    value of Douglas fir

    From my research it would appear for DF 1.15 m3 = 1 ton , does this usually work for you ??

    Many thanks , do you end up in disputes with ton versus cubic metre , as mostly I will work on volume and only want them to collect when it is raining !!!😅

    value of Douglas fir

    thanks for the offer of help Big J , but it is only a couple of hundred trees so not worth you coming this way for half a days work 😁..... just wanted to know rough value and specs , min top dia and length etc etc ...
  5. Just enquiring as to value of Douglas fir timber , may have quite a few to come down about 25- 30 metres tall , variety of diameters , what would be ideal length and min dia and rough price if stacked for collection by lorry ?

    Adjacent trees and birds

    The law states that it is illegal to "recklessly or intentionally " destroy or disturb birds and their nests , sadly it seems some people take the view that they are absolutely sacred , and as others have said above people try to use wildlife and other concerns as a weapon against others ( nimby versus developer for example ) if there is no evidence of an offence then I can not see any case to answer ....has anyone ever heard of a prosecution for such an offence ??

    Which poplar species is this?

    I have heard it said a lot of poplar was planted for match production and plywood , don't think the precise species matters much as the wood is pretty much the same ,

    Cleaning prunus serrula bark

    Pretty much as above ........how would you wash most things ? mild soapy water ( baby shampoo ) sponge and soft brush , I washed a load of Betula utilis ( and a naked statue !! )a few years ago and they looked fantastic against the recently trimmed Leylandii hedge behind them !!

    HS2 Train/Rail link, Good? or Bad?

    I am concerned that the trains will be going too fast for trainspotters to see the name / number on it !!
