New to this site. But though was worth an ask. 

 

Ive recently started helping a large estate with thier tree management, they have a large woodland planted with 2 variates of poplar. Originally planted  for matches however that becsme redundant. The woodland is planted so every other tree was sacrificial. 

 

Does anyone know of anyone or companies that would buy large quantities of poplar. As the estate is looking to thin out this woodland. 

 

Any help would be great.

Also - Pop, great for kindling. If you know of any wholesale kindling producers they may be interested. 
 

Or, see if estate is interested in purchase a kindling machine and go straight into source, process and supply of bulk kindling.

If they were pruned at all I would have thought a sawmill would take them.

 

They must be well past their prime now if they were Briant and May planting from the 70s.

 

Several mills used to take poplar for coffin boards and for cable drums (it being generally too weak for pallets) but it's 30 years since I sold any to Barchards, you could see if Chantler Timber still have outlets.

I buy Poplar by the lorry load for milling, and of course I would pay more than biomass prices for decent clean 5m or 2.5m logs.  I don't need huge quantities but one or two lorry loads would be good.  I am in South East Wales - you didn't say where the estate is.
