I did a survey about 150 miles from home in the early 90's. Thought I'd be 
clever / flash and use a dictaphone. Got home and realised the volume control 
was on zero.

When using dictaphones for tree surveys in blustery conditions, SPEAK UP.

I've pretty well given up on dictaphones Jon; the opportunity for missing 
something is great and at least if you've used a bit of paper and a table 
it's instantly apparent when you haven't filled it in. That said we don't 
seem to be pulling in jobs where there's hundreds of trees to inspect, if we 
did then I suspect we'd go down the touch-screen tablet route and cobble 
something from that. But as long as we're not out in the pee-ing rain and 
there's only a couple of dozen trees then paper and pen are cheap and 
sensible. 

I do take as many photos as I can, which with a digi-cam are near as dammit 
free and are as useful as anything. That said my C:drive appears to have 
12000+ tree photos at a cost of 15Gb, although as I've had a digi-cam since 
(IIRC) 2003 perhaps it's not that many....
