WOOD - Quality barn stored Firewood
Kingsbridge, Totnes & Ivybridge
We are a local family business, born and bred right here in the South Hams.
Employing local people, processing local timber and providing a service for the local community keeping everyone warm in winter.
Many people rely on us 100%, as a woodburner is often their only form of heating.
We in turn support the local economy by using other local businesses and services in the course of running our business and living our lives here.
Local grown timber - a sustainable and renewable fuel.
This is our advertising vehicle - you may have seen it around.
We park it at various locations throughout the South Hams to let local people know where they can buy good quality firewood locally.
It is rarely in one place more than 7 days and is strategically placed so as not to cause an obstruction or offend anybody and is in compliance with all relevant UK legislation.
On average we are at a location 3 or 4 times a year.
Before parking at locations with grass the area is cut and any litter picked so as not to inconvienience local contractors who may be responsible for the grass cutting.
We have found the local community to be very supportive of our business and the way it is operated.
LATEST NEWS *** The price we pay for timber has risen by 31.5 % since October 2018 - there have been 3 price rises ! and this is having a direct financial effect on Firewood producers – many we know have sadly decided to call it a day.
The price rises are due to the massive increase in forest trees going to Biomass Power Stations, which following government legislation are subsidised by you as a UK taxpayer and anyone who uses electricity. More of these power stations are currently being built and coming on line in 2019.
To get the harsh truth about how our woodlands and forests are being felled at a rate that is totally unsustainable to fuel these UK Biomass Power Stations for profit visit: www.biofuelwatch.org.uk
WE ALL NEED TO BE INFORMED ON WHAT IS BEING KEPT FROM US BY THE MEDIA !
Our aim at Woodleigh Wood is to try to minimise the effect the ongoing increasing timber prices has on the prices we charge for our firewood.
Firewood customers are being encouraged to increase their storage capacity, which will help them and us.
Additional storage allows customers to buy and store our lower priced Part – seasoned firewood in the Spring and make additional substantial cost savings by buying in bulk at Special Offer prices.
E.g. Buying 2m3 of Part - seasoned 50/50 on Special Offer is £ 50 less than buying Dry seasoned this Autumn - So it's definately worth extending or building a larger Firewood store.
1m3 of firewood takes up 2/3m3 when neatly stacked.
Lots of you are now building narrow wall storage against garage walls etc. - 20” wide that take 2 rows of 10” logs with sturdy shelves. These take minimum floor space and allow for storage of several m3 of Part – seasoned firewood to finish seasoning yourself.
A wall storage 3ft long x 5ft high x 20” wide will store 1m3 of 10” stacked firewood. So a 9ft long store will hold 3m3. All then store needs is a sloping roof and not face due South West to avoid rain driving in. Best outside but towards the front of a garage can work.
So please help us to help keep firewood prices down.
