Wanted - Ash tree's suitable for hurley's

Recommended Posts

Gerry Ryan here from Abbey Sawmills Ireland.


I'm enquiring in regards ash tree's suitable for hurley's and if any forestry(contractor,harvester,consultant) come 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 required chainsaw certificates to fell ash. And my tree surgeon will fell roughly between 50 - 70 ash tree's per day.


Ash suitable for hurley's description


The ash 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

Yes we can extract the Hurley butts ourselves with the use of our quad bike which leaves no mess to the woodland.

We would certainly be interested as we will be in the UK in the next two weeks to begin felling in an Estate. I will pm you there for more information and postcodes etc.

Kind regards,

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.

Hi, are you still interested in some ash? I own 15 acres that I am currently thinning, 50% is ash and a good chunk is in your size range. I am based in North Yorkshire, nearish to york. It has roadside access and I have extraction equipment. We could even cut them for you. Felling licences are in place already. Drop me a pm if you wish to chat and we can go from there.

Regards Andy
