Log Goblins

Recommended Posts

or you could find some reliable log merchant near you to take your wood regular and might pay you as well. There by not encouraging the log fairy's and giving everyone a living.

Would a log merchant take conny,willow, horse chestnut etc?

 

Thats why I operate a free drop off point at the farm. Any softwood is processed for our own use and all the hardwood is dried below 20% MC and sold at 100 m3. Only problem with the wetter woods is having the right equipment to dry it without going mouldy and traditional solar kilns are ideal for this.

People who take rubbish wood are unlikely to pay for good stuff I would have thought.

 

Exactly that. I know things are different regionally and that in some area`s any wood is log wood but around here there is no market what so ever for this stuff. We process everything,all cord goes for chip, any hardwood goes to the log boys and chip goes to the chip dump. Conifer rings etc would cost me money and time to dispose of so this method suits me.

 

Lots of eternally grateful old folk have taken car loads away .This guy below is living in a house with loads of open fires, he has had at least six transit loads like this and its the difference between him being warm this winter or living in a cold house. He would not be a buyer of logs, ever.

Been on forestry/landscape opps for the last few months so the Goblins are going to be hungry. Tipped off at 5pm. One has pulled up in less than a minute , I reckon two hours to clear if they are feeling energetic :)
