  1. Cutting so low as we need the curved grain for the Hurley, straight grain planks firewood unfortunately. Felling a lorry load of butts involves plenty of edging for our cutter and even more when stoney ground.
  2. Well worth a go, let me know how it goes. It will make it more difficult for us to travel and bulker lorry’s could stop going because of possible delays at the port, not ideal.
  3. Hi all, Dean Ryan here from Ireland. I'm looking to locate more supplies of ash throughout the UK for hurley making in Ireland - before Brexit and ash dieback halts our visits. For hurley making we need fast growing straight white ash, with diameters ranging from 25 - 50 cm in DBH. We need a good flare at the base of the tree(a minimum of three curved roots). The ash must be free from defects for e.g.(no brown heart, butt rot or badly affected ash with dieback). I'm only looking for the butt of the tree from ground level up to 1.3 - 1.4 meters long, the rest of the tree would be for the firewood or milling market. We need a minimum of 130 good butts to be worthwhile for a lorry load. I'm paying top price per m3 for good quality ash. My cutter is felling upwards 70 - 100 butts per day, a quick process. I'm appealing to all people in forestry from UK woodland owners, foresters, harvesters or contractors if you come across such ash or know someone who does, feel free to drop me a message anytime and for more information. Thanks, Dean. 00353 868427522(Whatsapp & Viber).
