Yes selling ash into the Hurley market is certainly worth considering.
Within all of my ash thinnings I'm keeping an eye out for butts which would
be desirable.
This is part of a silvicultural operation and not pillaging woodlands to
make a quick ££. They only want the bottom 1.3m with a dbh between 20cm to
55cm, with the rest going into the firewood market. Any stumps with
defects, holes or staining will be rejected. (Chalara stains the stems
similar to elm with DED)
Prices are based on m3 and estimated whilst carrying out the marking of the
woodland.
Let the firewood contractor go through first and leave all Hurley butts at
1.3m high. The buyers will then usually cut these themselves as it's quite
specialised in technique.
If anyone needs more information please email me directly and I can put you
in touch with buyers.

Also with brexit looming, there is a risk that import duty to The Republic
of Ireland will make this market unviable, so consider sooner rather than
later.

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

the
timber shouldn't be utilised, even if it's just for firewood.
