  1. Hello there, I currently have about 150 tons of mixed ash/oak cordwood roadside, and due to have another 300 tons out this season. 2.5m lengths, up to about 18" diameter, straight thinnings ideal for a processor. Location is Monmouth, NP25 5NJ. I can help arrange haulage if necessary. Looking for £60/ton roadside but negotiable. Ring me on 07963 617 144 to discuss or come and have a look. Many thanks, Aaron

    2015 Ryetec KTS 6.7m timber crane, 3 point linkage/trailer forestry grab I'm selling my big timber crane because I now have two and don't need it. It's only been used around the yard to load a sawmill. I've been through it and put a couple of new hoses on it, it's in great condition with not much use during its life. Rams, seals and hoses are all spot on, no leaks. Pins and bushes are all tight as new and have always been greased properly. The grab is spot on and it's on a 5 ton rotator. It's been amazing and has incredible lifting capacity - one of the best from the big brands at around 2 tons close in. They are really strong and capable cranes and great on a trailer or 3PL. The manufacturer spec sheet is here https://www.ryetec.co.uk/kts-timber-cranes/ - they have friendly UK dealers with a good spare parts service. They sell adapter plates to mount it on different trailers. Happy to help load it this end or can potentially deliver for a cost. It weighs about a ton. Offers welcome, any questions call Aaron on 07963.617.144 Cash/BACS on collection Many thanks

  4. Hi everyone, we own 24 acres of pine forest which is in pretty poor health and needs to be felled soon. The plan is to fell up to 75% of it, some of it for logs, but the majority for kindling as this seems to be the best way for us to make some money from it. There's quite a lot of already seasoned wood there which we could get to work on as soon as we have all the equipment required. Already have access to a currently vacant and large sheep building which we can use to store the logs and kindling. We're new to all this though so any advice would be much appreciated. Here are some of the questions I'm currently trying to get clear on: 1. What's the best way of going about estimating how much we can expect to make out of it? I realise that this is going to be difficult to gauge reliably, but assuming there must be a way of getting a conservative estimate which we can work to while we're planning. Any useful contacts for this? Any sums I can apply to get this approximate figure? 2. When it comes to processing the wood, it seems that Kindlet and Posch are the brands to go for, which model would you recommend? How often do they tend to clog up and/or need parts replacing? Given that we have a set amount to get through, would you recommend leasing/renting the equipment or buying with the intent to resale? We have 1 heavy duty chainsaw and 1 person licensed to use it, we can transport the logs to the sheep building using either a pick-up truck or trailer, but what other machinery would we need to process this amount in a few months of hard work? How big a difference will kiln drying it make? is it worth investing in buying or renting a smallish one? And how many people do you think we would need to do this? At the moment, we have 3 of us, but others we could pay to help out provided there was enough profit in it. 3. When it comes to marketing and selling, should we be aiming at wholesalers for this quantity or going to local pubs, hotels, shops, etc and selling over a longer period of time? I'm guessing that the bigger players like national supermarket, petrol station and garden centre chains will have contracts with large scale suppliers so aren't interested in smaller/one-off suppliers, is this correct? If so, do you think covid may have created an opening with these buyers who may be looking to stockpile a product that won't go off? Finally, how much would you expect to sell the kindling bags for to wholesalers? And how much to smaller local buyers like hotels/pubs/shops? Apologies for the barrage of questions! Any help or advice on one, some or all will be very much appreciated! Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to help out

  7. 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

  9. 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,
  10. woodchip pile is clearly separate from timber pile please offload respectively and leave tidy someone is normally around the site if any issues please call for guidance, roots and cuttings etc can be taken separately by negotiation at cost
  11. Hi I'm looking for Hardwood for firewood, anything from 25 tonne up to 200 initially. Based in the North of Scotland (IV12) but happy to arrange our own haulage.
  12. Hello all, I wanted to see if there was any interested parties out there who may want some Timber from a site we are likely to fell near Windsor Berkshire. The timber is a mixture of Oak, Holly, Yew, Sweet Chestnut, Lime and a small amount of softwood. Im either interested in hearing from people who want it and can pick it up in cord length from the site, ( No Cherry picking) It will be free. Another option is just to chip it all! Any one who has a large whole tree chipper and can get rid of the chip too, I appreciate this will not be a free service. The site is perfect for artics, and has some hard standing for processing and removal. I estimate there is approx 60 tone may be a bit more. Thanks, Alistair Magee. 07886028830, message me here on arbtalk.

  17. Its a little after the fact but I simply have to write about the amazing Tweed Valley Forest Festival we visited last year! We visited the wood markets at Peebles Community centre and out on the green as part of the Tweed Valley Forest Festival held on sat and sun. The indoor market had a fantastic selection of beautiful hand made wood products, including furniture, bowls etc and wood for carving. We picked up a couple of Christmas presents and had to leave before we went too far. The outdoor market was really busy – lots of activities for kids to do and crafts to try out. Some of the best chainsaw carvers in Scotland were there competing in Carvefest! They created some amazing carvings – the competition was won by Garry Shand; he won the judges and the people choice for his carving of two bears sitting in a tree. The Scottish Conker Championships were held for the 9th year running, the winners were: Junior – Jack Craigen; Youth – Stuart Head; Adult – Steve Whitehorn; Rogue – Iain Laidlaw. Peebles food festival was there too with delicious food and drink. All in all this is a really great gathering of all things 'woody' each year it is growing and the organisers are looking for anyone making wooden crafts or other things produced in a woodland to exhibit next year. It is a great day out for all the family and runs Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd October 2016 (10.30am to 4.30pm). Further Details can be found at Tweed Valley Forest Festival - Wood Market, Conkers & More!

  20. Morning all, I'm looking to get an alpine tractor and timber trailer to allow us to start extracting from a few small woodland sites in Buckinghamshire. It's all very small scale work (<50t a year) on SSSI sites which means we're limited to low impact kit and access only during dry periods. I'm looking at the AGT850TR and COT30-470 3t timber trailer combination at the moment, from Riko. But I am new to forestry work and was hoping to get some advice! I was thinking of putting 300/65-12 tyres on the trailer along with a crane winch and band tracks as we're on heavy clay and anything to spread the weight will be useful! Anyone's thoughts on this setup would be really appreciated along with anything else to consider. Thanks all!
  21. Hi. I work for a local authority in South Bucks and we manage Country Parks. We have the following timber stacks for sale (as firewood presumably): ALSO, read to the bottom if you are interested in potential felling jobs with timber sale as price). STACK 1...Mixed species but approx. 65% deciduous, all cut 8 ft long, diameter varies from 2"-2ft, average diameter 6/7", stack measures 5ft 9" high, 88ft long. This was cut Winter 2013/14. Good access - can take photos of road surface for interested parties. Warning: only 50 pieces are over one foot diameter. Small bits inc. birch but the big bits all all oak. STACK 2...Grand fir and pine, all cut 12ft, 4"-20" diameter, average 11" diameter, Approx 140 pieces, cut Feb 2014. Good access - same place as STACK 1. Storm damage clear up. STACK 3...Scots pines, all 12ft long. 4"-2.5ft dia, average dia 1 ft, stack size 5ft3" high, 42ft long, approx 300 pieces, felled and stacked spring 2014, 55 to 60 pieces are over one ft diameter. There are a few other bits of conifer and sweet chestnut dotted around on the ground, which we would be happy to listen to offers for if you visit. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions or request photos of the timber or the access points. We also have a sizable clearance job to undertake at one of our parks. Brash would need disposing of (fine to burn at certain times of year). It is under HLS so there are terms and conditions to adhere to. The ground conditions are potentially pretty wet in the winter, so we would be needing seasonal extraction and we want the brash disposed of (burning ok but seasonal - basically winter ok only!) The Felling Licence is in place and calculated as: 5.8 hectares, all Scots pine, approx. age of trees 35 yrs, the dbh is 31. The selective felling percentage is 70% to come out. The licence calculates the metre cubed volume at 600 m3. At this moment I'm just trying to ascertain interest in the felling and clearance job - I may have to put it out to tender depending on value. Certainly public liability insurance and tickets will be required and we would have to set you up as an official vendor etc. but this hasn't caused any problems in the past with official businesses etc. Enquiries are very welcome at this stage. Whether we clear it all in one go or stagger it over five years is also debatable at this stage. Cheers. Matt.
  22. Hello, I'm after some English/European Walnut, It doesn't have to be the best grade just a little seasoned……….. with heartwood of around 8"x 8"!! Can anybody help?
  23. I'm involved with a small-scale felling operation 30 miles north of Stirling, Scotland. The trees comprise Lawson Cypress (10 Ton), Western Red Cedar (15 Ton) and Larch (8 Ton) - weights are approximate. The downside to the felling, is that a couple of us are carrying out this work voluntarily for the Scout Association, so we can only fell the trees over several weekends, which might take a year to complete. I'm looking for someone who might be interested in buying the timber as a lot or in part, but they'd need to transport it off site. The site is adjacent to an old railway line and so is solid and has reasonable access. I would need the timber moved soon after we carry out a weekends felling; therefore, there might be two or three journeys. If anyone is interested or knows someone who might be able to help us out, please reply or PM me.
  24. I am interested in buying a hydraulic log deck for a posch s 360 but don't mind adjusting it to run of the machine anybody know of any anywhere?
  25. I've bin asked by a florist if I have or can get 2 silver birch stems. we rarely come across birch fells so never really have birch timber of a substantial size. can anyone provide these? I'll ask for exact sizes required and then post them up too. cheers Duncan
