  1. Hi guys, I have a rather strange request from a customer for 2 Oak logs from Sherwood Forest. The logs will be milled so needs to be of a decent size (ideally 3m length with 30cm - 60cm diameter but we can discuss the details) and preferably green. Also, I will need a felling licence to prove where they are from. Delivered to CM17. I know it won't be cheap, so if you just so happen to have access to the above and the ability to deliver please drop me a PM and I should be able to make it worth your time. Many thanks!
  2. From 1st September 2019 we will have the following varieties of Oak available in various sizes at the Barcham Trees nursery - all grown in accordance with our Biosecurity Policy. The trees have been harvested from the fields at our 350 acre nursery in Ely, Cambridgeshire, UK and are maturing in their white light pots, available to view, tag and reserve now for Autumn 2019 planting. Quercus:- ilex palustris petraea robur rubra turneri pseudoturneri Oak trees offered for sale will become scarce in the UK market place as the import ban by DEFRA on oak trees imported from The Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, announced on 12th July 2019, has an effect on supply. Enquiries to Caroline@barchamtrees.co.uk
  3. ! ! No more Quercus imports from the Netherlands, Belgium or Germany…..press release Friday 12th July 2019 from DEFRA.!! Tighter restrictions on oak tree imports to come into force. Strengthened measures on the import of most species of oak into England are to be introduced to protect native trees from the threat of the tree disease Oak Processionary Moth (OPM). The bolstered measures will only permit imports of certain oak trees, including:- · Those from OPM free countries. · Those from designated pest free areas including Protected Zones (PZ) - an area of the European Union declared free of OPM. · Those that have been grown under complete physical protection for their lifetime. This Statutory Instrument (SI) – which is due to be introduced in Parliament shortly– builds on measures introduced in August 2018 and applies to all oak trees, except cork oak, over a certain size. The restrictions will cover both imports from overseas and the movement of trees from areas of the country where OPM is already present – in London and surrounding counties. At the Barcham Trees nursery in Cambridgeshire, UK, we have been enforcing a strict Biosecurity Policy for a number of years. Our trees are supplied free of OPM. Visit www.barchampro.co.uk

  7. Hello, I know this is a massive newbie question but as this is the place for people in the know, I thought why not? I am currently using a farmers yard (a friend) to store my chip and logs (and lots of cords) we are starting to reach max capacity for all now. My farmer friend reckons there are at least 2 articulated lorries worth of chip and many many many tonnes of timber. My question is do Biomass plants accept our chip or do we have to go through other means? If they do how do I get in contact with them? Also, who would be the right person to talk to about taking the large cordwood off of our hands? Happy for it to be professionally chipped or for firewood processing. Basically looking for someone who wants to buy either: my woodchip, timber, logs (in large scale happy to sort the delivery) If it helps I am based in Basingstoke in Hampshire. Many Thanks,
  8. Hello, while doing some work in the woodland area I work in. I came across these two. Probably fairly common but not up to speed yet on the various fungi. This same tree had chicken in the woods on it earlier in the year.
