak. STACK 2...Grand fir and pine, all cut 12ft, 4"-20" diameter, average 11" diameter, Approx 140 pieces, cut Feb 2014. Good access - same place as STACK 1. Storm damage clear up. STACK 3...Scots pines, all 12ft long. 4"-2.5ft dia, average dia 1 ft, stack size 5ft3" high, 42ft long, approx 300 pieces, felled and stacked spring 2014, 55 to 60 pieces are over one ft diameter. There are a few other bits of conifer and sweet chestnut dotted around on the ground, which we would be happy to listen to offers for if you visit. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions or request photos of the timber or the access points. We also have a sizable clearance job to undertake at one of our parks. Brash would need disposing of (fine to burn at certain times of year). It is under HLS so there are terms and conditions to adhere to. The ground conditions are potentially pretty wet in the winter, so we would be needing seasonal extraction and we want the brash disposed of (burning ok but seasonal - basically winter ok only!) The Felling Licence is in place and calculated as: 5.8 hectares, all Scots pine, approx. age of trees 35 yrs, the dbh is 31. The selective felling percentage is 70% to come out. The licence calculates the metre cubed volume at 600 m3. At this moment I'm just trying to ascertain interest in the felling and clearance job - I may have to put it out to tender depending on value. Certainly public liability insurance and tickets will be required and we would have to set you up as an official vendor etc. but this hasn't caused any problems in the past with official businesses etc. Enquiries are very welcome at this stage. Whether we clear it all in one go or stagger it over five years is also debatable at this stage. Cheers. Matt.

  18. Hey everyone and thanks to webmaster Steve for getting me through the anti spam barriers! We're looking for my replacement here at National Trust: Downhill Demesne and Hezlett House, North Coast N.Ireland. Downhill Demesne & Mussenden Temple - National Trust - | Facebook I absolutely loved this job to bits but I had to move on up at some point and the Site mgr post came up so I went for it and got it.... anyway.... Whilst Arbour work will make a significant amount of the early winter works on the estate this post is a very varied role going from visitor services, events logistics, training of volunteers, students and the Academy position. It would certainly suit someone looking to ease off from the heavy tree work and get more involved with all aspects of estate mgmt, gardening/horticulture, conservation, visitor engagement and more. Whilst the wage @ circa 17K might not seem much this is incredibly rewarding. relocation expenses would be paid, numerous benefits and ongoing training with Europe's biggest charity. All I can say is read the role profile on the jobs listing to get a real idea of what it entails. --> Full Role profile and apply here: https://irecruitment.nationaltrust.org.uk/OA_HTML/OA.jsp?page=/oracle/apps/irc/candidateSelfService/webui/VisVacDispPG&OAHP=IRC_EXT_SITE_VISITOR_APPL&OASF=IRC_VIS_VAC_DISPLAY&akRegionApplicationId=821&transactionid=352500813&retainAM=N&addBreadCrumb=RP&p_svid=1389&p_spid=1329&oapc=6&oas=VcsvRj5anJUBoE6tHvVEpw

  21. Its that time again - The East of England Cutters and Climbers Competition is upon us once more (and I'd only just suppressed the memories of last year). Gratefully sponsored once again by arbtalk.co.uk and arbjobs.com (amongst others!). Same old routine (more or less); book your place, get your tickets, turn up, climb a tree, cut one down, have a laugh and win some prizes. Same events as last year, except we're dropping the bar and chain change for a head to head pole climb. Cos everyone loves spikes!! Ha ha. We're looking at a simpler ranking system this year, with prizes for the top handful for each event but the big prizes going to the best all rounders who complete all three events. Due to financial stress we are regretfully charging £5 per event or £10 for all three. Competitors tickets are still free though! Post your questions and I'll do my best!
