Default Had to fell a tree or two

We applied for planning permission to cut back some trees, Most of the trees we have have PTO's. During the council visit we mentioned two trees that were not in good health, just in case we had to take the down in years to come. We were told to take them down.

Here are a couple of pictures of the felled trunk of one of them.
Not much wood for burning

Cut them into 6" - 12" slices, put a base on them and sell them as decorative plant holders.

will use the wood as fire wood. Our central heating is far to expensive to run and does not get hot, warm - fairly warm at best. The log burner can get the water to the same temperature but I need to investigate the dodgy plumbing.
