  1. Hi everyone I remember following few posts on this topic back when I first joined this chat. I'm hoping to speak to people who actively plant up new Woodlands on their land. I'd be wanting it for a future crop for our firewood business. So can someone help me shed light on the practicality if doing this. I.e, what tree crop to plant? Thinking of birch? Cost of saplings? Recommended nurseries to look at fir getting the saplings? Realistic time of growth for your chosen trees, time how long till harvest? How much land do you think would need to be planted (minimum)to make it viable? Finally I truly believe we should all be actively pushing for replanting of trees. Any help would be most appreciated
  2. We are based in broxbourne area and have a processor if you still need this? I can also do days chainsawing logs into rings ready for splitting. 07759-245-611 Cheers
  3. Ah good, for a moment I was imagining a couple of blokes at each end lifting them on by hand!
  4. Ah ok, what's that, 7 bags an hour, seems very good going, how was ya loading them onto the processor
  5. 175 bags for that pile, in 4 short ish days seems good going! How many hours in total do you reckon you did? And was it for another firewood merchant or for someone for private use?
  6. I'm Interested in ibc or any suitable cage for storing logs in, we are in Hertfordshire and would be lookingto get a large number of them. Cheers

  9. We've had a bit of snow where we are near London, sales have been consistently very high all season so far and we had alot of customers come in over the weekend panic buying logs most of them new as everywhere else sold out, quite a few of them came some distance to get to us!
  10. Ah right Ok, do you not dry all year round and store the dry stock undercover???
  11. What is your force drying? Also i always believe it' worth trying to keep customers suppied than letting work go as they may find another supplier and not use you again
  12. What is force drying? I always believe it'
