Try going to the Forestry Commission web site. If you can't find the information there is a page with your local office details on it so you can contact them direct.

We used to have a thinning license years ago, but the 1987 hurricane put paid to that round here.

I was told the license form the Forestry people was no longer available. Is there any way of checking as we have loads here we could go and 'tidy'.


I will try and remember to ask when I next see the friend. They might not be Forestry Commission owned woods and I know her brother in law is a timber merchant.

The cost of a Load varies , my friend in wiltshire was quoted twice as much as we would pay around here...it was during the flood times so harder to deliver etc...
I was told to try and avoid Leylandii as it is too sappy.

How well insulated your house is makes such a difference. We will soon be moving from our caravans which have about an inch of insulation to a house with a foot of insulation. Even though the house is larger we forsee using much less wood.

Would Leylandii logs be okay once seasoned and dry?

i have burned leylandia after a years drying,fast and ho, quite fragrant,spits a bit iirc

the leafy bits burn very fast and hot if dry so beware bonfires in summer or growing annoying hedges

thanks dpack.

It would be burnt in a closed wood burner so spitting should not be an issue.

How Much Wood Should i Get For The Winter?


Twice as much as you think you need. Better to have more than you need than need more than you have.

If you have the space you really need to get a year ahead. Then you will use less wood as it will be dryer & so give off more usable heat.
