As the Winter Approaches…

We always have firewood available for sale; please call 01395 232854 for current prices and availability (prices normally increase every September). We sell split, seasoned logs – these are converted from lengths of timber that have been left in the yard for a period before being cut and split into logs and stacked under cover to season further. Our logs are traditional air-dried logs and our prices reflect that. We cannot guarantee the moisture content, but the logs that we sell are exactly the same as the logs our managing director uses as the sole heating in his house. We often run out of fully seasoned logs in long, cold winters, so if you can, get your logs delivered in the summer before the winter price increase, when we will have large stocks available.

Pricing of log sales and the quality of logs sold can vary dramatically between firewood merchants. There is currently no standardised measure or quality standard used across the industry and thus the rule is caveat emptor. Our seasoned logs are sold by the approximate cubic metre delivered and will comprise good quality logs, mainly hardwood but generally including some softwoods. All the timber comes from our tree surgery operations and thus the species mix tends to be wide and varied. We do attempt to exclude all the lower quality timber (Pine, Horse Chestnut, Willow etc) from our firewood stack. Logs are slightly cheaper if collected from our yard and we will also sell rings or lengths of timber for you to convert yourself if you wish. If you have any queries regarding our log sales then please call our Woodbury Office or email us by visiting our contact page.
