About Winford Woodchip

There are a lot of things to look forward to in winter, but the price of fuel probably isn’t one of them. And for those of us who like to choose environmentally friendly options when we can, cost can be a real concern. One local business, Winford Woodchip, has managed to keep prices down by reusing unwanted timber.

The project started five years ago, when an independent tree surgeon began passing on logs to friends and family. Things are more organised now – the timber is seasoned, and customers can choose between softwood and hardwood – but the whole set up is still refreshingly straightforward. And the Great British weather means that Winford Woodchip now supplies logs to families and business almost the whole year round.
