WOODLEIGH WOOD is a local family business, which has grown to be one of the largest specialist firewood suppliers in the South Hams.
The original business was established in 1978 and started out as a mixed Farm prodominantly cattle and sheep with some timber production.
Ideally located in the beautifull Devon countryside near Woodleigh on the families small Country Estate with supporting farmland and forest that surrounds the gardens and grounds of the country house.
Over the years the demand for quality firewood has grown, driven by rising fossil fuel prices, which led us to diversify into Forestry and form the additional business - Woodleigh Wood. Farming and Forestry compliment each other very well in such a rural location.
All the timber we process into logs is grown within the South Hams, some from local sustainable managed forests and our own forest management where we use mainly the thinnings, where selected trees are removed for the benefit of other retained trees.
We process all our timber on the property, which is central to our delivery areas and our customers.
Large diameter timber is sold as sawlogs and goes straight to local sawmills and the timber which is not suitable for any other purpose is used for Firewood.
Shortly after the forestry timber is felled, it is processed almost immediately using modern efficient machinery. Once in log form, the timber starts the process of air drying in specialised ventilated storage facilities, which attract natural solar gain to improve their drying efficiency and turn unseasoned wood into a quality fuelwood with a low moisture content ready to burn.
One of the main benefits of burning woodfuel as a source of energy to heat your home is that supply is 100% sustainable, as we can grow trees indefinately.
In the last 3 years we have planted in excess of 8,000 trees on our own land, the majority of which are native species.
Our business prides itself on supplying premium quality Firewood and excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service to our valued customers.
