  1. Hi i'm looking to move to Norway for 6 months and work with the trees there. Has any body got any reccomendations on areas, companies, salaries etc for me please? I have worked as a grounds man mostly but have started climbing and wish to progress my skills further. I have my own gear and UK qualifications for climbing, rescue, chainsaw maintenance and felling, and drivers license. I am flexible on where I work but preferably by the coast! Will attach my cv to this post incase anyone can pass it on for me. Thanks! CV.docx
  2. Planning ahead a little i know but... I'm heading to New Zealand in the New year and just starting to piece things together, decided i want to base around in or Queenstown as i'm well into my mountain biking and the riding scene there is huge. Has anybody who has made the trip in the past have any advice for me? Also what is demand like over there for our industry? I have 4 years climbing experience for my dads business and helped him manage it also, (pricing, dealing with customers, maintaining equipment,etc,etc). Decided if i don't do it now why i've no commitments then i'll only regret in the future. Cheers!
  3. So moving to work in New Zealand has been a daunting but simple process and well worth it! As expected there are epic landscapes everywhere here. I've got a few small tips for anyone looking to do so to make it a bit easier: To work you need a bank account and IRD number: I opened an account at kiwi bank which is really straight forward and most of it can be done online. You need an ID and proof of address. If you're staying with friends or family you need them to give you signed a letter stating you live there with a utility bill with their address on. IRD offshore or non-resident application form. You'll need your UTR (unique taxpayers reference) number from the UK and your ID. You can complete the IRD form at the bank when you go in to open the account. They had a good look at my kit on the way in but it was all fine and worth the hours cleaning. Make sure you get rid of any signs of sawdust and anything which could be a tiny seed. I put my ropes etc in a bag on a cool wash and cleaned all krabs etc thoroughly. Tree kit is very expensive here up to 2x the price (regardless of the exchange rate) so unless you are going to be employed I'd recommend bringing pulleys karabiners and rope with you or get a friend to post stuff as a gift to avoid customs costs. Tree kit here can be bought at http://treetools.co.nz/ or https://www.metrogreen.co.nz/ I haven't found any other good sites yet. The food here is 3x the price unless you go hunting and fishing which is free! So be prepared for that. Rent is also pricey but I'm in Nelson which is apparently a sort-after location you can check prices on www.trademe.co.nz which is like ebay/gumtree with things, jobs and vehicles. I've found some small tree ID books that are OK for a quick reference but nothing comprehensive like the UKs Collins Tree ID book. I'm keeping an eye out. There's no need for insurance whilst working for another company. You are covered by ACC and the reciprocal agreement. https://www.health.govt.nz/new-zealand-health-system/eligibility-publicly-funded-health-services/reciprocal-health-agreements Vodaphone is the main service provider on the south island and you can buy a sim card and plan at the airport upon arrival.
  4. Tree Amigos Victoria are looking for climbers interested in coming to Australia. We are located in Melbourne's northern suburbs. If anybody is interested or knows somebody who knows somebody please contact us at alex@treeamigosvictoria.com.au
  5. I'm going to be be spending 4 months travelling and working up and down the gold coast from February onwards. Was wording if anyone could help me out getting work a day or two while i'm there? Any suggestions much appreciated! Thanks, Chris.
  6. Hi my name is Nathan, I am a 21 year old apprentice arborist in Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada on track to write my ISA certification by the end of summer 2015. Upon completion of my certification I have been strongly considering working abroad for a year in hopes of learning and experiencing new cultures and ecosystems. I consider myself to be physically fit and knowledgeable about Western Canadian Arboriculture and id really like to broaden my horizons in terms of both work and experience, my climbing skills however are more limited as my training has been mostly directed to ground and boom truck pruning although I am eager to greatly increase and establish myself as a climber. All this being said about myself personally I consider myself to be laid back and I have both a strong respect for both people and nature. I have heard Sweden is a great place to practice, however im open and interested in hearing any and all stories and opinions of countries and places to work and live in as well as places that pay higher than usual for professional tree work! Happy and Safe Cutting, -Nathan
  7. Let's see some photos from all the well travelled tree workers. Post photos from the different countries you have worked in
