Default Have chainsaw, will travel....

I'd like to do some forest/tree work, so anything to do with cutting/trimming trees, stump grinding, coppice working etc would be of interest. Heights aren't a problem.

I live in Shrewsbury and can travel.

If you need an assistant, or someone to work indipendantly, full or part time, please give me a shout.

Thanks

Paul

Hi mate,

I'm sure you wont travel up to leeds to chop a tree down in my garden but would you mind me asking how much it would cost (Ballpark) to chop a whole tree down ?

Looking to get some quote but not wanting to spend more than a few hundred quid ??

It that about right or am I dreaming ??

Default How long is a piece of string?

A few hundred sounds Ok, but it all depends on the size of the tree and what you want doing with it afterwards.

Need to factor in the diameter and height, also where all the weight is (which way it wants to fall) and whats around that needs to be avoided. Much easier to fell a tree in a forest, than in a garden with a garage nearby.......

I want to get more practice of felling in small areas, hence putting a call out on here.

If I was any closer I'd come over and have a look for you.

Postcode L35 8LS too far to travel for about 8 trees?
Mostly Leylandii, 1 beech, 1 laburnum, 1 laurel.

Also, are you quallified / insured , or 'dude with chainsaw and ladders!!!'??? (cos I can do that myself!!!).

Backgarden location, so if you want to practice small locations, this'd be ideal... trees all taller than garden is wide IYKWIM.

Pm to discuss if you're interested.

Cheers,
BBB.

when you cut large trees down with houses/sheds/people nearby you don;t just fell it in one go. It has to be cut down in sections from the top until you are left with a stump at the bottom.

Default i cut for cash

If you're looking for a job in the arb industry try arbjobs.com or Complete Tree Care which is an agency for tree workers, if you are looking to get tree work done expect to pay 300 to 600 pounds a day for a fully insured tree gang of three to four people, my advice would be to always check for insurance but especially where the work could endanger people or property. mils
