Shropshire RCC and Wyre Community Land Trust present...Firewood for Local Communities- A Pilot Project.

As part of your Fuel Buying Scheme membership you will soon be able to access bulk prices for firewood in addition to cheaper oil.

The Firewood for local communities project, aims to supply hardwood firewood to communities and individuals on a bulk basis to support the sustainable management of ancient woodlands in the Wyre Forest.

Initially this offer will only be open to members in receipt of this email who live within a defined area, however, if successful the aim is to roll this out to all our members across Shropshire.

Please help us by competing this short survey (less than 2 minutes!) https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/5XHR57S and registering your interest. 

You will find more information about the product below.

The Logs

The logs to be supplied are air dried for a season or more so that the moisture content is reduced to below 25% and sold in cubic metres.

There are several ways we can supply logs…


Bulk bags (like builders bags) are specially designed for logs and have

a wide mesh that lets airflow through the logs and helps them dry.

We have several sizes of log bags, 0.5 m3, 0.75m3 and 1.0m3.


We supply logs in purpose made log stores. These are good for

people with limited storage space or who need easy access to logs.

These are delivered on pallet trucks which mean they can be

placed anywhere flat next to the house. They look attractive and

when empty we can just bring another full one. The first time the

customer picks up a log is to take it to their log burner. There

would normally be a deposit for the log store, but potentially there

could be a monthly subscription charge to spread the cost.


The most simple way to deliver loose logs is by trailer

and simply tip and leave them. These would be in cubic metre loads or larger.



It is possible to supply unprocessed green timber in bulk. This

would normally be 1.2 metres long branch wood which would need

cutting, splitting and seasoning. It is a cheap way to buy firewood,

but would ideally need the logs to be seasoned for a season before


bulk price*

Log Bags (1m3)           £70

Log Store System        £80

Loose Logs                   £60
