How to prepare your timber for collection

In order to get maximum return for your timber we need to be able to get at it and load it efficiently. Articulated lorries do not travel well across fields even in the dry and lorry drivers can get very grumpy when they are asked to load what looks like a dropped box of matches.

Now, I’m not saying your timber has to be presented so well that you can hang wallpaper on it but we will need it to be stacked neatly in order for us to be able to load it. It also needs to be cut to the correct length. 3 meters is the ideal length but 4.5 meters is ok also. What we don’t want is a spread of lengths within the same stack, this makes it very awkward to load, reduces payload and is often dangerous when on the road.
