Hey guys, I have got a monkey puzzle tree to take out at a farm! The trunk seems fine but I haven't felled it yet and the question am wondering is does anyone know of any firms or people who would want the wood! It's about 20 m tall and 45 - 50 dbh! Cheers Joe

Mark, you do realise that the above post was from 2012?!  That MP will be either tables, vases or rotted away by now!

 

Good luck with your enterprise; you seem to have made a couple of good local contacts via the other thread.
