Does anyone have any preferences as to local firewood suppliers ?

I am looking for a large-ish load of well-seasoned hardwood preferably oak or ash to see us through the winter.

Beware!!! much of the “seasoned” wood sold around here was growing quite healthily the day before Wink

I'm afraid the only way is to cut it yourself last year.

But now is a good time to lay some in for next year, and I am willing to contribute my chainsaw to lighten the load Cool

Thanks Scott,

That's a great offer. I do have a small chainsaw myself, but just for now I wanted to buy a load for use in the coming weeks.

Mind you it's hardly cold enough for fires yet - will Autumn ever arrive ?

Someone told me that the log man Steve uses is good, so I will see what I can find out.

I actually meant a couple of us could find some wood and cut it down this year. I might even have some up the back. Certainly got a lot of undergrowth to clear...... Confused

Yep, I'd be up for that.
We can discuss next week perhaps ?

Hi Luke,

Welcome to the Uplyme Debate and thanks for the offer of pallets for burning. I was really looking for hardwoord logs that burn slowly with a lot of heat. In the end I got some from the guy that supplies Steve at the pub. Very good they were too.

Geoff.

My family sells our own dry, split, seasoned hardwood for very reasonable prices. It's a drive-in system and you fill the bags yourself, giving you the freedom to choose the size you need for your particular fire/wood-burning stove. We are at Lane End Farm, on Springhead Road, just up from the crossroads with Rhode Lane and Pound Lane. And we also sell Christmas trees at incredible value, including some that don't drop needles - the ideal compromise between having a real tree for authenticity and a fake one for convenience!
