Logwise is a family business that was set up by me, Gareth Taylor, I have been in the forestry industry since 1996 and started selling firewood from my log yard on our family farm in 2010. It is important to me that Logwise provides as environmentally sustainable products as it can. For this reason I resisted importing firewood and decided instead to invest in producing the best quality assured firewood I could, as sustainably as possible, here, in Yorkshire.
This principle has meant that Logwise has developed an environmentally friendly product range. For example: all our waste wood is used in biomass boilers to kiln dry our firewood; solar panels provide our electricity and through our partnership with the Woodland Trust we help offset our carbon footprint through the replanting of natural British trees.
Logwise Quality Assured is a mechanism we set-up that provides our customers with detailed information of our products, their origin, and an overview of the production time frame. In doing so, we aim to be transparent in the way we conduct our business. By demanding such detailed information from our suppliers we have formed close working relationships with estates, as well as woodland management and timber companies that share our values.
All of the timber we use for processing into firewood is sourced locally, therefore it uses less fuel to transport, and so has a much smaller carbon footprint than bringing it from Europe, which is where most of the UK’s kiln dried logs come from.
Being involved in the forestry industry since 1996, has established a rich knowledge of the firewood production process. Logwise has existed and grown in a competitive firewood market because of our unique philosophies whilst providing high standard products with deliverable service. This reliability, customer service and distinctive ethos has established Logwise as a significant actor in the British firewood market.
Together, we can continue to ensure that products sourced from well-managed woodland and processed in as ecological manner as possible are prominent deciding factors when choosing timber products.
