Ash tree's suitable for hurley's

Recommended Posts

Gerry Ryan here from Abbey Sawmills, Ireland.


I'm enquiring in relation to ash tree's suitable for hurley's and if any Forestry worker comes across this product from there line of work.


My team and I have over 20 years experience in Forestry(felling, saw milling). We have full public liability and the required chainsaw certificates for felling, and my tree surgeon will fell roughly 50 - 70 ash tree's per day.


Ash suitable for hurley's description


The ash tree's suitable tend to fall in the 20 - 60 year old span,with a breast height diameter of 20 - 50 cm being the optimum range. Only the bottom 3 - 4 feet (1.3 meters) of the tree is suitable for hurley's which leaves the rest for chipping's,milling or fire wood. I am currently paying in the UK for ash tree's suitable for hurley's £ 230 per m3 for quality ash.


I can also provide pictures of the ash tree's which we have sourced throughout the UK,Ireland and other European countries this past year and also a video that will show the type of felling that takes place if interested. References from past work in UK woodlands/Estates and UK Forestry consultants available upon request.


Yours sincerely,

Gerry Ryan

For the many enquiries we have had about our minimum requirement to travel to the UK for ash tree's suitable for hurley's. Our minimum load to travel would be 30 - 50 suitable tree's.
