  1. Hi Simon, we are still looking at different options, so could still be interested. I will dm you more details, thanks.
  2. Yes, will give you a call today if thats ok - [your number from your website.]
  3. Thanks, yes - a harvester / forwarder setup is required as the site is currently too dangerous for manual felling. Ideally we are looking for someone who has a small harvester / forwarder to work on the windthrow area [now measured as 5.5 Ac] without causing too much damage to the tracks and surrounding woodland. Cheers, Alec
  4. Hi, We are looking for an arborist company local to Northumberland who can help with 5.5 acres of 50 year old spruce windthrow. Access to the site is available via a 10ft wide private track, and there are spaces available on site for storing the logs. The site is gently sloping ground. Please respond if you are interested or if you can recommend anyone suitable? Thanks Alec
  5. Interesting, thanks. They are mostly lifted off the ground, stacked like dominoes, and the ground is gently sloping with good drainage. One concern we had for leaving them on the ground with root-base attached, was having birds nesting and other wildlife making a home during the spring time...
  6. Hi, We have about 10 acres of Sitka Spruce windthrow to clear. We want to store some on site, for our own future needs and sell the rest. When it is stored [for example at the side of the road or in a clearing], approx how long can it be there before it starts to degrade/rot? Thanks, Alec
