    Logs and Tree Debris for Chipping

    I am cleaning up my garden from all the snow damage and still have loads of conifers (and laurel) to cut down. I had an issue with taking green waste to our local depot because are vehicle is classed as "commercial" - 4x4 with a cab. We are waiting on a license for this vehicle but are only allowed 6 visits a year with this vehicle to dump waste and it will take more than that. In addition, my brother won't always be around to move the chained sawed trees for me. I cannot afford to bring in chipping services as there is so much to do. Soon as we get through one lot there is more to do. Can anyone advise if there are any tree services companies who would like the wood for free to chip or log? I am in the Newbury area. If this is posted in the wrong section - I apologise. Can repost if there is a more suitable place. With thanks, Kat

    trees and buildings

    Hi All, I am a new member and I am an architect and arboriculturist, based in Warwickshire. I am looking for some feedback if possible. I am passionate about both trees and buildings, and in particular am interested in locating trees close to buildings. There are a number of barriers preventing this, such as : - the RPA calculation in BS5837 - threat of litigation - lack of arboricultural knowledge that architects have My doctoral research relates to how these barriers could be moved to allow trees to be located closer to buildings taking advantage of all of the widely known benefits. Can anyone comment on how the 12x calculation for single stem trees for RPA was arrived at? The calculation seems arbitrary and doesn't appear to necessarily relate to all situations. I am also interested to know if anyone knows the authors of the calculation or how it was arrived at.

  6. We are a voluntary group and have built 6km of a 26km trail along a river in New Zealand. This is for the community to use for running, biking etc so they don't need to use the highway. We are planting both natives and exotics along the Trail and one of our very generous donors would like to see what we are planting and where so she can follow where her donations are being used. Is there a app that anyone has used which is preferably free so that we can mark on it the 500 trees she has given us so far and then keep marking future trees on Google Maps so she can follow this . Her health doesn't allow her to walk the trail . Any help would be appreciated I cannot find any other site to post on or any program that allows me to send an image of the trail map with the tree positions shown - at a price we can afford.

    Planting Axminster

    Hello I'm looking for a gang of tree planters local to Axminster to plant a couple of thousand trees. Anyone interested? Good Rates.
  8. Hello to everybody... Since August 2017 this year, I have been creating a public record of events in the form of small video productions. They depict the ongoing controversial tree feelings happening in Sheffield to date. I am very keen to hear from any Arboriculturists with their views regarding how they think their industry might be affected, when actions of this nature by Sheffield City Council go ahead. Although some of the videos I have put online may look to be a little biased, I can assure you that my intention is to give everybody an equal opportunity to have their say and put their point across, but unfortunately some videos have ended up looking like my intention is not as intended, for which on my part, if I have offended anybody, I sincerly apologise as it was not my intention in the first place and I can assure you, it is not my intention as time goes by...! Although I have highlighted in the past to all concerned in the videos that their points of view are important, I do believe and understand their concerns for whatever they might be, as to why they have chosen not to speak with reference to what they might want to say if anything at all...! Therefore I am extending my offer to any Arboriculturists as well as those I continue to encounter on a weekly basis. However, what I would like to say now is that each and every individual including myself, must accept responsibility for their own actions, even more so in the presence of a video recording camera...! Are you an Arboriculturist working in Sheffield now or have been and do you want to share your views? I would be very interested in knowing your views either on hear or by a private message if anonymity is your preference. You can message me directly on Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/BANAMAN.Productions/ As an Arboriculturist, have you been subject to any threats or violence either physically or verbally while working on the PFI contract in Sheffield? Have you witnessed any threats or violence either physically or verbally while working on the PFI contract in Sheffield? As any aspect of your job working on the PFI contract in Sheffield affected you in any way at home or at work? Does your future work depend on keeping as many healthy street trees as possible? If you are an Arboriculturist in another part of the country not working on the PFI contract in Sheffield, I would also be interested in your views. Have you been following what is happening in Sheffield regarding the current ongoing tree situation and want to share your view? Does your future work depend on keeping as many healthy street trees as possible in our city's towns and villages? How would you feel if you had to endure what the Arboriculturists working on the PFI contract in Sheffield? If you would like to see a public record of events uploaded to date, please click the youtube link below. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi5IXghZwEoqj61jjjQqW3Q/videos

  13. Hello fellow arborists! So I have a problem and I don't know who can fix it... This forum seems the best place to find out! My friend has inherited a farm through his family, a very big one! It's absolutely gorgeous and the land begins in Lewes near Brighton. As gorgeous as it may be agriculturally it needs a lot of TLC (Tender Loving Care). This subject takes my interest so i'm excited to help although I do not have enough experience or knowledge on everything that needs sorting! For example: The tree's need a serious inspection I have no idea of the possible diseases etc they could have so any tree surgeon contractor/ tree pruning type of service would be great, its a big job he has a lot of trees.. Also Tree stump removal.. Sure there are many companies that do this and yet again its a big job he has/had a lot of trees, is there any companies that you guys are aware of around these areas? A personal recommendation would be fantastic. I have heard Dave Ford Tree Care in surrey? Also Geall Tree Surgery but I haven't had any personal recommendations from them, and we want a reliable company. There are many more things that we need to fix, but that is all on the agricultural side, to another forum I will go! Thanks in advance

Friday May 30th 2014 and Friday June 27th 2014. The course is run in Suffolk by highly qualified practitioners and is specifically designed for those who work with trees, in estate or woodland management, arboriculture, or conservation, and who would like to add to their Continuing Professional Development by learning more about woodland management, protected species (particularly British bat species) and the law. The course is also suitable for anyone who is working towards a Natural England Bat Licence, a barn owl licence, or a great crested newt licence. In order to make sure everyone can gain the most from the day places are strictly limited to 8 and will be available on a first come first served basis.

    Knotweed and trees...

    Hi guys, Basically, i have been watching a large firm with a knotweed problem on a site and where the knotweed is, is around a row of large TPO'd oak tree.. so felling (of the tree's) and removal off site (the knotweed) to a tip was out the question. They chose to put a surface barrier in (a 15mm geotextile membrane) to cover the area of knotweed and allow the knotweed to find a gap around the trunk of the tree and treat with glyphosate over 5 years etc.. my question is, would having the membrane there still allow the tree go have all the nutrients it needs etc or allow it to still grow and function as normal? May sound stupid to some people, but just asking out of curiosity. Cheers guys.
