Hi guys,

I'm looking to source small amounts, 2-3 ton at a time, of softwood saw logs (Larch, WR Cedar, Dug fir) in the Gloucestershire/ South Wales area. 


I've been climbing for the last 20 years now and have finally bit the bullet and got myself an HM126 sawmill so hopefully i'll spend less time monkeying around in the trees...

I do still climb, so coming by hardwoods isn't so much of a problem, it's coming by decent sized softwoods that's proving to be tricky - i can get 15-18" diameter Larch no worries; but anything around 24-26" @ 7- 12ft in length is proving to be a problem, so i can carry on making, amongst other things, yurts which seem to be going well!


Space it limited just now hence small amounts. 

Collection isn't a problem.

Any tips or leads would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers J
