Question

Morning, I had an ash tree felled on my land around 8 weeks ago. Only the trunk now remains, measuring 2ft diameter and around 6ft length. It's nice and straight, would anyone be kind enough to advise a good way to sell please and what it may be worth? Or indeed whether at a fairly small size, only really of use for firewood?

Many thanks

Looks like a nice clean bit. 6 foot is really a bit short for anything really. Someone would take it off your hands and mill it maybe? But being residencial it could well be full of metal that would damage chains or cutting blades.  But I doubt anyone would pay for it? With Ash die Back there is literally hundreds and hundreds of tons of the stuff flooding the market. 

 

Im not completely clued up on what Ash costs per Ton roadside but lets say £100, wont be more than this and may be significantly less. You have about 450kg there max. So you have £45 worth of Ash there, could be less. Thats if you can get it to the side of the road. If you cant move it then you'll have to pay someone to do so, which I'll guess they want more than £45 for.  

 

So yeh, its firewood.

When cut and split into logs what you have there would cost >£100 if bought in as firewood, should split easy and ready to burn winter 2021/22 if seasoned correctly. We cut up logs like that and better regularly for firewood.

I picked some up a few weeks ago. The woman whose garden it was in was glad to get rid and not have to pay someone for the job. The cutters had promised to come back for it but never showed :D
