Another firewood bargain

Recommended Posts

I’m assuming of course that it’s only any good for firewood, with that amount of root ball!!

I think this might be my favourite one yet - £30 for a ten foot tall tree, including the brash!

Yes but there will be a weekend wood warrior some where who will go and do it with his new Aldi chainsaw and think he is getting the bargain of the year, Priced a job several years ago near a friends house which was about a dozen Leylandie,s, bloke at the house said i was way to expensive at £550, so he did something simulare and got them done for the cost of a new telephone wire, new guttering  and a ne sky dish, it dont pay at times to scrimp,

Had one like that years ago. While cutting a big, wide hedge, next door asked if I could cut his side as well.  I replied I couldn't reach, but would cheerfully come round and do it, if he crossed my palm with silver. He replied that he wasn't thinking of paying. I replied that I wasn't thinking of cutting it for that price. I later heard that he'd driven twenty plus miles each way to borrow a cutter from a relative, cut it himself, and then driven twenty miles each way to return it. Bargain. 😁

Yep that sounds about right, ,one thing i think i can say safely at the moment is, since this Covid started 9mth ago, i have come to the conclusion that there is a lot more people with only one brain cell than there is with 2 brain cells,,,
