Leylandii Wood

9
Posted 1st Sep
Hi All,

I have several leylandii trees (40 years old, 14 metres high) that I am cutting down to replace with bushes.

Any profitable/useful ideas what I can do with all the wood ?

If it makes any difference, I like in the Bristol area.

use freegle just to get rid of it
Those with log burners may snap it off your hands for free, saves you disposing if it.
How thick is it? Make tree stump to site on.
Sounds like a medical problem!
Chipper and mulch?
It would need to be dried for at least a couple of years before burning as it's a very resinous wood. Burned green it would give off a lot of smoke and creosote.

They range from 10 to 24 inches in diameter.

Yeah, I could make a couple of seats, come to think of it, make a few and put them round a fire pit.

Thanks.

I know people with log burners don’t rate it as great.

I’ll keep some for a fire pit for next year, but I have way too much left over.
Our towns local crimbo lights switch on has been cancelled due to covid, so I doubt they'd be doing bonfires cos that attracts thr biggest crowds and rooads get gridlocked
