waterbird posted a topic in Forestry and Woodland managementVolunteers needed to help manage our 27acre woodland on a 45 acre farm. (December 2014 to March 2015+) Most work will be to help with extracting, felling, & planting trees. Plus some firewood chopping, milling timber, and various bits of work around the farm (chicken feeding, general maintenance etc.) Accommodation is in a caravan out on the land (2 caravans available), self-catering on a WWOOF basis (willing worker on organic farms) which means you volunteer and get a small contribution towards food. There is also a solar-shower, outdoor cooking space, sauna / lake & lots of gorgeous woodland - but it is 'out-there' and means being reliant on a fire for heat, and a spring for your water. Send me a pm or email if interested or you know someone who might fancy a month or two helping out in the woods in South Devon. All the best Doug
Hi, 27 year old guy looking for work experience with a business or individual in Glasgow. No tickets just yet but I own and use a chainsaw when the wood pile starts complaining too much. I have my own PPE as well. I'm prepared to volunteer my services for free until I've demonstrated that I'm going to be a reliable and solid worker. I'm not looking for any handouts just an opportunity to learn. May well be doing the Level 3 Arboriculture down at SRUC Dumfries end of Oct or might try and gain tickets individually if an opportunity presents itself. I've spent time in Norway with a chainsaw carver and some time in Sweden with a Welsh ex-forestry guy. We spent the summer building husky kennels out of the surrounding forest haha so I have plenty of experience on ground level. Thanks, Rich Mobile: 07933136253
Hi I am looking at a career change and tree surgery is my ultimate aim. I would love to shadow/volunteer/experience a few days with a tree surgeon. I am based in London and am available any weekends really. Anyone help would be hugely appreciated - I'm incredibly eager to learn and pick things up as quickly as possible. Cheers Will
