Simon is pleased to offer an alternative use for your tree. Whether they have been
felled by Simon`s team or by another contractor, why not make use of the timber by
making a garden bench or even a country style kitchen table!
We have the ability to mill timber in the tightest of locations using our dedicated
chainsaw mills often in places larger mobile mills simply cannot get to.
With a current ability to mill trees with a diameter of up to 29”, and with a new
saw currently in the workshop undergoing a rebuild it will allow us to mill up to
a massive 6ft in diameter should you have a tree that size!!

Being able to mill timber from around 1/4” up to around 10” thick and up to 29” wide
we can cover most requests. This is called a through and through cut, meaning a wide
natural edge plank is produced. These boards then need to be stacked in order to
allow them to season correctly and with minimal movement.
A more sophisticated way of milling is called “quarter sawn” and produces a more
stable end product. Whilst not as easy with this style of mill its is possible with
our other “mini mill” but takes longer to setup and is only suitable for logs of
the widest of dimensions. We can also produce squared beams suitable for a variety
of uses and sometimes have access to unusual shapes of timber for fire place mantles
Simon is also a dab hand with his carpentry skills, so why not commission a bespoke
item from your very own tree!
