  1. Evening all.. Just thought I'd post an update. Currently around half or just over half way through this site now and all going well. Not easy going doing everything by hand without any machines at present. Hoping to have everything down by spring and then once it's dry enough I can get in to extract timber Liam
  2. Thanks. But ideally I'd like some money for it, if not I'll just log it for firewood
  3. Hi guys Felled this maple today. Any use to anyone and if so what's its worth?? Easy access based in forest Row, East Sussex
  4. Cheers. I'd probably ideally want to stack brash a bit to make it safer/easier to work?
  5. Yeah I'm thinking couple of guys per day. Fell, cut to length stack cord and burn or chip waste as we go then like you say move timber in summer
  6. His terms of low impact is not heavy machines that will turn the ground to crap and lots of ruts etc I think
  7. Hi All Recently went to look at a wood for a customer who has around 3.5 acres of woodland. Around 80% of the wood is Ash, which is pretty much all diseased. The chap wants it to be low impact as well as not being to costly. What would you guys recommend the best way to tackle this? Day rate for couple of guys Felling and burning/chipping brash? Equipment wise I only have a fordson major tractor and quad bike. I was thinking perhaps a couple of guys Felling and chipping brash, then leaving cord where its cut, then at the end of it hire in a tractor and timber trailer off a local farmer I know to shift the cord to roadside. Look forward to hearing your thoughts Liam
  8. Hi all Hope your having a good weekend. I'm toying with the idea of possibly buying a Ford County for forestry work. What are people's thoughts?? TIA
  9. Cheers. I got Felling license on owners behalf
  10. Cheers. At the moment I'm cutting, stacking and burning by hand, no machines Have a quad and 4x4 I can use to move timber as well as a fordson major. I've cut 3 different sizes. Some in 2 metre, 5ft and some smaller of cut bits. Yeah of someone could chip the brash that would be ideal. I'll speak to a local farm I know that do biomass who may be interested
  11. 0.70 hectares. Not sure how many trees, would it be worth me walking through and numbering them? I've probably felled between 30-60 trees already
