Logs for sale
We are a small firewood producer based between Selby and Doncaster. Unlike some producers we fell almost all of our own firewood rather than buying it in.
What kind of wood is it?
We sell two grades of firewood:
Hardwood (£75/ load) - a mixture of hardwoods such as Ash, Sycamore, Birch, Beech, Oak, Cherry and other species. Hardwood is often preferred for burning longer and hotter, depending on the species. This year many producers have had difficulty sourcing enough hardwood, which has led to price rises for round timber, but we currently have reasonable stock.
Budget Hardwood/ Softwood mix (£65/ load) - a mixture which may contain Poplar, Willow (technically hardwood species) and various softwoods e.g. Pine, Spruce. Larch etc. Any wood burns and gives heat if it is dry - these species are cheaper to buy and are a good choice for those on a budget. Softwood species can be resinous and may necessitate more frequent chimney sweeping.
Is it dry?
Our wood is fully seasoned and supplied ready to burn. We operate a "billet"system, popular on the Continent, where logs are split and stacked months before cutting to length. This ensures consistent drying as all the billets are a similar diameter. We aim for 15-20% moisture content.
Where does our wood come from?
Most of our firewood comes from undermanaged woods in Yorkshire which are thinned carefully by our team to promote tree growth and species diversity. The remainder comes from domestic and commercial tree work.
Is it sustainable?
We obtain felling licences where necessary from the Forestry Commission and produce management plans to ensure the work is carried out sustainably.
Demand for home grown timber is increasing for logs, biomass and saw timber. We often use small roundwood for logs, which is very often discarded in commercial forestry operations, in order to minimise waste. This is what has always been traditionally used for firewood, because it cannot be sawn into something more valuable. In each order we try to incorporate a good mix of round and split logs in a variety of species.
How big are the logs?
Our logs are suitable for log burners, open fires, multi-fuel burners and wood stoves. Our standard cutting size is 9" which is great for small to medium stoves, but we can cut any size to order to suit even the largest open fire.
Mixed offcuts are often available which are great for fire-pits, pizza ovens and chimineas.
How will the logs be delivered?
Our primary product is nets which are easy to handle and store. All net orders are carried and stacked in your store, so you can spend Saturday morning doing something less strenuous!
We can also supply larger loose loads in our tipper truck which holds 3.6 cubic metres of logs (starting from £300 - phone or email for a quote to your location).
We deliver logs in York, Selby, Bubwith, Goole, Howden, Womersley, Smeaton and surrounding areas, in a 5 tonne tipper or a 4 x 4 pickup and trailer. Let us know if your access restricts the type of vehicle used.
When will they be delivered?
We aim to deliver all standard orders within a week. We try where possible to fit in with your schedule, including Saturdays and weekday evenings, but if you are out you can leave instructions for stacking/ unloading.

Payment is by bank transfer (preferred), cash or cheque on delivery please.
Can I recycle the nets?
The bags can often be reused. If you return the bags in reuseable condition with your next order, we'll knock off £1 for every 10 bags. This avoids them going straight to landfill. Or order a larger loose load!
If you have firewood which you are unable to cut at home (perhaps some large pieces left over from a tree removal), we will be happy to cut it up into usable pieces when we deliver your log order, by prior arrangement.

We love to get nice feedback from our customers, here's what some of our customers said about us recently.
New: (5 out of 5 stars on Facebook ) "I had a wood burning stove installed last year and I bought my logs from Nick. My stove is only a very small one but the logs are cut small enough to fit. Nick piled up the logs in my shed. I like the bags as it makes it easy to store the logs and move them. I like that there is a mixture of wood in the bag - it is all well seasoned and burns really easily. I have tried to identify the wood - there is oak and birch and cherry but I'm not sure of the rest - I like to start my fire with birch and then use some oak when it gets going. I am very happy with the service and quality from Nick and have ordered from him again. Thank you." Mrs M. Benton, York, February 2016.
New: (5 out of 5 starts on Facebook) "Have used Nick for logs for a number of years. His service is the best, delivered, stacked in nets so easy to manage and keep check on. Logs always cut to size and well seasoned (no wet wood just dumped on drive way like some I know)". Mrs D. Osborne, York, February 2016.
"I have been acquiring logs off Nick now for a number of years and have always been very pleased with the service. He is prompt and easy to contact. The logs are always good quality too. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new supplier!" Mr A. Marsh, North Duffield, Selby. January 2016
"Nick offers and friendly and helpful service. The nets of logs make it so easy to use and he kindly stacks the logs in our log store saving us time and back breaking moving them. Come highly recommended. " Mrs L. Smith, Bubwith, Selby. January 2016.
