There are many reason for felling trees in domestic settings; disease, storm damage, over grown or in the way
of a proposed building project.


All of these are valid reasons but what to do with the felled tree;

Rather than having the trees that you and your family have grown up with and have come to love cut up for

firewood why not have them milled into planks, dried and made into furniture.

The same system we use for milling trees in forests and woodlands can be used in gardens and most domestic

in particular areas with restricted access.

Window of opportunity:

October - March is the best time of year to have that damaged tree felled, then we can mill it to your requirements

ready to take advantage of the first drying season.


Flexible approach to Tree Milling:

Control over plank thickness: If you have a specific use for the timber and have a cutting list we will be happy to

work to it.

Advice on how to store and air-dry the timber.

Kiln drying service (length at present limited to 2.4m)

No need to go to the expense of having felled trees collected by lorry for milling off-site.


Which process is best for your situations;

We use our chainsaw mill for trees with limited access

such as footpaths or pedestrian gateways.

Where there is suitable vehicular access our mobile

bandsaw mill is the ideal machine for milling trees up

to 30" in diameter and 10' long.
With this mill we can accurately mill square edged boards
from 1/8" - 7" thick up to 22" wide, the kerf of the blade
is just over 1mm.

In situations where the tree is to large to fit the mill we

will break it down with chainsaw mill first.



Below are photos showing the process from fallen tree to planks sticked out for drying. 
The tree shown is a Walnut
tree that feel during Storm Doris in January 2017. 

Because the main trunk diameter was over 36" it had to be milled into quarters using our chainsaw mill before being

loaded onto the bandsaw mill. 

The milled planks were left to dry at the clients property and will eventually be made into floorboards for use in the

entrance hall of the house.

The client used some of the larger planks later that year for work surfaces for their outside kitchen at the property.
