  1. Hi all, I haven't used this website for some time. Hope your all well! We have a surplus of Ash and Larch cordwood for sale. The larch has been felled for about 2-3 years now (circa 50 tonne), Ash about 3 years (circa 200 tonne), and has been stored in our yard drying ready for processing. We are looking to reduce some of our stock as the land is needed for other reasons. We have contacts for haulage if anybody is interested. Please PM for prices / phone number. Jack

    Bathroom Worktop Treatment

    Hi All, I've got some lovely 2 1/4" Ash for a new worktop for a bathroom - the sink will be a freestanding bowl to sit on top of it. I'm also going to make some floating shelves out of the offcuts once the worktop is jointed. What is the best treatment to seal it from the moisture? I want to stain it slightly to fit with the darker beams and floor, but then seal it - ideally with a matt finish. Many thanks,

    100t Mainly Alder and Ash

    I have a stack of firewood, cut Aug14, for sale, it is in a field so access is not strictly roadside. I was intending to chip it for the boiler, but we currently have a surplus, hence its for sale.
  5. Hi, I'm going to be marketing some good roadside ash and beech sawlogs, not cut yet, between 30-60cm dbh. I can cut the length to suit the buyer. Based in Monmouth, good access for artic/drag trailers. I'll do the cutting when someone is interested as they are too nice for firewood! PM if interested. Cheers Aaron
  6. Hello We had some tree surgeons round to cut down some ash trees and poison the stumps. From the little knowledge I've gained from the internet I was expecting the stump to be cut round the edge and the poison to be concentrated there, then the stumps covered with plastic. However it looks like (was dark when I got home) the trunk has been scored deeply in a criss-cross pattern across the middle with the poison (white granules, looks a bit like salt) pushed into the cuts, and not covered with anything. I'm wondering if I should cover with plastic bags before it rains? Thanks in advance for any advice
  7. Gerry Ryan here from Abbey Sawmills Ireland. I'm enquiring in regards ash tree's suitable for hurley's and if any forestry(contractor,harvester,consultant) come across this product from there line of work. My team and I have over 20 years experience in forestry(felling,saw milling). We have full public liability and required chainsaw certificates to fell ash. And my tree surgeon will fell roughly between 50 - 70 ash tree's per day. Ash suitable for hurley's description The ash suitable tend to fall in the 20 - 60 year old span,with a breast height diameter of 20 - 50 cm being the optimum range. Only the bottom 3 - 4 feet(1.3 meters) of the tree is suitable for hurley's which leaves the rest for chipping's,milling or fire wood. I am currently paying in the UK for ash tree's suitable for hurley's £ 230 per m3 for quality ash. I can also provide pictures of the ash tree's which we have sourced throughout the UK,Ireland and other European countries this past year and also a video that will show the type of felling that takes place if interested. References from past work in UK woodlands/Estates and UK Forestry consultants available upon request. Yours sincerely, Gerry Ryan Abbey Sawmills Ireland. 00353 861903167

    Coppicing ash and Chalara

    Hi, I have heard it said not to coppice ash, as it gives a greater chance of "letting Chalara F/dieback in". Does anyone know what the best advice is on this? I am currently restoring overstood ancient semi natural woodland mixed coppice in S Gloucestershire and in the light of this advice am not sure whether to let the ash stumps regenerate (which they are vigorously trying to do), or whether to kill them and let the new ash seedlings take over. Any comments gratefully received. Cheers

  10. Hello all, I'm just a lowly wood burning Joe who has recently taken delivery of a large Ash tree, (thanks Erskine Tree Surgeons, Glasgow). Whilst I plan to season and burn the smaller stuff, I cannot bring myself to burn the large Ash Discs I was thinking a table top (can you buy cast iron legs?) or a bench but that's as far as I got. Can you help please? I'm no expert and only have basic tools! (chainsaw, electric planer, chop saw etc.) Thanks, Cris

  14. Found this brown/grey velvety stuff which I think is Fomitiporia punctata on an Ash that is the largest feature in a domestic garden on the south coast that is opened annually to the public. The tree has been pollarded numerous times over the past decades so has a fat trunk and relatively small crown, I'm just curious if anyone knows how quickly Fomitiporia punctata can seriously undermine the stuctural integrity of the host, is it something that would be prolonged by something like re-pollarding or crown reduction to reduce the risk of limb failure or is it gonna cark it pronto? Any advice gratefully appreciated

    Interesting Ash

    Hello good treefolk..Ive recently been browsing through this rather interesting forum,and have been impressed,educated and inspired by some of the posts and threads.Im hoping that some of you knowledgable chaps may wish to share ideas and opinions on an interesting ash that I looked at recently.The client and others living in the locality are very keen to retain this unique specimen for as long as possible(which is a view i share completely).However,he(the client)is from the "let nature take its course"camp(where I often also reside!).In this case,though,we have a beautiful specimen,undoubtedly quite old,that has lost most of its structural integrity.I believe,that in order to prolong the lifespan of the tree,a management plan needs to be implemented.I have suggested a light crown reduction and thin,and reductions to three larger limbs in order to reduce weight.these would obviously be sensitive and if deemed necessary,be done over as long a time span as required.This would be coupled with a cobra bracing system and possibly some form of internal prop system to alleviate the possibility of inward collapse.I have pointed out the obvious soil piled up around the root zone,and suggested immediate removal. I have seen the tree in full leaf and its crown appears full and healthy.Having visited the site many times since late summer,I have seen no fungal fruiting bodies. The old cob barn is being renovated,and tree is approx.8 metres from the building. I would be really interested to hear from anyone with experience in maintaining old specimens like this,and any thoughts or opinions people might have,particularly on the internal prop suggestion.Hope the photos help.Thanks all.

    A shroomy butt or two

    First use of a the 56" mill today on some windblown Ash. Two lumps, one we got 5 x 3" boards off, the other is still a work in progress as the light went. Not a bad afternoon and I must say it's handy being a farmer. Ed has a wee Deutz Fahr and loader that did a fast job of moving this timber into place! Anyway, here are some pics...the upright boards are from the 1st butt. Unfortunately, the 2nd butt was a double edged sword. See the end? I crosscut it to give a fresh end as these logs have been down for around 18 months - the whole of the heartwood was pulpy and fibrous and extends about a foot wide up 3/4 of the length and through at least 14" of the 34" depth (that's as far as we got today). It's a learning curve. We've given up the 1 1/4" slabs we were making because of the beautiful fungus lesions. No idea how they're gonna turn out when dry but there's a square foot of really nice looking timber there - we're gonna ask the "inventive carpenter" who has a unit on the farm. Will probably shorten the butt or quarter it to find the extent of this pulpy crap. That's about it - a few bloopers as this is the first time I've had my large mill out: Upright the wrong way round at the nose of the bar, causing a taper that we only noticed very late on - 1cm over the 30" width or so. Not ideal, but it depends on the end use. A sloping outdoor bench seat, for example... Turning your saw upside down to sharpen the other side of the bar, mill attached, is BRILLIANT but the saw doesn't seem that keen on starting after. A little throttle blipping later.... More ash to mill soon, this stuff green. A nice crotched piece, again about 32" at the base. Lovin' it! Beats 12 year on the ground Oak hands down.
