GREAT NEWS Volume deliveries of high quality dry firewood to resume

*** UPDATED ANNOUNCEMENT Friday 20th January 2023 ***

The high costs of gas and electricity have led to many householders using their open fires thus heating just few rooms and many more have recently had log-burners installed. Furthermore, the introduction of the ‘Woodsure’ government certification scheme (which guarantees quality with spot-visits, and which we have fully enrolled in as ‘Ready-to-Burn’ suppliers) has restricted supplies as many small suppliers have given up.

Cranking up our own supplies of firewood from Blackrow Plantation is not an overnight process as we store and dry firewood sustainably. We have therefore taken the exceptional step of importing a huge container of quality logs from Latvia. Alone amongst European countries Latvia have been winning sustainability and low carbon awards by increasing their areas of growing timber and afforestation and their hardwood birch is dry, aromatic and burns well.

These supplies are due to arrive at the end of this month/ early next and our new all-electric van will then give us the option of fulfilling deliveries in all-weathers rather than relying on open trailers.

Bags may be collected from sustainably managed woodland close to the NDR in the area north of Horsford or may be delivered for 10 bags or more within 10 miles or at reasonable cost further afield.

Logs in NetsNorfolk Country Logs are not supplied loose but are always supplied in bags for convenience and can be easily transported direct to your log store.

As well as our delivery service for volume, there is always the roadside vending station on the Holt Road, just south of the Shorthorn Road for small quantities and emergency supplies at £5/bag which is stocked and open 24/7.  Click below for directions

Great News from Blackrow Country Logs - January 20th 2023

Greetings,

You may well have enquired recently about the supply/delivery of logs and have possibly not had our usual response and confirmation of supply; I feel that both an explanation and apology are due as we are very sorry and here are the reasons why and how we intend to revolutionise our service.

The Situation

This winter had seen an exceptional demand for good, well-seasoned logs and suppliers have been overwhelmed. Here at Blackrow Country Logs, we have sold our normal annual quantity in just a few months, which exhausted dried stocks. We have been working ‘hand to mouth’ just putting emergency supplies of dried logs on our roadside display on the Holt Road nr to NR10 4DE and we hope many of you have been helped in that way.

The Explanation

The high costs of gas and electricity have led to many householders using their open fires thus heating just few rooms and many more have recently had log-burners installed. Furthermore, the introduction of the ‘Woodsure’ government certification scheme (which guarantees quality with spot-visits, and which we have fully enrolled in as ‘Ready-to-Burn’ suppliers) has restricted supplies as many small suppliers have given up.

Our Planned Solution

Cranking up our own supplies of firewood from Blackrow Plantation is not an overnight process as we store and dry firewood sustainably. We have therefore taken the exceptional step of importing a huge container of quality logs from an industry colleague and friend in Latvia. Alone amongst European countries Latvia have been winning sustainability and low carbon awards by increasing their areas of growing timber and afforestation and their hardwood birch is dry, aromatic and burns well.

These supplies are due to arrive at the end of this month/ early next and our new all-electric van will then give us the option of fulfilling deliveries in all-weathers rather than relying on open trailers.

How you can help

As a recipient of this note, we believe that you have been trying to order logs and we now wish to deliver them. You may have found some alternative supplies but, please bear in mind, that the current demand vs supply imbalance is likely to last. Therefore, advance ordering and stocking is advisable, and you may wish to order more than usual. Commodity prices increases and inflation mean that you would never lose out as costs are only going to rise.

I would therefore be grateful, if you would respond to this by phone message, text or email with your latest estimate of your requirements which we will endeavour to fulfil starting in 10-14 days’ time. Our recent terms will still apply and have not changes in this crisis. Viz:

Collected Price £5 per bag; Delivered Prices: 1-19bags, £6 per bag; 20-39 bags, £5.50 per bag; 40 and above, £5 per bag

Free delivery is normally undertaken within 10 miles radius, but large loads may be delivered with just a modest fee further afield. For the next week or two we will try to keep our roadside vending station stocked where possible.

Conclusion

We hope that this update is helpful and reassuring and thus removes the current worry and uncertainty that currently applies to the supply of good quality ready to burn dry logs.

In the longer term, we are gearing up to supply this growing demand whilst valuing our 5star reputation for quality and value.
