Salomon Glencoe Skyline


As many of you probably know, Jonathan is passionate about the Scottish Mountains.  This year he is taking part in the Salomon Glencoe Skyline on 18th September raising money for Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance.  The event is a mix of mountain running and alpinism.

"The route features long and sustained sections of scrambling terrain, which is roughly equivalent to moderate standard rock climbing. In addition, the race traverses high and remote mountainous terrain, which at times is impossible to retreat from and may be subject to severe and rapidly changing weather."

Take a look at for more information and if you would like to sponsor Jonathan the please go to his Just Giving Page  If you would like more information on Scotland's Charity Air Ambulance please take a look at their website  Below are a few pictures from his recent training runs:


UK Climbing Competition 2016


Jonathan had a fantastic time at the UK Climbing Competition on 23rd & 24th July, hosted by Arbor Venture  It was a well run event with great sponsor support.  There were 27 competitors in total and a good mix of experienced and novice climbers.  Jonathan was Second at the end of the prelims on the first day and 3rd in the Masters on the second day.  Thank you to everyone at Arbor Venture for running such a good event.  Thank you to all the judges and volunteers to who gave up their time to make it happen and thank you to the sponsors DMM, Honey Brothers, Petzl, Teufelberger, ISC, Haix, Sip, Sawpod, Treekit and Workwear for showing your support and encouragement.  Take a look at Arbor Ventures website and their Facebook page for more information and photographs from the event

Cleaning Windows


Here are a few pictures from a job that was slightly different to our usual work.  The owner of the property always uses long ladders to reach the gutters and clean them out, but there were two Velux windows that she could never reach.  The house is surrounded by mature trees and the gutters and windows are constantly filling up with pine needles and leaves.

Jonathan was able to anchor in two trees either side of the house to get to the previously unreachable skylights.  Definitely safer than perching at the top of a very tall ladder!



You can take the Arborist on holiday...


...But you can't stop him looking at the trees!

Here are a couple of pictures of a beautiful cloud pruned, old, olive tree we saw when we were on holiday in Spain.

Sometimes it's all about the view...


Sometimes, the best part about this job is getting a bird's eye view of the most beautiful countryside there is:
