Fireplace' size logs £6 (and kindling £2.50) roughly ten inches long, packed full (see pics below). This net bag is the standard 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. Now selling September 2014 logs.
Collect from 'eggs', Rockshaw Road, RH1 3DB, three doors west of the huge motorway bridge. 07443 033294 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
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. We were recommending Scats but their bags were miserable when I last looked. 1st Dec: B&Q doing eastern European birch wood about £5.50 a bag.
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"
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!
