We cover the following areas for mobile on-site tree milling;
Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire
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 & 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.
For most people this is the image they have of the inside of a tree, the end grain that is revealed once a tree is felled and cut into logs.
However, this is the beauty that lies within that's revealed as the tree is milled.
Not every fallen tree should become firewood, some deserve to live on.
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.
Our milling service:
Below is a slide show of some recent milling work we carried out for a client on an estate near Loughbrough.
The trees (Oak, Cherry, London Plane and Sweet Chestnut) had been felled 2yrs prior to us being contacted but as you can see the wait did not affect the quality of timber produced.
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 1/16" - 7" thick up to 21" wide, the kerf of the blade
is just over 1mm.
With our chainsaw mill system, trunks in awkward to reach areas or that are over 30" diameter can still be milled as shown in the following few photos.
When the tree is to large to fit on the bandsaw mill it can be milled in-situ with our chainsaw mill as was the case with this large Wych Elm felled in a church yard at the parish church of Bradwell in the Peak District.
There was no vehicular access to the trees location and so as each plank was cut it had to be carried out by hand past the gravestones.
Once the first cut is complete and the outer board removed only then is the true beauty of the inner revealed
As there was no vehicular access to the trees location and so as each plank was cut it had to be carried out by hand past the gravestones.
Once the tree is completely milled all that remains is fine wood shavings that can be cleared away and left to dry for a few months before being used as a mulch.
Milled planks can be either removed from site as shown above or sticked out in a suitable area on your to dry naturally
Not just trees:
One of the problems many re-developers have when they demolish old industrial buildings to make way for new commercial and domestic dwellings is what to do with the huge roof timbers and trusses that so many buildings of the Victorian era were constructed with.
Here at Forest 2 Furniture we think we have an ideal solution to this increasing problem.
With our mobile bandsaw mill we are able to mill unusable roof trusses into manageable useful timber in situ at the building site.
Because the timbers used for construction purposes in the Victorian era were cut from slow grown trees the timber we are able to produce is of a high standard making it ideal for various uses in the new properties.
