Firewood

​Sustainable firewood – for sale

To keep the district's woodland sustainable, we have to selectively remove a number of trees each year, this is called thinning  and is part of woodland management.  The trees are removed by our woodland management team to strict Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) standards.  

Once we have removed the trees, we dry the wood out for 6 months, making it safe and suitable for any log fires/fire pits in households. – Wood moisture levels are checked to ensure that they are below the required 20% before we sell our firewood

The locally sourced, sustainable firewood is available to purchase.

The firewood is available by the tipper load (500kg) for £149.94 (Inc. vat). Please email firewood@wakefield.gov.uk to request.
