  1. Hi I'm 23 and have recently moved up to Newcastle from mid wales and I'm looking for work in the north east. My aim is to be up in the trees as a climber eventually and I'm willing to work my way up to that. I have over a years worth of experience as a groundy, working with small arb teams dragging brash, feeding chippers, logging up and snedding out, assisting with basic rigging and aiding with assisted felling. I also have experience working grounds maintenance; strimming, mowing, hedge cutting and all the clean up that goes with that. I admit I have only recently gotten my tickets so my experience is a bit limited especially with the climbing but I'm very keen to learn and greatly value any experience I can get or any knowledge passed on. Tickets I currently have: Health and safety first aid in forestry Chainsaw maintenance and cross cutting Small tree felling Tree climbing and aerial rescue With more to come once the bank account allows... I previously worked in a small sawmill so I know how to do a hard days work. I'm punctual and I appreciate that honesty goes a long way. I love being outdoors which is mainly why I've chosen this career path and have a passion for learning all about trees and plants. I have my own saw (husky 550) and relevent PPE and a small climbing kit that is enough for basic jobs and aerial rescue. I also have a full driver's license and my own vehicle and I'm willing to travel. Would love to hear from anyone with opportunities or anyone who knows someone looking for an extra hand. My contact details [email protected] 07309099178
