Welcome To Borders Firewood
Thanks very much for visiting our website. We offer a comprehensive range of firewood and take great pride in the products and the service we provide.
Borders Firewood are a carbon conscious, quality hardwood and softwood supplier based in the heart of the Scottish Borders. Located at Stagehall Farm near Stow, we are in the perfect location for delivering throughout the central Borders. Delivery is free of charge within 2o miles of TD1 2SS, although minimum orders may apply. Regrettably we are no longer able to deliver to Edinburgh. Please check your distance or get in touch if you’re unsure if your within our delivery area.
With timber availability over the last year proving a real problem we have been unable to build sufficient stock of fully dried firewood. As a result, we have bolstered our own supplies of Kiln dried logs with a good supply of the finest kiln dried logs we are able to source. The Ash and Oak and Birch mix that we have bought in, like most of competitors, comes from eastern Europe. We have looked thoroughly into the sustainability, environmental impact and the value for money of all the various options for buying in Kiln dried logs. The logs we have chosen originate in Latvia where over 42% of there land mass is forested compared to just 13% in the UK. The trees growing there also grow more slowly making the timber denser with a higher calorific value, burning for longer and giving off more heat. Obviously there are drawbacks with the transportation and resulting increased carbon footprint. On balance it is still a very clean and sustainable fuel a high quality one. We believe that it is very important to be transparent about where all our logs comes from to allow you to make an informed decision on what you buy.
We are now also selling part seasoned logs at a slightly discounted rate. Although the costs are all still the same for us we recognise that the heating value is somewhat decreased. We would recommend storing the logs inside for a couple of days or more before burning or adding them to a fire that is already up to temperature to get the most out of them.
Thankfully we have been able to source an excellent supply of local timber recently and are working hard to get it processed and dried for you as quickly as we possibly can.
NEW BAG 4 LIFE SCHEME
As a business which is really proud to sell sustainably sourced firewood from the Borders, we are pleased to be introducing a more sustainable method of delivering your logs to you. Our Bag 4 Life scheme will not only help reduce waste and reduce the environmental impact of our business but also cut costs for ourselves and any customers who recycle.
If you have bought firewood from us before, you will know that we deliver your logs in a strong net bag and we will continue to do so.
What we want to do is encourage as much re-use of these bags as possible. We currently only get around half of the net bags returned to us and by introducing this incentive, we aim to considerably reduce the amount of plastic that we use and reward you for doing so at the same time.
With this in mind, we are introducing a new set of prices for our firewood which includes the cost of a net bag. However, if you return the bag to us on your next order we will provide you with a discount for doing so. Also if you already have a bag or just want the bag tipped then you can also use the discount code. So you only pay the additional charge if you don’t have any bags to return. We will also still give you a free bag of kindling for every returned bag.
The whole point is really to encourage the return of the bags so that they can be used over and over again.
