  2. Morning everyone, I'm based in Kent, covering kent, sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. We are charging £12-15 per ton depending on clearfell or thinnings. Bunched according to bucking in the wood ready for forwarding. £55-65 per hour, again depending on thinning or clearfell and distance to the landing, bunched into a trailer or bin or to a central landing.

Kind regards David

  9. Evening all, I have looked at a few trees in Marlborough and was thinking of getting in either a harvester or an excavator with a grab (big-ish that will weigh 20t and lift 2t) Can someone quote me for a days work with machine and driver. It would be pollarding 6 willows and either stacking them or putting them on a fire, there is very good access for large machinery, or if anyone has any other ideas that would be appreciated. Cheers Moosie
