World's biggest wood yard?

Recommended Posts

 
How many cubic meters of firewood do you estimate?

None. It’s all arbwaste.
It’ll probably all get chipped.
And no, there are many yards much much bigger, with actual stacks of wood, not just some random lumps tipped off.

There’s one in st nazaire by the big bridge over the Loire.
You will be able to see it on google earth if it’s still there.
It’s about several hundred times bigger than the one in the video.
Looks like it’s closed down

As above, it looks like a tip site, not a woodyard. Certainly not owned by someone who knows what they are doing. 

I'm sure there are lumber yards way bigger than this is the dozens, I used the term wood yard which is common here to describe a firewood lot. Its not a tip site in a sense that its for others to come and drop off, it is this company's own tip site for no purpose except for removing wood from sites ehre they cut the trees and having it available to "woodys" to come by and take away firewood for themselves.  If they have lumber for milling still on site, that wood is buried and as of recent, definitely not set up for incoming and outgoing trunks. They have a log burner in their shop so they split some for use in it.
