Sourcing our wood
We buy our wood from both private and publicly owned woodlands. By sourcing from a large network of timber and forestry contractors, as well as woodland owners and managers, we avoid becoming reliant on any one single source of supply.
We also maintain timber contracts directly with the Forestry Commission, who own one third of the managed woodlands in the UK, and Forestry Commission Wales, who are responsible for managing the 38% of Welsh woodlands owned by the Welsh Government. Together this ensures that CCWF has enough wood-fuel year round for all our customers.
We have procedures in place so that we can specifically cross-reference every single delivery of timber against the woodland it has come from. This allows us to verify that all our wood has been felled legally and sustainably in accordance with a Forestry Commission felling license.
We produce all of our own wood chips and logs. CCWF does not purchase any wood chips or pellets from any third parties. This means that we can ensure the traceability, sustainability and quality control for every product we supply.
We do not use any ‘waste’ wood, anything that has been pre-used, or any wood that has been chemically treated in any way. This type of material is not suitable for conversion into high quality wood fuel because of contamination, inconsistency and potential damage that this may cause to the boiler.
