Woodn’t you rather sell it to us?
YOUR correspondent bemoaning the lack of larger logs (February 1) should contact the Forestry Commission, which runs schemes replacing old or diseased trees with coppices of saplings. The Arundel estate manager could no doubt advise.
Council parks departments also employ contractors who specialise in removing large trees that are cut down, perhaps when only one branch has broken off, in case they become a public hazard. I’m sure the contractors would welcome the chance to sell the limbs and trunks, which are cut into 4ft–6ft lengths, without the effort of sawing and splitting to meet perceived popular requirements.
