Hardwood logs

Recommended Posts

I work for Northumberland Wildlife Trust based in Gosforth. We take out hardwood now and again but our sites aren't usually that accessible for machines so when we want timber extracting we usually use an Alaskan Mill (limited to 90cm from memory).
If you're after planks we might be able to supply something if you let me know what size. We have a few planks (oak, sycamore, ash, cherry) which have been air drying for a few years but we don't dry much.
We're currently taking out larch but may have oak, sycamore and a few cherry soon. Maybe some aspen but I doubt that's of much interest.

Send me a msg and let me know what sort of sizes you're after.

HI Mark

i work as a ranger for Urban Green Newcastle, we are a Charity that looks after many of the parks and countryside sites in Newcastle. We've got various logs lying around that i've been wanting to mill when i get a chance (beech, yew, oak, cherry, sycamore) and we've also got some big stuff scheduled to come out which should have some nice slabs in it. I'm pretty sure we have a couple of dry Oak slabs in the shed but they may already have a purpose, i'll check.

let me know what you're after
