  1. We have a stand of poplar trees ( about 3/4 of an acre.) originally planted under contract with Bryant & May for matches. First felled in 1985/6 with a natural regeneration clause in the felling licence. They are ready to come down and we have a felling licence dated July 2020. I was expecting them to go for biomass and I am led to believe there is about 200 tons of timber. Anybody interested in purchasing ? -mid/ east Essex

    Reasonable size drive with easy access will happily take any free logs in any shape or form.
  3. Hey! Could some help identify what type of tree this is? I’ve looked into it and think it may be a black poplar but would be great for someone to confirm. Its got quite a lean to it and has started breaking my neighbours fence. I’m considering getting it chopped down - it’s about 10+ meters away from any house but is on clay soil where the houses were built in 1900. Is there any risk it could cause heave on any of the properties? Images below. Thanks all!
  4. Ive been advised that the larvae of the clear wing moth feed on the roots of poplars. How significant is this to the stability of the tree. Any advice, experience, info or links to articles would really help. many thanks
  5. We have two mature (9ft round the trunk) white poplars. The wife has taken a dislike to them and is thinking of having them taken down. She thinks it'll be good for firewood but I cringe at the thought the process and storage, let working like a stoker on the Titanic feeding matchwood into our 8kW stove! (Have done it before with Lombardy poplars but I was 10 yrs younger!) Is there any demand for poplar timber as planks etc? We are in West Essex Regards Graham
  6. Before I buy any, wondered if anyone local has some rampant variety I could propagate? Can swap for osier cuttings
  7. Got a job where I need to make several hundred boxes for a distillery which has a lot of laser engraving on them. Tried some doug fir for the engraving and some other pines but it looks pretty crap. Thought of using poplar which is nice and light and there are a few logs lying around waiting to be milled. I cut some thin slices up on the bandsaw and dried them on the stove top and then stuck them in the laser. To say I was impressed would be an understatement. Crystal clear and consistent throughout. I have spent Easter Sunday and Monday milling up 4 logs and even managed to persuade my 19 year old son to help fill the kiln last night! Now to the question. Has anyone kiln dried poplar before. The logs have been down about 4 years and are still soaking wet and heavy. Do I treat it just like softwood and run it a bit harder than I would normally do beech/syc etc. This is a bit of a rush job so time is of the essence here.
  8. Does anyone out there where I can source some descent sized slabs of oak, ash, yew for my furniture projects ? I live near Manchester airport. Cheers all. Gary
  9. Hi, I live in the Wirral area and have 4 Lombardy Poplars being felled this week from my garden. They're each about 80ft tall and their trunks 3 feet wide. I have no use for them but am happy to give them to anyone who can collect. Message me or call 0772 0021785 if anyone's interested. Cheers.
  10. I have a lot of young poplars (8 - 13 yrs old) suffering damage. The bark is missing in patches and then often this leads to the lead breaking off or top dying at 12 ft+ above ground level. It's been suggested to me that it's squirrels but a) I haven't seen that many squirrels about and b) it's just poplars that are suffering -- oaks, ashes, alders, birch and other tress alongside are unaffected. It happened a lot two years ago when we had a dry spell but then last year and this year when we've had no shortage of rain it seems just as bad. The trees are growing in a high rainfall area (the SW) on very heavy clay (and I mean heavy clay -- the sort you can make pots with straight from the ground). Here's a few pics from my mobile 'phone. Any ideas very welcome. Best wishes, John Russell
  11. I will purchase cordwood (no small pieces) that you cant get rid of or use for firewood i.e. conifer, poplar, willowetc... If you want us to collect it or you can deliver it to our site and weigh in there..... The prices range from £10-£20 per tonne, depending on where you are, amounts etc...... Give me a ring if you are interested in clearing your yard or site (minimum amounts we will collect are about 6 tonnes) and it must be in lengths of at least 7 ft.... Tel.. 07971624646 speak to Deb
  12. I've got a client who wants me to take down a black poplar (Standing stem - pollarded frequently) and a medium sized italian poplar, they are about 10m from properties. He is concerned that the owners of the houses may get heave in a few years time. He was told 8 years ago to take them down in stages, I've heard this was a bit of a money making scheme dreamt up by someone. Will there be heave? He wants me to put it down in writing that there will be no damage. I don't think I can do that, as I am unsure, and I'm not qualified. Any ideas?
