  1. Hi all, I am brand new to woodland management and would really appreciate some help and advice. Based in Kent, I have just coppiced some 12 / 15 yr old chestnut from my in-laws woodland that surrounds their farm, all cut to approx 10 ft lengths, nice and straight pieces, ranging from 5inches to 10 inches diameter. It's has been stacked by the roadside for easy loading. Its quite a big stack, maybe 100 - 120 lengths. I am not sure how to price this up so I can sell it. What is the best way to determine how much wood is in the stack, and is it better to calculate in weight or volume? Thank you in advance Matt
  2. I had a large eucalyptus cut down in the front yard a few years back as it was dropping huge amounts of leaves but it has grown back from the stump even though it was ground down. I want to keep one or two of the new limbs. Which ones should I keep which should go? There is a group of three on the left I'm thinking of keeping as they are reasonably straight? Or do they all need to go? Start again and only let one grow from the get go with the appropriate pruning?
  3. Up to 50 units to start. hazel, sweet chestnut, ash sycamore + fast grown straight poles. 1” x 50” ish.. Ceredigion.
  4. I have a 2-acre coppice full of ash, planted about 15 years ago, with an occasional downy birch and willow. I'm cutting a ride through the coppice, and need to fell dozens of trees. These range from sapling "failures" an inch or two thick, to decent little trees about 6 inches at chest height, though most are not that large. Because they were planted so close together (I think 1.5m) 99% of them are dead straight with little to no lean. I have succeeded with the usual notch and back cut on a few larger trees, but the smaller ones are more difficult. They don't have the weight to fall like a larger tree, but if I try to cut straight through I usually trap the bar. Is the solution to cut diagonally, as described in this recent thread? Any pointers or advice much appreciated!
  5. Alright lads and ladies, im after around 20 poles of larch at 6-8" diameter 4 meter length but not too fussy on exact length. Not machined or treated. Im about to start a few round wood timber frames and looking for a small supplier in North England . i know it's a bit of an odd request but there could be a wider market for poles like this in the future with rustic buildings and glamping sites being a popular venture. Get in touch if you have poles in yard or woodland that I could take away ta mike
  6. Hi all, I am in need of a smaller saw for Coppicing smaller hazel trashing scrub etc... Currently I have a 365 huzqvarna which is great for larger coppice but is a bit of a lump when just trashing small stuff. I am open to ideas of all brands so what would you use/ recommend?
  7. Evening All, I'm lucky enough to be in the process of buying a house and outbuildings in my small corner of France. Luckier still there is around half an acre of chestnut plantation, current average DBH of around 15-20cms. Spaced 4 metres apart with 5 metres between rows. Questions: 1. Are these stems too big to effectively coppice? 2. Which other firewood/native species can I inter-plant? (which will tolerate the shade of the canopy, which is currently pretty full, but which will be broken a little by the first round of thinning/coppicing?) I'm aiming basically to turn this regimented mono culture into a firewood producing, wildlife/ dog walking area.
  8. Hello all! I am self employed, and currently looking for work within the West Sussex/Hampshire area! I've been involved in the chestnut coppice industry for just over 2 years. And after spending the last 2 years processing, I now want to start cutting. I hold a CS30 ticket, and am first aid trained, and I am looking for 1-5 days work a week during the cutting season. I have my own transport (not 4x4) and my own equipment. Any experience I can gain would be greatly appreciated. Please email: [email protected]
  9. Before I buy any, wondered if anyone local has some rampant variety I could propagate? Can swap for osier cuttings
  10. I am keen to get into coppicing and would like to acquire an area to coppice. Does anyone know how you would go about or where you could find woodlands to coppice? Thanks Adam
  11. I lack experience and need to quote for felling sweet chestnut coppice, dense, growing 20-24 years. How many tonnes do you think can be felled an hour - based on your own experience? Cheers.
  12. I am currently looking for a small woodland to buy in the south east of England where I intend to establish a forest garden and produce coppice products as well as manage for biodiversity. I'm not expecting it to be commercially viable, I just want to persue my interests while owning a peice of land which (hopefully) be a good long term investment. Any small woodland owners out there have any advice on buying/managing e.g. things to look out for and check/unexpected costs etc. any thoughts would be much appreciated.
  13. Hi I'm looking to source some timber for a sculpture (see below). I need approx 18 3m hardwood poles of a diameter approx 5-8cm - bark still on. Delivered to Liverpool the week of the 3rd Sept. Any pointers much appreciated.
  14. We are getting married next week(!!!) and need 3-4cm diameter / 3.5m length branches for constructing a rectangular wood arbour. We had contacted a tree surgeon who unfortunately couldn't help us, but suggested we post a plea on this forum! If anyone can help in the Devon area, we'd be most grateful and can obviously pay for any branches offered, but any advice at all would be welcome. Thanks Dee & Dave
  15. Has anyone had any practical exerience of SRC? A couple of (possibly dumb) questions arise... In order to minimise transport costs and extract the most energy from the harvest, is there a practical method to dry chip in these volumes on site Rather than chip it every 3 years, if left for longer could it be logged (every 6 years?) Is there a standard bed size / field layout?
