The Friends of Pontesford Hill sell split hardwood logs, sustainably sourced from the forest management activities on the Hill. The wood is processed by volunteers and all profits go to the maintenance and improvement of the Hill for all. One ‘load’ is just under 1 cubic metre. Moisture content of the wood at the moment (Autumn 2019) is about 40-50%, meaning that is being sold ‘part seasoned’ and not yet ready to burn.

Logs can be ordered in 9  inch or 11 inch lengths.

Price per load, delivered:                        £75

Cord wood (sold in 4 foot lengths):       £35

We can supply softwood (pine) if required.

The Environment Agency recommends that timber should be down to 20% moisture before being burned, to reduce soot and atmospheric pollution. Storing our firewood under cover for 6 months- 1 year should achieve this. See:
