    Contract Wood Drying?

    Briquette: thanks - that is certainly an option in the long-run. I am fairly new to the wood industry so need to keep educating myself. Starting out, I'd have to ensure that I had supply of, and demand for, all the drying capacity which I have before deciding to do it on my own back. All things considered tho, that is a juicy margin and I'd much rather hang on to it myself! Mortimer: thanks - I'll PM you. Will

    Contract Wood Drying?

    Hi Busy Daddy - thanks; that is encouraging. Do you have any idea how they get paid (on the MW, or by %ge loss x tons) or how much they get? Thanks, Will

    Contract Wood Drying?

    Hello, A neighbouring farmer and I are considering putting in a plant which will produce heat and electricity. Some of the heat will probably be used at a nearby school, and we plan to use some on the farm for crop drying etc. I was wondering if anyone on here has experience with contract wood drying? Ideally someone would drop off a lorry load of green chips (ideal) or cordwood. We'd then take it down to 10-20% MC, and they'd come and pick it up a few days later. Does anyone know how much we might get £ / ton or even if there is demand for this kind of service? We are in the Bromyard area so the M5 is pretty close and there are some big woods nearby. Willk
