Logs and Firewood

Logs

We no longer sell firewood.

The new legislation for the supply of logs for firewood guarantees that all firewood is properly seasoned and has the right level of moisture content at the point of sale. These new rules will help with the environment and are to be applauded.

Practically, the new legislation would have made no difference to us because we have always only sold naturally well seasoned firewood of less that 20% moisture content. However, the costs associated with joining the compulsory scheme makes the firewood part of our business financially unsustainable and we are closing it down.

We thank our relatively small customer base for the business over the years but to continue to supply would mean increasing the prices to an unacceptable level or our business running at a loss. Neither of which is desirable.
