    Value Softwood Cord

    We sold a few cubic metres of softwood to regular customers for £70 a cubic metre when we didn't have any softwood left at the end of the winter. If your thinking of selling to firewood merchants around south Wales by the builders bag your probably looking at £15/20 max a bag delivered. I've just bought a few loads of softwood cord for kindling at £35 a ton and he only got 21 ton on as it was so dry. I'm only in Pontypool and might be interested in it for £35 a ton delivered to put in the biomass boilers if you can't shift it

    Domestic biomass heating.

    Depends on the size of your house but a big woodburner with back boiler can work well. We have a lot of customers that run a 15-25kw stove with backboiler and it runs their heating and hot water no problem

    Wholesale Kiln Dried Hardwood Ash in Net Bags

    I've bought a few nets off Glossop at the end of this winter to keep us ticking over and they've been top quality nets! Couldn't recomend them enough [emoji106]

    Your own biomass plant

    50% of the RHI would be fine [emoji6][emoji23] The only problem you might have now is that the domestic RHI has stopped I think! Worth a try though

    Imported firewood

    Why?! We ship every other timber product so why not firewood? We don't have enough hardwood to support the UK market so it's got to come from somewhere. I also sell a lot of lanscaping timber in the summer months and all the main sawmills are struggling to get timber in to process into landscaping timber. One big supplier in south Wales has 2 big mills and don't have a length of round timber in at the moment. BSW one of the largest timber companies in the UK have also just shut one of its big sawmills because they couldn't get enough timber in to keep it running. If you think a little island like ours with very little planting over the last 30 years can be self sufficient in timber you are also mad

    Your own biomass plant

    That's odd as I have 3 domestic customers with 65kw boilers and 1 with 80kw.

    Your own biomass plant

    Whoever told you it was too big for the RHI was lying [emoji848] Domestic would have run for 7 years and if it's a big net very well insulated house you would have got a good chunk on domestic RHI!

    Any good alternatives to CW flamers?

    We sell to retail customers about 1000 boxes a year at £5 each if they are buying them with a cubic metre. Just ask with every order if they would like kindling and firelighters and a lot of people say yes, kindling £4 each or 3 for £10. 99% of the time they go for 3. On the website we put on the description of the cubic metre loads "we recommend 3 nets of kindling and 1 box of firelighters per cubic metre" and most people when ordering online also order them both.
