Thank you - that is great to know - a real releif as I have had two quotes that were triple that and there is a very vulnerable old lady whose garden it is in... trying to do my best to get it sorted in a way that doesn't impact on her. Or reek havoc with my savings. Thanks again.

I think you misread my previous post. I was saying that the £500-700 was not realistic, expect to pay more. 3 times the amount might be a bit over the top, but impossible to say without seeing the drag etc etc

To remove that from your back garden I would be charging over £2000.
The trunk appears to lack burrs or pippy so is worthless.
Also very few sawmills will accept garden trees.
It’s a big removal job I’m afraid.

I was thinking a couple of grand when I saw the pics. Where in the New Forest are you?

Around here 100% someone would remove that free of charge, maybe even buy you a drink for it. They may or may not tidy up the brash.

 

Different areas have different economies though.
