Hardwood logs.

We supply hardwood logs to clients from our bases in south and central Scotland, our logs are extremely well seasoned, we start by splitting the larger stems into billets using our Posch 30Ton  log splitter, we then stack these and leave them for up to 2 years to season, they are then converted into split logs using our Posch Firewood Processor. The split logs are then moved indoors to further season down further. Because we only use local timber produced from our own tree surgery operations our timber is totally sustainable, unlike the imported so called “kiln dried” timber that has flooded the market in recent years. Felling virgin forest and then shipping it from Eastern Europe all the way to the UK is not good for the environment and completely defeats the purpose of burning wood as a carbon neutral fuel in the first place.

Our logs come BSL Certified and are suitable for those claiming RHI payments, we can supply them in different lengths to order, our standard length is about 9 inches, (22cm). We supply our logs loose by the cubic meter, a cubic meter is 1000 litres, a builders bag is about 600 litres. So a builders bag of our logs costs from £42.

Prices are as follows:

2 cubic meters  £160
3 cubic meters £220
6 cubic meters  £420

Delivery is free within 30km of one of our bases.

Firewood Production Service

We can come to your premises with our Valtra tractor and Posch Firewood Processor, as well as our Posch 30 ton log splitter to convert your own timber into firewood. Customers who have used our Woodland Management Service have found this to be a useful way of making their woodland pay. We can split logs to various lengths and the conveyor on the machine can load them directly into trailers for easy handling. Timber of all dimensions can be handled, from 4″ logs that simply require cross cutting through to large diameter round wood of over a meter. We split the larger rounds into billets which can then be stacked for seasoning or put straight through the processor.

Because our Valtra has a front linkage and anticlockwise front PTO we can put either machine on either end of the tractor, running both machines at 1000 speed we can operate the tractor at low revs and save fuel. This efficiency means that we can produce firewood from as little as £15 per cubic meter. Given that prices per cubic meter (seasoned) vary from £60 to £120 this makes us very cost effective. Production rates will vary according to the diameter of timber being processed and the ease of handling etc.
