  1. Hi all, thanks for replies, so is quartersawn what most would do? it will definitely make shifting it all out easier and will it make locating the possible bit of metal easier. what lengths would you cut from the 4.8m total, 2 x 2.4m or 2 different lengths still keen for a few big slabs but worried about moving them! cheers jo
  2. Hi all, I'm getting this big oak milled and have some space in a yard to air dry it but looking for different advice on best cuts that will maximise the value but also keep it reasonably move-able (ie. can get 3 or 4 pairs of hands for the day and have to get it out from a back garden but have a log trolley). Not sure whether to mill lots of long wide boards 2 1/4 thick and what lengths or mix it up. I might be getting a summerhouse/storage shed built in the back garden and could use some of it (or all of it ) for that but i feel the real value is in the big slabs as its a big lump of wood! When i felled it it ran forward a meter and ended up just touching the fence so i've winched it back to give some room around it in preparation for milling but now its at a bit of an angle! any thoughts? Stem is 1.2m diameter (almost both ends) and 4.8m long. photos showing both ends. (ps. There was major buttress root damage where landscapers several years earlier had cut right into it when laying the patio! I tried to persuade the clients to keep the tree and just go for a reduction but they wouldn't change their minds.) cheers jo

  10. thanks jim , pleasure working with you! if anyone on here is after any of the wood or knows anyone that might be let me know now just to stack it............ i was thinking of placing in sea container but concerned about it getting too hot in the summer, would most people recommend stacking outdoors for better air flow with a tarp over top section of stack? cheers jo
  11. Well tree is down but we have lost a meter and a bit to a big cavity lurking in the middle of the heart wood at the base, still hoping there is enough good wood left in the stem to make it worth while and deciding what cuts will be best to sell on etc ? Beautiful wood !!!
  12. Free logs to collect. London plane take down , good access . fill your boots ! 07771898887 jo Collect Wednesday , Thursday maybe Friday . SW15 4NN
  13. so what size can you cut with the 880 and bigger bar lo pro and would you still use Granberg Ultimate , if so would you need to get extra lengths to extend it other than what comes in set up from honeybros?
