We cover the following areas for mobile on-site tree milling;

Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire

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 & 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 dimensions:

If you have a specific use for the timber once milled and a cutting list we will be happy to work to it.

Our milling service:

Take advantage of our on-site milling services and cut out the expense of having felled trees collected by lorry and removed to off site timber mills.

Where there is suitable vehicular access, our mobile bandsaw mill is the ideal machine for milling trees up to 1m in diameter

and 4.8m long.

With this mill we can accurately mill square edged boards from 3mm - 200mm thick up to 850mm wide, the kerf of the blade

is just over 2mm.

Below are some photos of recent milling work we carried out for a client on an estate near Loughbrough.

The trees Oak 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.

The timber was being milled to be used in the making of a footbridge over a stream on the estate, the bridge is a favourite

with brides who like to photographed on it during their wedding day.

As this timber had an immediate end use we milled it to the desired dimensions straight away, thereby saving the joiners a lot of time.

With our chainsaw mill system, trunks in awkward to reach areas or that are over 40" diameter can still be milled as shown in the following few photos.

Felled Wych Elm at Bradwell in the Peak District awaiting milling into planks

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 thats left is a pile of wood shavings

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.

Planks loaded on the trailer being removed from milling site

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.
