Seasoned hardwood logs
All our wood is produced from our woodland in St Dogmaels. Our hardwood is a mixture of ash, cherry, oak, sweet chestnut and sycamore. Once felled, the lengths are split and naturally dried to a water content of 25% or less before being cut into firewood.
We can cut back existing and overgrown coups and we can also fell small areas of small to medium size plantation planting (up to approximately 35 years) to establish new coppice. We only cut and fell October to March.
We can cut felled wood into lengths and stack and manage "lop and top" through snedding into either dead hedging or biodiversity piles.
We are a small team that uses traditional woodland management tools whenever possible. We use axe and bow saw for felling and other traditional tools such as slashers for scrub/bramble clearing. Occasionally, we use a re-chargeable chainsaw to cross-cut felled lengths but usually we would use a two-man saw for this purpose.
If you have an area of woodland which you think might benefit from coppicing, please contact us for a chat. We will happily visit your woodland with you to discuss your requirements.
