  1. A new, unique forestry event will take place in Scotland next month – 22nd and 23rd August. Forestry Expo Scotland will provide visitors the opportunity to not only see the latest and best forestry machines and equipment at work but also to hear from leading industry experts on the latest industry technology. Organiser Martin Dare, of Rural Projects Ltd, gave an insight into what visitors can expect: “Forestry Expo Scotland is unique in combining a large-scale harvesting demonstration, where we expect to harvest over 10,000 cubic metres over the course of the 2 days, with a packed field of trade stands, where further demonstrations will also take place.” “The event is supported by some of the biggest names in forestry machinery and forestry management and visitors will see the latest harvesters and forwarders from the likes of John Deere, Komatsu, Ponsse and Tigercat put through their paces in a real commercial harvesting environment.” “Our trade stand exhibitors range from woodland management experts to suppliers of machine consumables, specialist clothing and of course kit and machinery to suit all types and sizes of forestry operation.” “Scotland’s forestry and timber sector is a huge and important success story, currently contributing over £1bn to the economy, so this is a great time to stage this inaugural event. From farmers and other land managers looking to find out more about how they might establish new or managing existing woodland, to timber and forestry professionals we aim to have something for everyone attending.” “The site we have chosen for this event offers not only a great harvesting opportunity, but also a scenic backdrop for the trade expo with easy access from the M74 (M6) motorway.” The Forestry Expo Scotland event will take place at Little Clyde, Elvanfoot, South Lanarkshire. Tickets and further information are available from www.forestryexpo.co.uk

  16. Woodland / Forestry Worker Caterham is one of the UK’s leading co-educational schools. It is well placed for access to town and country: the beautiful two hundred acre site is five minutes’ drive from Junction 6 of the M25, twenty minutes’ drive from Gatwick and a short walk from the local station, with several trains an hour into London. We have 44 hectares of woodland, including ancient woodland, at the head of the Caterham Valley. A management plan has been produced outlining a long term regeneration and coppicing programme, to improve habitat, woodland health, diversity and to provide an educational resource. The successful candidate will undertake the various silvicultural operations which are outlined in the School’s Management Plan, as well as day to day management of the woodland. Work will include thinning, coppicing, planting, fencing, spraying, ride cutting, arranging the sale of firewood to local merchants, ordering materials and record keeping. The attractive presentation of the woodland will also be important. Work will include the use of a modest sized forwarder for timber extraction. It is a sensitive site, both ecologically and socially, so the candidate will be very aware of issues of safety, extraction and soil damage, haulage/collection, as well as woodland use by the school and public. The candidate will be expected to work on their own initiative on a daily basis, though under the general direction of the Estates Bursar, Head Groundsman and a woodland consultant. The work will be assisted by other members of the School grounds staff whilst doing woodland work and in exchange for their time, the woodland worker will also work in the school grounds. The candidate will also work in close association with the School’s Head of Outdoor Learning to ensure that planned works support and enhance the educational use of the woodland. Salary will be based on the recommended Forestry Commission pay scales, taking into account qualifications and experience. For further information and to apply, please visit the vacancies page of our website at www.caterhamschool.co.uk The closing date for applications is Monday 4 December, interviews will take place later that week. The school reserves the right to appoint at any stage of the recruitment process; early applications are encouraged. The School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants will be required to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
  17. 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!

  20. Hello all, We have a free to attend event on Saturday 9th September celebrating Native Woodlands and tied in with the removal of an old larch plantation, planted in the 1950s, from one of our sites. The event will include equipment demonstrations by Mendip Forestry and felling technique demonstrations by our local and dependable tree surgeons. We're hoping that the event will raise awareness of what the sector is all about! It would be great to know if anyone else has ever ran or been to an event like this before, and any advice regarding advertising and content would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Ian 20170810 NWR event poster.pptx

  22. One of my proudest moments was when I was contacted by someone I had trained and told that the first aid training I had provided had saved one of their team’s life. Everyone sees first aid training as ticking a box. Well it is, but it can also make a difference. Remember it could be you needing help. As you may have gathered I am a first aid trainer, I am also a little different. I am not an amateur or a volunteer, I am an ambulance professional who maintains my annual CPD and works for the NHS in a bank capacity keeping my pre hospital skills fresh. I also have a background in remote emergency care, chainsaw use and tree climbing which all helps to making my training as fit for purpose as possible. We work in partnership with suppliers, an agricultural college and the Horse Trust in Buckinghamshire to provide excellent facilities and equipment, we also travel to train at your venue. Please visit our website for more information www.inveniotraining.co.uk we will be providing advice and updates on courses in due course.
