Hi Guys, Just joined the forum so not 100% on with how things work but guessing someone will be able to point me in the right direction. I have worked as a sub-contractor doing general land management (including some tree works / assisting) I set up on my own last year and concentrated on general maintenance (grass cutting etc) to get me started. I took my CS30 and have since been cutting fallen trees and assisting with grounds work with arborists when they have felled or pollarded trees for me as part of my contracts. I also sat my basic tree survey and inspection Lantra award this week as I would like to move into surveys and inspections. (I have assisted with 6 other surveys in the past. Any tips on how I can progress and find any work would be really appreciated as grounds tenders I have gone for have not come off and I need to get a focus on something. I really fancy getting into surveys but 1) I am 60 and 2) haven't got cash to invest in more training without having something tangible that will come from it. Hope that makes sense? I am based on the Leicestershire / Warwickshire border. Thanks chaps, any help or suggestions appreciated.
After some advice for buying a digital clinometer for height measurements. What are people using/what do people find quick, easy and reliable? I have looked at the Haglof ECII D, but am I correct in thinking you have to know your distance from the tree stem to calculate height? description says 'heights can be measured from any known distance'. Would really like to know how easy this is to use. Looked at the Nikon Forestry Pro - this looked great in terms of ease of use, but a bit flawed, as the minimum distance is 10m and often find myself much closer to the tree stem. Ideally, a bit of kit I could measure horizontal distance (for canopy spreads) and heights on would be perfect. Sub £500 is probably what I'm looking to spend. Appreciate any input, particularly from @Sorbus International Ltd etc Thanks
Hi all, im interested to hear what software/hardware any tree consultants/surveyors on these forums are using At present we are using a set of Trimble recons running Trimble terrasync to collect data in the field. These are extremely rugged with immense battery life. We also use the Trimble GPS Pathfinder Office desktop Software as a means of converting the collected point/shape/line data into a format that we can use with autoCAD. This set-up is diverse enough for pretty much any survey except the very small, where data entry becoms counter productive. lets hear what you guys use and what you think?
Hi, I have developed a two part piece of software, one for office and one for field. I need a few people to trial the system, anyone interested? The main software runs on PC or MAC the field software runs on iPad (either type) I'm working on layouts that work with iPhone. For more details email firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks
