    For domestic use, must be suitable for indoor fire burner. Parking on site and easy garden access
  8. Just unload into front garden.
  9. A big limb split off an oak tree lately over a bridleway near where I live. According to locals and going by the complete lack of responsibility taken for the land either side of the actual bridleway itself, nobody claims ownership of the land and perhaps never has done for the last 70 years. The bridleways people sent someone to clear the tree as it was blocking the pathway but they didn't take much if any of it away. The body of the limb has just been left covered in chippings in the rough land beside the path. How legal would it be for me to take my chainsaw and mill frame and harvest some slabs of timber from it?
  10. Free tip site for arb chip, log chip & logs. Green waste charged per van/trailer. We do not accept fence panels, grass cuttings, soil or general waste. Open 0800-1700 Mon-Fri, no appointment needed, staff always on site. Large clean yard. Convenient for Coventry, Rugby & Mid Warwickshire.

  13. Hi, I have taken down 2 massive sycamores (over 6ft wide near base), some nice straight lengths up to c.10m. Before I plank to sell I wanted to see if there was any interest in someone buying unprocessed lengths and to get a rough idea of price. I doubt it'll be worth me doing it but figured a quick check on here couldn't hurt! Happy to post photos if it looks like selling is an option. Thanks, Andy

  15. Looking for someone to remove a good few tons of timber from site in Brombough, Wirral. Felled about 24 good size conifers over the weekend. Cut to various sizes but all manageable. Can Access via driveway With double gates leading to rear garden or alternatively someone with log grab and trailer via main road directly behind.
  16. 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
  17. We have approx 25 lengths of large Crack will to remove from a farm in Canterbury. We can fell into the field and process. Due to a water main on the entrance to the field we can’t get a timber lorry in if anyone local is interested please email me at [email protected]
  18.

  20. I have a fairly large Holme oak I am removing next week in Huntington, Cambridgeshire. Is the wood any good? Anyone interested in it? I'll put a pic of the tree...if anyone interested pm me and I'll send some pics of the wood once it's down...

  22. 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

  24. 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,
  25. 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
