Where to buy

Recommended Posts

Hi all, first post here. Would anyone be able to shed any light on the stacks of logs by forests, and if it's possible to purchase a load?

Long story short we rely on logs for heating at home. I can chop them up and split them no problem, just thinking it may be cheaper to buy them un-chopped. Also, I've been asked a few times where I get my logs from, so I think there may be a few quid to be made. Devon, near Honiton

I'm no authority on the subject, but the stacks are probably awaiting collection. Someone may have bought the standing timber, felled and processed the trees, and already have sold the lot before it was even felled for use as firewood, wood pulp, biofuel, fencing etc.

You'd be better off starting a thread asking to buy timber and striking a deal with some of the forestry guys on here. I can imagine it's all sold in bulk though, so be prepared for a big outlay... Then again I could be completely off the mark!! Someone should be along soon to correct me :)

Thank you for the replies. I will have a look at getting in touch with some hauliers. There's a local farm who has a massive amount, looks like for biomass I think though. Might see where he got his
