 'severely decayed and dying' and 'causing irreperable damage to wall'...... 

' Irrepairable damage '   we put men on the moon for gods sake !  Are these trees stricken with some evil shamanistic powers ?? Who on earth writes these reports??   K

I know what you're saying, but better than not there at all. Equally a slight visual distraction given the field built on was levelled up to almost the top of the wall, at least as likely a contributor to its' state as root damage. IMO again. As a matter of interest given 'valuable target' comment, roughly what would you say five sycamores like this worth? Asking because of 'firewood' in your title, thanks. 

Worth as firewood I assume you mean? 

 

Depends how many meter cubed of wood there is when all split up. Then just x that by the going rate in your area. Obvs worth more seasoned than green.

And vastly less than their value as habitat, biodiversity and visual amenity. Thanks Lowestoft firewood and Squaredy, was stuggling to estimate m3 of trees that size vs felling cost but at least that's a balance of probabilities! Many thanks for all your advice and comments.

A small amount of arb waste that size i would suggest is worth about £25 per ton depending on access.

Thanks for the estimate Marc, every bit of information and opinion appreciated, really don't want to see these mature and healthy trees brought down because a four-foot wall allegedly needs some attention.