  9. Hi ! I have set up a business selling kilndried oak wood that comes in 1m3 crates. We are very happy with the looks and content until a client said the logs burns too quickly...I have measured the moisture content which is between 10-13%, too low for the perfect burn range. They are stored on an open but rain tight barn... Can please someone give me a suggestion on how to re-moisture these crates in best and easiest way. I can't starting mixing the crates with seasoned logs as this is too much of a mission. Can I spray the crates with water? But the under layers won't get re-moistured...also would this risk to mould the wood? Or will the logs automatically pick up the air-moisture now once the autumn arrives? Please do help me as I don't want to loose any more clients and this business means a lot to me! All the best, Sophia

  11. Looking for some advice, I milled an Oak slab from a stem I felled about 5yrs ago which I then let sit for about 2yrs before bringing it in the garage to work it, figuring it would be sufficiently seasoned. I was planning on turning it into a table so I’ve planed it and started sanding however it’s developing a crack which I’m convinced is spreading. This is my first attempt so excuse my ignorance but is it likely to simply split in two and if so is it doomed or can something be done to prevent it? I’ve attached a couple of pics which don’t show it fantastically. It’s a really nice piece and I’ve invested a lot of time into it now so don’t want to give up on it too easily similarly I also don’t want to press on and get rid of my existing dining table if it’s days are numbered. Any advice would be much appreciated! thanks in advance, Joe
  12. morning folks, found these emerging / crawling about on the ends of recently felled oaks, only in sap wood area, they were live yesterday ,but it was lashing it down with rain so did not take photos, they were actually springing off the logs onto the ground believe it or not, now, 24hrs later all appear dead and much fewer in number ,and having been sprayed with insecticide this am even fewer alive I hope..... curious to know what they might be larvae of.. looked like a small maggot, so assume from a flying insect, I am not into entomology so am at a loss, presume not the processional oak moth as these appear to form nests on surface of bark.... but there were thousands of the things yesterday.. hope somebody with more knowledge can enlighten me. cheers in advance Tim
  13. I’ve read a lot about oils and wax but I can’t find anything which gives the finish I am after suggesting to me it can’t, which is not a word I like to use, be done! I would like to keep the sanded matt finish on an oak slab (table top) but bring out the grain, without colouring too much, yet protect it from the kids spilling their cereal or the misses her coffee. Am I looking for tartan paint or is there a way of achieving this? The slab has good colour/grain without any treatment so I’d take a protected matt finish over bringing out the grain if it’s a case of one or the other. Any assistance much appreciated, novis at work!
  14. I am in the final stages of purchasing a 1930's semi-detached house in south-east London. During the purchasing process, I have found out that the house had its rear wall underpinned in 2008 to stop subsidence which was identified as being caused by an circa 80-year old oak tree which is sucking all the moisture from the clay soil. The oak is located on an unadopted side road 16 metres from the house's back wall. The insurance company drilled 3 bore holes around the property and did DNA tests that revealed 80% of roots present were oak (it's the only oak in the area). An ornamental acer and cherry (the other 20% of roots found) were removed from the garden. Unfortunately, in 2014, the property began to subside again, so the insurance company underpinned the house's rear wall once more with 3.3m of concrete, which they call a 'root barrier'. They tried to carry out works to the oak tree in 2014, but neighbours formed a campaign group which has resulted in the oak being given a TPO by the council. The vendor, the the vendor's insurance company and the underpinning specialist that did the work all say that the oak roots can no longer get under the house to cause further subsidence as the oak's roots will not go that deep (3.3m), but my building surveyor says that its only a matter of a few years until the roots go under/through/around the barrier in their search for water. In your opinion, will the oak be able to circumvent the 3.3 metre deep root barrier? Any advice welcome!
  15. Hello Arbtalk Members, I was hoping someone could help with confirming a tree identification. I live in Essex with a North Facing garden (open to fields) in which I have, what I have been told, a Turkey Oak. It is multi stemmed and around 50-60ft. I want to know for sure what it is because it behave very differently from the oaks around it. It is limp whereas the others are sturdy, it gets its leaves later and starts to shed them much earlier, even as early as July, along with a lot of dry twig and branch breakage (it does have new growth each year). It does not produce acorns but instead sheds hundreds of clusters of pea size dry black pod like 'fruits'? that I cant find images of on the net (do not appear to be gall fly oak wasp balls). There is some bark damage/rot (not sure) I have tried to post some helpful images although can take any others needed. The leaves and twigs pictures are example of what is falling in July. Really appreciate any guidance you can give. Thanks in advance.
