    arborist position in the caribbean

    I remember a post looking for a trainer for this company, that fell through, so now an employee and trainer in one for wages that do not appear to reward a candidate with the qualifications!

    Accident Prevention

    This thread was ruined when we had the typical response about injuries and death that we can't do anything because tree workers are so special and hazards cannot be controlled. Operate the same way, get the same results. In a week or two spring work will bring a string of deaths and we will...

    Accident Prevention

    100% of your post are useless Levi. I guess I can be abrasive and rude, you can be a waste of air and skin. And do re-read, this whole thread started as a way to think of accidents and their prevention and has grown to a bunch of people who have nothing to say except we deserve more money, we...

    Accident Prevention

    Yes Levi, lets continue to promote the idea that because you can climb a tree you are therefore smarter and safer than all other poeple, and if you do happen to climb trees you knowledge and safety levels are based on tree height. What started as a great thread has degenerated into a few idiots...

    Actually I am very smart. There is no humor with people like you. Go away as I have said you are not welcome on this thread.

    Cusco, Perú tree ID

    Damian, donde esta eres? My favourite tree is the Ficus macrophylla in the square outside Recoleta Cemetario, perhaps because you can get the La Biela special drink and sit underneath.

    Cusco, Perú tree ID

    Oh not a chance. I would need a lot better photos. I wonder if you are thinking it is beautiful because of the Spanish Moss draping from the branches? You might check the Illustrate Guide to the Trees of Peru by Penninngton, Reynel and Daza. It is not really an illustrated guide but rather...

    Accident Prevention

    OH, I am so sorry you operate a chainsaw and you are so smart. I started this thread so why don't you fuck off and keep you insults and wisdom to yourself? Seriously you have never contributed anything useful.

    Accident Prevention

    Absolutely he missed the point, but I do not think he is smart enough to understand that a few climbing and cutting skills does not equate to health and safety, accident prevent, etc. A huge problem in the tree world is that a few hands on skills, some safety gear and testosterone is generally...

    Brown Rot Disease on Kwanzan Cherry

    Correct, this is pretty basic stuff. Monolinia is a world wide genus. Monolinia fruticola is the common North American species. It causes brown rot (of stone fruits) and blight/cankers of twigs and shots. It is extremely common but easily overlook or misdiagnosed as fire blight, oriental...

    Is this Beech Bark Disease?

    I doubt BBD but I would like to see better photos. If little eruptions of orange bubbles from below the bark (in the fall) you likely have BBD but there are a few other possibilities such as Nectria cinnabarina; this species may explain the BBD like symptoms but the still living tree. And it...

    He is not trying to learn he is pretending to be a consultant. Many of his post are about basic things that involve projects.

    Tree Jobs and Job Adds

    Lots of great complaints about not being paid like a professional but are you a professional? What I see is that people with something more than skills alone can take them elsewhere and make more money, people with climbing and chainsaw skills are stuck in the tree climber world and can expect...

    Is this a tree or a weed? /: it is beautiful

    Morus alba, White Mulberry, yes many people think they are weeds but that is perception.
