Welcome to 

WOODLEIGH WOOD

Quality  -  ' Naturally air dried '  barn stored Firewood 

Kingsbridge,   Totnes   &   Ivybridge

OIL, GAS and ELECTRICITY prices are at an all time high, so now is the time to look at the options.

 

If you care about the Environment you have a choice:

A   -   Help protect the planet for your children and buy our local Devon                grown  ' Naturally air dried '  Firewood.     

  

   -  Or

 

B   -  Buy Kiln dried firewood that has been forced dried, often using

          fossil fuels creating massive particulate emissions.

          Kiln dried firewood may have travelled thousands of miles in gas                guzzling lorries, again producing huge diesel emissions, all the                    way from Russia,  Lithuania or other parts of Eastern Europe 

 

 

Our  locally grown Quality  -  ' Naturally air dried '  Firewood, which we sell to hundreds of loyal customers around the South Hams is all you need !

 

 

Firewood is tipped loose off our tipper vehicle for you to move and store away. This avoids the use of any packaging.

Please ensure vehicles etc.  are clear  -  all ready for your delivery. 

 

Orders can be paid for via Online or telephone banking or COD (cash on delivery) 

 

 

The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020

 

You will all be aware of the headlines in the news and media about changes to the Law on selling firewood, which was phased in, affecting larger Firewood producers, from May 2021 and now includes all producers from 1st May this year - 2022.

 

Basically there are 3 classifications of firewood:

 

1:         READY TO BURN

 

2:         DRY SEASONED

 

3:         PART SEASONED

 

 

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU BUY FIREWOOD TO BURN ON A WOODBURNER OR OPEN FIRE.

 

The Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020

 

A -       From the 1st May 2022 the Regulations apply to every Firewood retailer in England no

            matter how much or how little Firewood they sell.

 

 

B -       READY TO BURN.  You can only legally supply or sell wood fuel in volumes of less than 2 cubic metres if it is certified as ‘Ready to Burn’. This confirms it has a moisture content (MC) of 20% or less.  

 

Woodleigh Wood have already been Audited and Certified to supply ‘Ready to Burn’,          which we chose to do in September 2020 and as such, we are required to have ongoing annual Audits and have a unique Certification No. which is listed on the ‘Woodsure’ website.

 

 

C -       If you order 1m3 of Firewood from any source, it legally has to be certified as ‘Ready to Burn’.

 

 

D -       DRY SEASONED. Wood fuel sales of Dry Seasoned  of 2 cubic metres or more does not need to be Certified. Drying instructions stated in the Regulations are required to be provided even if the wood is below 20% moisture content.

 

 

E -       PART SEASONED. Wood fuel sales of Part-Seasoned  of 2 cubic metres or more does not need to be Certified. Drying instructions stated in the Regulations are required to be provided.

 

 

SUMMARY.

 

Whenever possible we encourage all our customers to continue to buy Part-Seasoned and

 

Dry Seasoned firewood from us in quantities of 2m3 and above, just like they have for

 

many years. These are the 2 best value for money types of firewood you can buy.

 

‘Ready to burn’ firewood will be available from us for those who can’t possibly store more

 

than 1m3  but will be more expensive than Dry Seasoned, as we naturally air dry it and it

 

has to be stored for longer just to lose a few % MC more than our dry seasoned.

 

Our Dry seasoned firewood generally has a MC of 17 – 24%.

 

 

 

I can see no advantage whatsoever in buying the more expensive ‘Ready to burn’ firewood.

 

Nearly all ‘Ready to burn’ you see offered for sale has been force dried in kilns using fossil

 

fuels, woodfuel or has been imported from Russia, Latvia or Eastern Europe and

 

transported in huge gas guzzling lorries, producing toxic carbon monoxide emissions

 

harmful to humans and the planet. Even UK produced Kiln Dried firewood is not a local

 

product and will have travelled long distances in lorries.

 

This can never be the right thing to be considering buying – say no to Kiln Dried firewood !

 

 

Part Seasoned firewood is the best value firewood available.

 

All our timber comes from FSC Certified Woodlands and is from local forestry and

 

woodland thinnings, where poorer trees are removed to allow trees for timber to thrive.

 

 

A 2m3 delivery of our perfect split firewood when stacked neatly only takes up 1 1/3 m3.

 

 

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/ early summer and make substantial cost savings by buying in bulk at our Special Offer prices.

 

If stored correctly following our guidance on the Website, Firewood bought now will be ready by Autumn.

 

100’s of our customers have been doing this for many years and return to order again every Spring.

 

Firewood is delivered tipped loose off a tipper truck for you to move in a tub trug or wheelbarrow and store away.

 

Wheelbarrows and Tub Trugs are available locally from Martin Pears Engineering near Halwell.

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. "

Note: Moisture meters available measure on a 'Dry basis' so if you test a log and the reading is 25%, this means that the log is at 20%.

 

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   

 

DRY SEASONED FIREWOOD IN DELIVERY QUANTITIES OF 2m3 -

 

which GENERALLY IS 17 - 25 % MC that all our customers have been

 

buying for years.

 

We are required to tell you to read the same statement above from the Regulations in relation to dry seasoned firewood as well.

 

The idea of printing off a hard paper copy of the statement above and giving it to every customer each and every time we deliver part or dry seasoned firewood, kind of defeats the object of caring for the planet.

We will have some copies as required in the vehicle which will be offered to you and for those who do not have access to our Website.

 

 

So please help us to keep firewood prices down - Buy Part - seasoned Firewood now in quanties of 2m3 and above, increase the size of your storage, store more and save money.

Woodleigh Wood - Advertising vehicle

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.
