  1. For in-tree use, looks good and easy to make. Anyone seen this or tried building one? (Edit) - now I look at it some more, I can see a few limitations.
  2. Hello Everyone, We are looking for capable tree workers to join or team due to months of work backed-up, it will be a better job than you have now with better pay, please only apply if this sounds like something you would like to experience. We are a friendly Arb Approved company in Wimbledon covering various client bases, but with a distinct lack of posh houses, we work in parks and London estates more commonly. We would really prefer a driver with no points, with a fair amount of experience, but not averse to a trainee with tickets. The pay will be more than you earn currently, but this can be discussed after a trial day if you're interested in joining us. I look forward to hearing from you, please email me. Many thanks, Tom tom@microbee.co.uk
  3. My latest project. Chunked down to the crotch. Then felled against the lean (bout 17 degrees). Leaning over septic tank, had to go the other way. Used a trick I came up with, and it worked. This above was the state of the lean. This after making the cuts and cranking the tirfor, tree was at vertical. And down. Tirfor cable slung round the back of the stem, so the stem was in about 45 degree bite. There was no anchor point in the direction of pull, so I "pushed" it instead.
  4. With DEFRA announcing a ban on imports into the UK of Quercus from The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, a timely reminder to source trees from a UK nursery with a Biosecurity Policy which can demonstrate an audit trail on every tree offered for sale. At Barcham Trees we have been banging this drum for years. Imports from Europe have been made available to the Landscape Industry to offer the variety demanded but these imports need to be grown on in the UK, acclimatised and quarantined before sale, to ensure any live or dormant pests and diseases are eradicated before despatch into our glorious UK landscape. At the link below is a PDF copy of our Biosecurity Policy which you can download and save to your computer for future reference. This is a useful guide to refer to from whichever nursery you source trees for planting in the UK. https://www.barchampro.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/Barcham-Biosecurity-for-web.pdf
  5. I have a bit of a 'marmite' situation going on with this tree, can't make up my mind if I love it or hate it! Does anyone else have a view? I think I like the freshness and habit of the young tree but feel the mature tree is rather lollopy. At the Barcham Trees nursery we have some 40-50cm tall trees in 20 litre pots available from September 2019. Sometimes referred to as the Chile Pine, Araucaria araucana is also a native of Argentina. This ancient slow growing evergreen tree is well known for its distinctive long slender branches that are densely covered with overlapping spiked leaves. Amazingly enough, it was once a native of Britain. The fossilized wood from this tree was highly coveted by Queen Victoria. Otherwise known as Jet, it was used in the making of mourning jewellery. Hardy in the UK, they are often planted far too close to houses so have to be removed before they get to maturity. This unusual conifer prefers a moist loamy soil and has great apical dominance drawing the tree up strongly vertical so it is very suited to crown lifting. Handle with care - the foliage/leaves are very sharp! The cones are globular up to 20cm in length and take up to three years to mature. Product spec:- https://lnkd.in/gbPKsa9 #trees
  6. Hey all my arborist friends. What do you think about this product?? it shoots very accurate up to 250 feet and is made of stainless steel and air pressured. The costs seem to be very competitive with other products we have trouble with accuracy. Is it worth it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_h-8gpEJHw

  21. Hi all, if you can help shed light on what tree this is would be much appreciated. They are causing shade over a garden & I'm wondering whether to advise felling, pollarding, or leaving them to get on with it. Only problem is that I have absolutely no idea what tree they are! Thank you for sharing your wisdom in advance! In case the picture doesn't work - it is about 30m tall with a curving trunk. The bark has distinctive diamond shaped lesions in silvery bark. Very wet ground in a flood zone. Here is the pic https://www.dropbox.com/home/Crowdy%20Mill/Amy's%20pics?preview=Photo+12-03-2017%2C+11+01+58+am.jpg
