Does this mean I can only harvest timber at night?

No. Just because it called moon phase harvesting it doesn't mean that you should only harvest during the night.

Essential are the 3 days leading up to new moon between autumn equinox and winter solstice however we would strongly advise that one stops cutting at least 10 to 15 minutes prior to the proscribed new moon time just to be safe.

If you are unsure about the correct time please refer to our website as we normally publish the accurate dates of felling.

The lamp stands are from locally moon phase harvested alien timber. Recycled car parts are used as bases. Various paper shades & low energy LED light bulbs provide good lighting and create a beautiful atmosphere.
