Tree Felling 4 Free Ply 516619

I provide a free tree felling service to private individuals, farms and business within a 10 mile radius of Plymouth, If you have one of the trees listed below we may be able to help you.
List of tree we do fell. Ash, Beech, Oak, Sycamore & Maples, Hornbeam, Hawthorne, Ceder, Rowan, Yew, Most Fruit Trees,

Trees we do not fell. Alder, Birch, Chestnut, Cupressus Leylandii types, Elm, Eucatiptus, Pine, Poplar, Spruce, Willow.

The trees are felled, logged and removed, the owner of the property has the small branches and twiggy bits to dispose of, or if it wont cause a nucance to neighbours, I am happy to burn it for you for a small price.( typically £25)

Please note we do not carry out stump grinding

Both the client and I benefit from this service, I get wood to heat our home and you get your tree removed for free.

There are a few points to be aware of, ideally the tree should be in a location which does not pose a direct danger to the public (the proximity of footpaths & roads, neighbouring property / fences suspended cables, greenhouses etc ) and the felled timber needs to be extractable from the site without too much difficulty. (Large trees can be felled branch at a time using a roping method.)

Please note I do not carry public liability insurance as this cost makes the whole operation pointless. I can buy logs for the whole winter for the same price as the insurance premium.

I have felled trees for years without any problems but have no qualifications to prove, it as I dont to be a parent. If you would like to make an enquiry or need more information please give me a call on 01752 516619

Old English wood rhyme

Beechwood fires are bright and clear
If the logs are kept a year.
Chestnut's only good, they say,
If for long 'tis laid away.
But Ash new or Ash old
Is fit for a queen with crown of gold.
Birch and fir logs burn too fast
Blaze up bright and do not last.
It is by the Irish said
Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.
Elm wood burns like churchyard mould,
E ' en the very flames are cold.
But Ash green or Ash brown
Is fit for a queen with golden crown.
Poplar gives a bitter smoke,
Fills your eyes and makes you choke.
Apple wood will scent your room
With an incense like perfume.
Oaken logs, if dry and old.
Keep away the winter's cold.
But Ash wet or Ash dry
A king shall warm his slippers by.
