/ cheap firewood, Sheffield?
Try eBay - that usually where I look for local suppliers. I don't buy through eby, most people list their phone. I've paid 100 for a pickup full, about 2 yd^3
Try the farms on the way out to ringinglow. Two years ago we got a builders bag from the one on Hangram Lane for about £50 delivered. This year we went through a supplier reccomended by the place at Eccy woods, twice the cost for a bigger load
Actually could you let me know you get on - we might need more before the end of the winter
If you live near an industrial estate you can usually get free pallets.A lot of places leave them outside to be taken free so they dont have to pay for disposal. They burn fast but the blocks at the corners last longer.
Very dry and easy to chop up. No need to bother removing the nails just put a magnet in a plastic bag and pick the nails out of the ash easy peasy.
Granted they aren't as long burning as hardwood but they are free.
Also generally treated and sometimes painted, potentially dodgy fumes and shite can accumulate in your chimney. Not the best for your main fuel.
+1 for sheffield tree care. Worth checking that you are comparing like for like when assessing prices (often "seasoned" means different things to different people. Ask how long the logs have been down and split).
And Nick who runs the firm is a top bloke, none too shabby climber, employing other climbers. All good.
Chris, yes I'll let you know.
Uk pallets are not treated with chemicals anymore, they are heat treated, The only ones that are painted are deposit return ones which should not be left out for taking.
Unless you get some from india where they still treat with methyl bromide you will be fine. If heat treated they are likely to be marked HT by branding.
Good info on greenliving forum
