So i have a fairly big Japanese cedar that iam looking at getting removed as the leaves tend to block the drains often. Iam wondering if there is any point in trying to sell the wood as firewood or should i just let the Arborist take care of it?

Btw..any recommendation Arborists who are not to expensive :) Tree fellers quoted me an arm and a leg

Cedar makes great firewood and especially kindling, its also quite lightweight. With winter coming up and some drying time over summer you should be able to flick off and offset some of your aborist costs. You'd need a trailer load to make it worthwhile for someone.

Iam in Mt Wellington, Auckland and the tree is about 8-10 meters so trailer load would not be a problem :)

We had a number of large trees on our property, we checked with the local council to ensure it is ok to remove them then just hired a Tree Service company to remove them and to grind the stumps. Although expensive it was worth it was they did it in a day and left the place very tidy.

Ive used him many times for tree removal, tree pruning, tree tidy up and stump removal. Good prices and does an excellent job.

Just make sure it's not a protected tree on your Lim. Otherwise you will go to jail.

The Arborist has checked and i have it in writing from him that the tree is not protected and does not need council approval. If iam MIA then assume iam in jail :)

Good luck with this in Auckland.  They're all "do as I say not as I do" .  Will cost a $mil in resource consents  and in the end they'll say no.   Did you see the family on Fair Go  last year who wanted to remove a tree because the pine cones kept falling off and going thru their house  roof.  The council said "Over our dead body will you be able to remove this tree"
