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.
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
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.
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.
