    We do the same as @Sheal and have given ours a permanent gravel home area, out of view.

      It is indeed. Do you have a local drum supplier or a company nearby that has product delivered in drums ?

      Our local facebook selling page sometimes has burning drums for sale much cheaper than the one on Amazon

        Well if you have 2 trees to burn, assume you are going to be chopping them up to fit into your incinerators anyways, wouldn't it be just as easy to split them into logs suitable for the indoor stove burners or for making garden wood piles for wildlife etc...

        Something I'm sure has crossed your mind, but surely its your landlords job /expense to deal with tree felling and removal , if they were there before you. or are you trying to avoid any hassle with them ?

            That is actually quite similar to our chimnea @Scrungee - maybe I should just use that and make an early start on it, burn all day.

            I don't really have the space to have them stacked for wildlife I'm afraid (I do have some stuff around the back of some of the shrubs which came from a tree that came down years ago), and we don't have any form of indoor burner (not even a gas fire), and neither do any of the neighbours as far as I know (highly unlikely as we are in a smokeless zone with the exception of burning garden rubbish and barbecues etc).

            Re the landlord, our agreement is that we are responsible for most things other than the really big stuff (boilers, roofs etc), but the upside of that is that we can pretty much do as we please within reason. We are allowed to plant the garden as we wish and treat the place as it was our own; part of that for us is that we try and be good tenants too, keeping the house and garden in good order. If we rang them, they almost certainly would deal with it, but that would see them incurring the same costs as I would if I got a skip etc (and more for labour) and I would have to take a day or so off work. I would rather just sort it out and it is done.

            Now you mention it a mate of mine has just moved into a new house and he has taken down an old shed.
            A few weeks ago he had one of those chiminea things delivered, when I asked him what he wanted that for at this time of the year, he said, to get rid of the shed:biggrin:.
            So if you are prepared to cut stuff up small enough I guess it is an option.

              Chimera.

              As our local tip now charges £60 to dispose of a small shed, my £5.82 chimnea is now an even bigger bargain.
