Gathering Winter Fuel

Postby Compo » Thu Dec 09, 2010 5:23 pm

I tried Aspen because the team at PSM recommended it for the sake of the equipment. Still using it because it's so much cleaner - none of that thick head and sore throat business that you get with using 2-stroke all day. If you're cutting logs you're making a lot of cuts in quick succession and not moving around. If wood is the fuel of the future (and it is) because it benefits the environment then surely using Aspen is the same kind of thinking. Be interested in what others think. How about government grants for us 'alternative energy suppliers'? Trees beat turbines every time.

I've only ever used Aspen and i find it so convenient that i don't think i'll bother with anything else. Agree with you about the logs too. Not only for the reasons you say but you can't beat settling down in front of the fire after a hard days work out in the cold.

You're not wrong girl. No problem getting rid of the ashes either. Trouble is folk don't realise the work that goes into turning a tree into grate-sized pieces that are dry enough to burn well. And they don't seem to understand about storing logs. Perhaps we should produce a leaflet. Hey, maybe PSM could get into the log store and associated products line. All we need is a retail outlet for all PSM clients who produce firewood. Actually I know a bloke. . . . . . :mrgreen:

It's coming up to that time of year again already! Looks like folk are expecting a cold winter judging by the number of logs we've already sold.

Perhaps you're training your customers properly - get the wood in early! I've already sold truck loads of the stuff. The demand is mushrooming and the supply is finite so the price has to increase. We have our own woodland so we can coppice/pollard indefinitely. There's a long lead in time but once you're harvesting it's a regular income. Looking for a piece of land to store, process and sell from locally but can't compete with the pony paddock crowd. Axeman

We have just started selling netted logs from a quality local supplier. Been looking at prices and they have increased a huge amount from last year.
It's our service that sets the standard
