Disposing of rubber gloves and used tissues on the riverside walkway.

Iola from Awapuni

It is disappoint to see all the unhygienic tissues and used rubber gloves on the riverside walkway. Normally I would pick up litter in my walks to the park and riverside, but with Covid 19 in the community and 2 people with infections who have not been overseas, naturally I am not going to put my health a risk. Could people please be careful with what could be a serious infection source to the public? Dispose of your waste products into the rubbish bins, or carry a paper bag with you to take home to put into the landfill rubbish.We will need to also protect the Council workers who are emptying these bins.

Driveway repairer wanted

Tabby from Feilding

Hi neighbours,

My driveway has become uneven, I think it's due to tree roots as there is a large tree at the end of my drive (see pic).

Is there anyone that can help me in this matter please? Any advice, recommendations, suggestions & guidance welcome.

Cheers

Pruning jobs

Jack from Jacks Tree Services

My name is Jack and I am interested in any large scale pruning jobs in the Manawatu area that the average joe bloggs doesn’t have the ability or the equipment to do. I have many years of experience in the horticultural industry, especially when it comes down to pruning and tree care.

I provide following types of pruning:

* Deadwooding
* Crown and canopy thinning
* Crown canopy lifting
* Directional or formative pruning
* Vista pruning
* Crown reduction
* Pollarding

I currently work as a Nursery Technician for the Manawatu District Council, specialising in propagating native plants. I’ve decided to take advantage of my skills and knowledge in horticulture/arboriculture and use that for something to do during my downtime with a bit of extra pocket money on the side, hence me promoting my services.

NOTE: I am not interested in tree removals nor am I qualified or have the experience to do so. Cutting down trees can be very dangerous. I also do not have the equipment to undertake such jobs. I recommend hiring a professional for this type of work.

NOTE: I do have the proper climbing and safety equipment if a job requires me to ascend and work in a tree. I am not a qualified professional or had extensive training in this particular field of work but I do know how to use the equipment safely and confidently with the proper techniques involved. I’m not a risk taker so each job will be considered through a case by case basis.

If you are interested please message or call me and maybe include an image of what you would liked pruned and I can provide a quote. I can also do an onsite visit and provide a quote that way.

Cheers,

Jack.
