Woodn’t you rather sell it to us?

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

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.
