    Birch logs

    Hi all...looking for a bit of advice please. I have approx 30m3 of silver birch from a clearfell I did this winter..I think I'm going to sell it to a log man, but I have no idea how much it's worth. Had a quick google and people seem to be paying 80-100 quid per cube...is that realistic? I might have to go into log production if it is! Cheers.
  2. I have a client who has expressed concern after seeing the root plate of his Silver Birch tree moving in high winds. If at all possible he does not want the tree to be taken down or fall down. I have suggested a crown thin/clean and tip reduction to reduce sail effect and weight which he is happy to go with, but he has expressed an interest in using some form of ground anchor to attempt to stabalise the root plate too. This is a new concept to me but I can see some logic in it provided we can find a system which gets the ground anchors well below the moving plate. Additional points: The plate is not visibly moving other than in exceptionally high winds, the tree is approx. 30' tall, there is no threat to persons or property should the tree fail, the client is aware that any anchor system would be somewhat experimental! All opinions and advice is welcome. T.
  3. Walking in my local nature reserve I noticed a silver birch being taken down so I had a chat with the warden and he kindly allowed me to take a branch away. A week or so later I gathered some tools, froe, axe, large knife and a spoon knife and started work on two bowls. The first step is to split the log into two halves and then start carving with the axe, the axe is used to quickly remove wood and rough out the intended shape. The shape is then refined with the large knife and the spoon knife is used to hollow the bowl. Although the wood was split into two very similar halves the carving produced two very different bowls, the shape, thickness and curvature comes from working with the wood and not against it. Mark
