Ash Trees Wanted for Hurley Stick Making I am looking for straight maiden-stem ash, ranging from 20cm - 45 cm in diameter - measured above ground level at 1.3 meters high. The ash must have a minimum of three prominent curved roots per tree. Suitable ash will be free from defects for (i.e. no knots, brown heart or butt rot). We are looking for fast-growing ash with smooth bark, I have no market for big old gnarly ash with deep fissured bark. Ideally we need 130 - 170 butts per lorry load.

I am paying top price per m3 for good quality ash, hurley ash sales is worth 5 times the price of the firewood market. References available from a host of forestry figures throughout the UK. Contact me at anytime, thank you. County Tipperary, Ireland
