  2. 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
