Actually, a farmer just up the road from here recently sold a truck load of
Ash butts for "hurley sticks" to a guy from Ireland.... Apparently there's
a shortage over there.....

Hi both Bills,
one observation from down here is that the wood appears to become very
brittle; shattering when the stick hits the ground. so maybe OK for
firewood, if you can process it into logs;  but probably not for the
traditional uses which need its elasticity; tool handles, hockey sticks and
other sports goods - not that there is much market for Ash for those uses
nowadays...

Indeed.  Lovely firewood, and there should be a plentiful supply of
“air-dried” logs soon enough to help with the particulate problem of yuppie
stoves and green wood.

And there’s no reason why you can’t get the wood chip pile hot enough to
deal with the other bits, before using the mulch where we start planting
Sycamore…

Regards,

Bill

As the Chalara fungus grows on leaf stalks I don't seen any reason why
the
timber shouldn't be utilised, even if it's just for firewood.
