Our aim at Woodleigh Wood is to try to minimise the effect the ongoing increasing timber prices has on the prices we charge you for our firewood.
We are encouraging our Firewood customers to increase their storage capacity, which will help you and us.
Additional storage allows you 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 a lot less than buying Dry seasoned in Autumn - So it's definately worth extending or building a larger Firewood store.
1m3 of firewood takes up 2/3 m3 when neatly stacked, so 2m3 takes 1 1/3 m3.
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.
The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 - made on the 9th October 2020 - Require that we supply the following statement that applies to wood that has - 'Not been seasoned ':
"This wood is not suitable for burning until it has been dried. You should not burn wood until it has a moisture content (mc) of 20% or less.
Wet wood contains moisture which creates smoke and harmful particulates when burnt. As well as being harmful to your health and the environment, this can damage your stove and chimney and is an inefficient way to heat your home. Dry it in a sunny, well-aired space for at least two years, keeping rain off in the winter.
Radial cracks and bark that comes off easily suggests wood that is ready for burning. Test the wood when you think it is ready for burning, ideally with a moisture meter. First calibrate the meter and then measure a freshly split surface to get the best reading. "
We sell 'Part seasoned firewood' that will of course not take 2 years to season. If you follow our guidance on storage it will finish seasoning very quickly during the Summer months - you just need to have forward planning.
The legislation coming into force on Firewood will apply to us from
MAY 2022 and will still allow you to buy 2m3 of our Part - seasoned Firewood to finish drying in your own woodstore.
From MAY 2022 WE WILL BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TO SELL OUR

which GENERALLY IS 20 - 25 % MC that all our customers have been
buying for years
So please help us to keep firewood prices down - Buy Part - seasoned Firewood now, store more and save money.
EVEN THOUGH THE PRICE WE PAY FOR TIMBER HAS RISEN AGAIN, AT THIS TIME OF HARDSHIP FOR ALL OUR LOYAL CUSTOMER'S ON DRY SEASONED FIREWOOD THERE WILL BE :
