Unseasoned Logs for Sale!

UNSEASONED LOGS FOR SALE 

Please note that our current supply of logs are not suitable for immediate burning and need to be seasoned before use.

We have a good supply of logs in stock which are excellent for creating a wonderful natural home for the wildlife in your garden.  

Prices start from £40 for a car boot or boot of a hatchback, up to £60 for the full boot of an estate.  If you want a larger load, or part load, do come and see us in the Ranger's Office

Many people are also asking us if we can cut our un-split logs into smaller rounds to make an unusual base for table decorations, particularly for weddings, and some the bigger ones for actual tables!  As long as we have a few weeks notice, this is a service we can also now offer for a small charge in addition to the cost of the logs.

We are open from 9am to 5pm, 7 days a week but we may close at lunchtimes on weekends. 

Payment can be made by cash or cheque - unfortunately we don't yet have credit/debit card facilities.

*Please note that the London Boroughs of Merton and Wandsworth, and parts of the Royal Borough of Kingston, are designated a Smokeless Zone and burning wood in these areas can be an offence under the Clean Air Act 1993.

The majority of the wood we sell is donated by local tree surgeons.  A small amount will come  from the Commons if we are carrying out tree safety work and the wood cannot be left in situ. All the money raised in log sales is used to support the protection and management of the Commons.

Wood Burning Stoves - Defra Approval

If you are resident in a Smokeless Zone, you should only burn wood in a DEFRA approved wood burning appliance. The stove can either be a dedicated wood burning stove or a multi fuel stove (which can also burn smokeless coal and other approved fuels).

Drying Wood

To reduce pollution even further,  it is recommended that you stack your wood in rows in a dry location where there is good air can circulation. It normally take between six to nine months for your wood to be seasoned.

Firewood Ash

Every time you light a fire, you create a certain amount of ash. Don’t throw it away, add it to your compost, it is naturally alkaline and contains calcium. Wood ash also makes a great repellent for snails and slugs. So you don’t contaminate your soil, we suggest you cut an old piece of garden hose or pipe in half lengthways, lay it around the edge of a raised bed, then fill with ash.
