  1. Do foresters / cutters work until retirement til mid-60s or is the work too physically demanding to last that long? If that's the case then what do you do once you're too knackered to fell at pace anymore? Is there much scope for going into woodland management, forest officer, or estate work for a more cushy lifestyle? For my part, I'm 31 been doing arb in a city for a year and enjoying it, but had a week of removing Sitka regen (weeding with chainsaws) on Highland hills in driving rain - not nice, but one day we felled small sitkas (40ft or so) and loved it. After snedding up I couldn't wait to get onto the next tree. Definitely my gut is telling me that felling in the forest is where I belong! Not sure on my longevity in this specific line of work though... But perhaps opportunities will come along. Advice appreciated!
  2. Hi, I'm a highly experienced tree man (35 yrs experience) looking for work... am prepared to travel anywhere if the money is right. Started climbing at 14 and have climbed most of my life, but getting a bit old now,though still fit.. Got experience of hardwood and softwood forestry (including skyline winching) and working on street trees including emergency works. I've got NPTC ground tickets, C&G Arb and a clean 7.5 ton licence (inc. trailer). If you need recommendations, please feel free to contact Brian Moore (Elite Trees) or Craig Ketley ( Surrey Tree Care). Also worked for Tony Saunders at Homegrown Timber and Urban Forestry (Watford)... Part time could suit well, though will consider anything....not bad with fencing and mechanics.Take care and have a good one out there, lads, Tel. 07971 359246 Email [email protected]
  3. Gerry Ryan here from Abbey Sawmills, Ireland. I'm enquiring in relation to ash tree's suitable for hurley's and if any Forestry worker comes 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 the required chainsaw certificates for felling, and my tree surgeon will fell roughly 50 - 70 ash tree's per day. Ash suitable for hurley's description The ash tree's 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. [email protected] 00353 861903167
