  1. Hello, I am looking for felled trees no more than 70cm in diameter in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area and within 100 metres of parking. Tree species of particular interest are oak, hawthorn, hazel and birch though other species will be considered. If you or someone you know has felled trees on their land and wouldn't mind me collecting the landowners permission, then please let me know. There may be a deal that can be done for doing so. Regards, Theo
  2. Hello Arborculturalists, I am looking for anyone who wouldn't mind granting me access to remove fallen trees in woodlands in the Oxfordshire or surrounding area. Trees must be no larger than 50cm in diameter and recently have recently fallen/felled. Species of particular interest are Birch, Hazel, Hawthorne and Oak though other tree species will be considered. If you are a land owner or know of a landowner who wouldn't mind fallen trees to be removed from their land, please get in touch. An offering or access charge can be made for suitable trees. Thanks for your time, Theo

  5. I've used it for roughly the same time and had one delivery, so don't be too jaded. From this one time, I would say that it is important to be flexible about delivery and to make the delivery as easy as possible for the arboriculturists.
  6. Hello, I am looking for any felled trunks and branches that have been left in Oxfordshire or the surrounding counties area, aren't too rotten and whose landowner wouldn't mind me operating on their land. If you know of any wood that meet this criteria,please let me know. I would be willing to pay an access charge for the wood depending on wood quantity, quality and site logistics. Regards, Theo
  7. Check the wait limits on your vehicle. I almost fill two 0.9cm cubed bags when I go to woodland but don't fill the second bag up completely as they both must weigh about 450kg-500kg as wet weight and the weight limit is 550kg in my Mazda estate. Don't know if the weight includes the driver so that is why I don't completely fill the second bag.
  8. Have you any photos you could post of the wood? I may be interested if there is enough of it and it is relatively dry.
  9. Is this wood you have or are you looking for a haulier to transport timber from a site to a processing plant? I am looking for timber in the Oxfordshire area but I would be using it for firewood.
  10. Really interested to hear you are working with horses to extract the wood rather than machinery. It would definitely be worth seeing how much the horses could drag and how far they could drag wood for to understand the horses capabilities and also the financial side. Also consider the gradient that the horses are working on if there is any. How many hours of work would you be offering? I have a small battery chainsaw but it should be enough for 300mm diameter trees.
  11. Yeah I might try that. Hopefully they're just as helpful in the Scottish Borders as they are in Oxfordshire.
  12. Thanks for your advice Will C. I have contacted a few local tree surgeons, so hopefully they will reply.
  13. Hi Doug, The firewood is for personal use and for my mum who relies on firewood to some extent. I have set up a tip site now. However, I know that some Tree Surgeons leave the wood where they've sawn it,so I thought I would pose the question on here just in case a Tree Surgeon had left wood anywhere in Oxfordshire. Regards, Theo
  14. Hello, If anyone has any recently felled trees that have been left decomposing on flora in the Oxfordshire area please let me know. These felled trees should be less than a year old (nothing too rotten), less than 80cm in diameter and accessible by wheelbarrow. I would be willing to pay a small fee of around £5-£20 per month as a site access fee (depending on wood availability, wood species and distance at your site) and would be very quiet with my battery chainsaw and axe. I would especially like to hear from farmers or anyone with small patches of woodland. It goes without saying that you must be the landowner to grant me permission to the wood site. Regards, Theo
