what logs have you been chopping today!

Recommended Posts

quick question, I just took down a fairly large willow in one garden and a load of conifer in the neighbouring garden, all must be removed and I was thinking i'll process it and throw the logs into my personal log store. However I have a few large conifer jobs on and will no doubt get more as the year runs on, too much for me to burn so question is would you process and sell willow and conifer once seasoned?

Think I've been cutting up a old apple tree today, the farmer seems to think it was, but I'm not sure.

Will get a pic of the logs and bark tomorrow, for your opinions.

nothing wrong with it if it is seasoned but do not expect the same price as hard wood also willow will readily take on water again after seasoning


Willow is hardwood.

Did 14cube of ash and sycamore on Friday. Taking it over to load in the kiln now.

Did 18t of beech for a customer yesterday, mostly small stuff which is a pain in the backside. Proved to me it's worth paying a little more for 10" and up rather than dealing with loads of small rubbish!
