Wanted: Hardwood: Beds, Bucks, Herts

Recommended Posts

If you have any wind blown trees or timber.

I am always on the lookout for timber in the Beds, Bucks, Herts area they want to get rid of..

It's really frustrating at this time of year when there is lots of wind blown stuff around and just can't seem to get to it.

I was at Spa training college today and asked about a huge tree that was blown down. They said I could have a few logs but the rest had to be burnt on site by the head gardener! So I have emailed the general manager.

I would happily come get it from you as long as it’s free/cheap. Any now or in the future please send me a pm.

I am not in the industry just looking for stuff to season for my Rayburn to keep the bills down so not too fussy what I receive.

Let me know if , Tring. is close enough. I would like your Hardwood timber please. Especially if you can just dump it on our drive. This is what I have said on Arbtalk with a little luck so far. It's in my Rayburn as we write! I had to go and get it - no problem.

 

So there must be other places too where they just have to burn the stuff. I have also emailed the local golf course too. As I need a break. I can provide a free log tip site I have told them to save you having to burn it onsite.

 

Other wind blown trees I have seen all belong to farmers and have not yet approached them yet as apparently they get SPS subsidy.

 

I have a VW transporter van I can borrow for the day and collect a load or two. There must be other legal ways of getting wood as we need a regular supply?

Thanks in advance

good luck. Everyone round here keeps it to sell as firewood. I have yet to find a tree surgeon in this area who gives away his wood. you could try peacock tree ecology, he is based in tring at icknield way, or paul lyons (he is on arbtalk) as he is in tring, but i doubt its free

I do a similar thing but am not fussed about wood. I have burnt Willow, Poplar, conifer and cedar and as long as it is seasoned, all is good.

 

You are more likely to get this sort of wood FOC!
