More details

Fireplace' size logs £6 (and kindling £2.50) roughly ten inches long, packed full (see pics below).
This net bag
is larger than the size you see for sale at petrol stations/Homebase selling
at c.£8 a bag. My bags weigh 10kg+ but you are not allowed to sell by weight because of the varying moisture content. My logs have always been stored under cover for at least a year. 
The logs are mostly Maple, Oak and Ash with some Beech / Hazel / Silver Birch / Laurel all from the garden, or local friends' gardens. I burn them myself. Absolutely no Willow/Leylandii/Poplar!

Collect from 'eggs', Rockshaw Road, RH1 3DB,  three doors west of the huge motorway bridge. 07443 033294 or email logs@mersthamfirewood.co.uk

Interested in sustainability? These logs are sustainable as they are from my back garden/neighbouring gardens and have not been transported across the world. If you follow the politics of biomass and understand big-corp blatant misuse of the term sustainable, then you'll appreciate this subtle point. Local is everything!

No bulk deals: I am just a householder, so I am not geared up for selling in bulk, so if you want more than half a dozen at a time, do give me some
notice so I can get them up from the log store. No discounts I'm afraid, it's putting them in net bags that takes the time and I can sell more than I can produce. Very few local UK people appear to be bothered to process local English woodland timber in net-bag size quantities.

Customers tell me they are disappointed with much of the wood on offer and that they struggle to keep their log burner going. I sell more than I can prepare so I am happy to pass on recommendations and try and guide customers to good local suppliers. 

Money back guarantee if you don't like them! But we are getting good feedback:
SW, Reigate: "Really happy with the logs burning nicely as I write"
GC, Purley: "I bought 12 bags of your logs about a month ago and they have been burning very well indeed"

This is a really good site explaining about burning properties of firewood

Why are net bags so expensive? Because it is virtually impossible to mechanise and even then it is only plantation-grown wood, not irregular woodland stuff. Why is firewood prices going up? Because the Government has decided to pay people to burn it through FITS/RHI and not considered where the wood will come from! Chipboard manufacturers are well hacked off! All this stuff brought the NI government down!
