Here we go – again

It has been quite the hiatus since the last treemagineers blog post in April 2021.

Obviously a lot has happened since, the world has most certainly not become a less weird and challenging place, that much is for sure. For a number of reasons we decided it might be a good idea to pick up the threads and to start uploading a post now and again.

One of the things I realised that I miss when not – more or less – regularly writing for the blog is sitting down and taking the time to think through a topic, to spend the time mulling over a theme, to dig a bit deeper to understand what the underlying key points are. Partly this helps me to structure my thoughts regarding the matter. I have found myself increasingly frustrated by the lack of sustenance offered by social media. I was driving myself up the wall doom scrolling, always looking left and right, as one inevitably does, comparing the life of others with ones own. What better way to respond than to return to the blog, invest some time and effort, collect my thoughts – and, who knows, it might even generate some content that resonates with others.

Thinking about it, I thought it might be fun to try to vary formats a bit more, maybe including topics that you might feel passionate about or have given some thought. Should this be so, please do not be shy to contact me, and let’s get it on the blog…

The other thing that happened was that the Kletterblatt, the publication of the Munich tree climbing school approached me about writing an article on the history of treemagineers. We thought the blog might be a good place to reprint the article translated into English as the interesting thing about writing the article was that I found myself not just writing about treemagineers, but also about broader developments in tree care. For that alone I think it was worth taking this trip down memory lane…

Anyway, let’s see how this reboot goes, thank you for taking the time to stop by.
