However, I discovered that another chap has taken on the work and he has been very helpful, so perhaps you would put his details in the links section please as follows:

If you ever lose a plane up a tree, read the following, submitted by Peter Brock and then contact the man at the end!

Yesterday I lost a plane to the top of a tree two fields over from the pits. I eventually tracked it down but was at a loss as to how to retrieve it (too old now to even attempt climbing trees)

End of story. This afternoon I phoned the local tree surgeon and left a message as he was away in Poole doing a job. At 4pm he called to say that he was on the way to Pymore to help me out.

I drove to Pymore from Lyme Regis and, within 30 minutes, his man had shinned up the tree like a monkey, moved himself out to the plane on some sort of swinging device, tied a rope around the tail and then lowered it gently to the ground.

I was much impressed. Price for doing the job = 20 !!!!!

I said I thought the club would welcome someone like him on the website to help out in emergencies (if Phil agreed)and he seem delighted at the thought. Phil has no objection so if it is possible for you to include his details somewhere, it might prove to be cheaper than cherrypickers for the future.

I was pleasantly surprised by the speed of response and the price. His name is
Carl Stoodley of Forest & Tree Care Ltd: Phone 01308 456218
