How We Produce Firewood Logs


Log and Firewood Production on Champfleurie Estate


The process of our firewood log production from seedling to fireside, involves nearly quarter of a million pounds worth of equipment, a lot of hard work and a lot of patience.

It really starts with the planting, although the current generation will not see these trees turned into logs in their lifetime. Our present supply of timber consists of mature trees in trouble and wind blown material.

Firstly they are cut into rounds or 3 metre sections and left out in all weathers in wood stacks for at least 3 years. We then split the larger diameter trees with an attachment on our 7 ton digger called a cracker into sections that will go through our 18" diameter processor.

This material is then placed onto a hydraulic table which the feeds onto a conveyor that is stopped electronically at the exact position for the large harvester chain saw to cut into sections between 8" and 10" long. They in turn drop down into a chamber and a 25 ton hydraulic ram pushes them through an 8-way axe to produce the final log.

These logs then travel up a conveyor and into a cleaning drum which seperates the good logs from the waste material. They then fall out of the drum into vented log bags or airing boxes for the final storage stage.