  16. Here is a little video I made of a huge oak we felled the other day (You may need to select 1080p/60 on the little cog setting on the video for better quality)
  17. I was removing dead wood from a Pin Oak on my folks' property and noticed several of the branches I was removing had pebble size black splotches along them and this large deep red fungi growing out that looked like dried cranberries and felt like cold flower petals. I took the pictures a couple days after removing the limbs and by then it had turned black and shrunk to a third its size. If it hadn't been for the fungi I'd have laid the ramial wood in piles around the base of the tree to decompose. Instead I dragged the brush farther back into the woods. I'm fairly new to tree work and fungi. Can someone ID the species?
  18. Looking for hi ab or artic load of good quality oak in 8-12ft lengths ish. 18inches to 3ft in diameter. Delivery to near Tring, Herts.
  19. Hello everyone, First of all, thanks for taking the time to look at my post. I look forward to getting some advice. I have a question about our oak tree which is around 3 metres from a corner of our house. I have a few question marks about the health of the tree and want to make sure it's not in any danger of causing damage to person or property, be it our neighbours or our own. The house was built in 1927 and we think the tree was there before it was built. The tree is under a TPO (Tree Preservation Order), so we know any work done on the tree would need to be applied for through our local council. It's a lovely tree and it would be a shame if the tree was unwell, but if it presents a danger then needs must. It's been pretty wet and warm lately, everything in the garden has been growing quickly. It's also been the sort of weather that is ideal for fungus to grow. Quite high up in the tree, perhaps 7-8 metres up on two sides of the tree I've noticed some yellow fungus growing on the tree where in previous years the tree has been cut. I couldn't say when these cuts were made. I've read in a few places that the yellow fungus might be Laetiporus sulphureus, which means it might be causing brown rot in the heartwood and possibly in the roots too. With the proximity of the tree to the house and as the tree lies close to the border with a neighbour, we obviously don't want to take any risks. There is already a bit of a question mark as there is a hole further up the tree which you can put your whole arm in, the weight of the bough that extends over our neighbours garden is being supported from that area. The leaves of the tree look healthy and we got a very large crop of acorns and leaves in the previous years. I will attach photos to the post. Please feel free to look at them and please do reply.

  20. Morning all We have a lot of oak a get away from site. two trees, the largest being approx 2m DBH. we have a tractor with medium sized grab with a trailer so can deliver, but needs to be as close to site a possible as I'll have to do multi trips and it is not a fast tractor! If you have a big grab and trailor set up then your more than welcome to take the lot, or as much as you like. Any questions please ask. Or any ideas of who might be interested welcome. PM me with a phone number and I'll call you back. thanks for you time. Ed
  21. Hi Guys I have a huge Oak tree to buck, it was felled last year and is getting harder as we speak. It is 7 ft diameter at the base, and lying flat in a field. I have a couple of small Makitas, and a Stihl 390 with a 20" bar. I am thinking of getting a new Makita 9010 and understand that it is the same as the Dolmar, but just a different colour. I want a saw that will do the job and last, and I understand that the Dolmar Makita is an old proven but heavy design. When bucking, the weight of the saw will not be a concern, but I am worried about starting a 90 cc monster with no decompression valve. Have any users had experience with the saw, and is it easy to start? As regards bars, again I understand that the studs can be changed to fit longer bars, but would this invalidate the Makita 3 year warranty? It would come with a 30" bar as standard, but that would not go through the 7" diameter trunk, so I would have to cut the trunk into smaller pieces. Is it worth buying the Makita, and should I stick with the standard bar, or go for a modified one that would take longer bars, or should I persevere with my 20" Still and just spend the money on lots of shiny chains? One last question, are the Oregon M chains worth using in hard oak? Many thanks

  24. Hi, I have three sections of Oak trunk measuring about 2.5 foot wide by 4 foot long in my garden that need cutting up and removing. Ideally I would like to mill them into planks so they can be used to make something later, however, only access is through the house which means any equipment would need to come through the front door. If all else fails I will need it cutting in to fire wood if I can't get it milled. Needs doing in the next two weeks. I should say they have been sitting uncovered for a year so I don't know if they are now no good to use other than for fire wood? Can anyone help? Many thanks
