  1. Hi all - looking for some help, I write for a publication called Cranes & Access and was hoping to get a better understanding of how the Arb industry feels about using powered access (MEWPs/cherry pickers) and cranes for an article I am writing. I’d be interested to hear from anyone that either uses them on a regular basis; uses them sporadically; and those that have never or will never use them. To take part in the survey, please click on the link below. You will only be required to answer 5 questions and it shouldn’t take longer than a minute. http://bit.ly/CnA_Arb All submissions are completely anonymously with the data being used to work out the averages of the industry as a whole. Saying that, if you would like to provide further thoughts and opinions on the subject there is space to do so after completing the survey. Thanks! Ed
  2. Hi all, I currently work 5 days a week for a company as an arb surveyor/consultant. I am looking to earn some extra cash by carrying out some local surveys and providing reports on weekends for mostly risk assessments and tree management reports. I may end up doing some small BS5837 and subsidence reports but will mostly do these through work due to the complexity and other reasons. Are there any liability/insurance etc. issues I need to sort before I can get started? I am fully qualified with several years experience. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
  3. I'm starting to wonder whether life as an independent consultant would be the way to go. Can anyone advise on a suitable setup in terms of a GPS device to collect the survey data, and software to collect and download the tree survey data and produce tree plans, especially plans for BS5837? I can write my own professional AIA and AMS report and would rather do my own tree protection plans than pay for someone else to do them. I presume I would need some sort of professional indemnity insurance too. Any advice welcome as this is all new to me.

  6. Dear Fellow Arborist, I am currently undertaking a BSc in Arboriculture and Urban Forestry at Myerscough College, part of the University of Central Lancashire. As part of this I am looking into the question “How Are Arboricultural Arising's Being Processed?” I am particularly interested in the potential for further development of the tree hub/ tree station provision. A tree hub/ tree station is a place where locally sourced arisings from arboriculture work can be brought to be processed to prevent them becoming waste. The arisings are then recycled and reused in an environmentally efficient manner that makes money for the cooperative. I would be very grateful if you could, complete the short questionnaire detailed below to help me with this. Information provided will be treated with strict confidence and individuals and firms will not be identified. The questionnaire should only take several minutes of your time. Kind Regards John McGowan https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/T2ZQGVZ
  7. Hi Folks, I thought i'd pass on this survey from the group who launched the new Arborist apprenticeship standard earlier this year. It takes about 10 minutes so if you've got any spare time please have a look at it. Full press release below. Thanks, Steve Take the Survey here: https://surveymonkey.co.uk/r/8FT53WY Following the successful launch of the arborist, forest operative and horticulture and landscape operative apprenticeships in England, earlier this year, the employer-led partnership behind the initiative is now asking the question, does industry require apprenticeships for managerial or advanced technical roles? The trailblazer partnership, which includes 50 industry employers, is now investigating if there is demand for managerial or advanced technical apprenticeships, by consulting with employers in the sector, to determine if new apprenticeships are necessary, and what skills they should contain. A coalition of arboriculture, forestry, horticulture and landscape industries have already been successfully developing apprenticeship standards since 2015, under the new process, often known as ‘trailblazer’. Trailblazers continue to be at the forefront of Government apprenticeship reforms in England and apprentices are now being recruited to the three new standards, which were announced in the summer. A fourth apprenticeship standard for horticulture and landscape supervisor, is currently in the approval process. Simon Rotheram, Managing Director of Beechwood Trees, commented: “It is vital that the industry provides feedback on the requirement of a new apprenticeship for managers. A lack of informed response now, may result in the wrong decision being made for future generations, resulting in a major skills gap for supervisor level arborists, and other supervisory industry roles, looking to develop their careers into more managerial positions.” If you think your organisation might benefit from an apprenticeship for managers or advanced technicians, it is imperative that you complete the questionnaire, before the 2nd January 2018.

  8. Dear All, Newbie to Arbtalk but about 6 or so months ago I spotted a post where someone recommended a guy for doing tree surveys who used some whiz-kid super GPS or similar technical gear to put trees on an electronical topographical map so that it could be used for making a management plan for woodland. I have spend the best part of 5 hours trying to find this post. At the time, I rang up the bloke and spoke to him and foolishly cannot find my record of the conversation. So, my request is if you are the guy I rang up (my wood is near Oxford and is about 20 acres) or if you were the original adviser who posted a recommendation of him or know of the post.... Please advise! Any other recommendations welcome as I have now joined forces with my next door neighbours and the acreage is now near 100 with another neighbour "thinking" of joining us which would end up nearer 150 acres... Yours CJDG
  9. Hi all, genuinely asking for a friend current price for a pucker BS5837 Survey and Report? Also current price for Condition Survey? Context? 3 Mature trees in garden/road by boundary of fence line and one extension to property required...
  10. Hi folks! Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place - am just looking for some advice about tree surveys. I work in a newly appointed role and have been asked to have the trees on site surveyed for safety reasons. Now I've been asked to get some quotes, but I can't see as that's really possible is it unless the work is actually undertaken? Or is it a case of supplying as much info as possible about what's on site to get a ball park figure? And also what should I be looking for in a company to approach for the work? (I'm in Northamptonshire if that helps and anyone can recommend). There are various trees on the premises (which covers between 30 and 40 acres), some are mature, others are very young, and there's a broad mixture of species. Also what would qualify as a tree to be surveyed? Or is that down to the client? Say for example, yew - where is the line drawn between it being a large shrub/hedge and a tree Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi all, I am conducting a research project at De Montfort University together with The National Forest Company and The Leicester & Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership (LLEP). We are looking for information and advice on how The National Forest Company can increase the supply of biomass from woodlands within The National Forest. We are looking for people who are involved in woodland management, as we hope that with their experience in this field, they can provide valuable input on the issue of managing woodlands to supply biomass. If you feel that you meet this criterion, I would like to invite you to take part in the following survey which should take no more than a few minutes to complete. The survey starts with an introduction page and a second page with some background information on The National Forest. At the end of the survey you will be asked to provide some basic demographic information about the organisation that you work for. I hope that you will take part in this survey as it will provide valuable data for the project, and the results may help to stimulate the supply of biomass within The National Forest. You help is greatly appreciated. The survey can be found at here. Thanks, Rod
