All timber on Barwhillanty Estate is FSC certified and is therefore managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable fashion. We fell approximately 15000 tons of timber per annum for processing into building material etc. at local saw mills. We are also a local woodfuel provider and are ambassadors for its use as a renewable and economic alternative to fossil fuels.
Trees take time to grow, especially hardwoods. With all our Wood Fuel coming from estate timber we need to ensure we are environmentally sustainable and that our customers have a guaranteed supply throughout the year. To achieve this we ask that all our customers become “Barwhillanty WoodFuel Members”. Once signed up as a member you can also buy and place orders at any time of day on our website. Click on the link above to become a member.
We sell hardwood and softwood. Softwood is often avoided as firewood but if the right species is selected and dried properly it can also be a great fuel source. Less heat is generated per kilo compared to hardwoods but this is why it costs less. Softwood should not be used in open fires as it is prone to spit. It is suitable for wood stoves or biomass boilers.
We don’t currently sell kiln dried logs or kindling but should you be interested please get in touch.
Quality Assured: Timber will not leave our storage facility unless it is below 30% moisture content i.e. suitable for burning. We advise storing wood in your house for a few days prior to burning to reduce this moisture content further to achieve a better heating efficiency.
