On-site Tree Milling Service fromForest 2 Furniture
Many families grow up in
the same house and as the children playing in the garden grow and mature so too
does the environment around them.
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 settings in particular
areas with restricted access.
Window of opportunity:
January - 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.
Felled fungus damaged Cherry tree:
The tree in the photos below was at the end of a garden with the only access being via an old stone bridge. The bridge was to weak to withstand the weight of a lorry & crane so the option to move the tree to a mill offsite was unavailable.
However we were able to gain access with our equipment and mill the planks to lengths required by the clients builders. When dry the timber will be used to make bedroom furniture.
