North Norfolk Logs Online
Posted 04/04/2018 : By: Alice Goodrich
North Norfolk Logs Online, based in Marsham, secured LEADER funding in June 2017. The business supplies firewood to local people and businesses in the North Norfolk area. They started work over 3 years ago, during which time they have established a regular customer base with sales increasing year to year.
The objective of this project was to manage farm woodland sustainably and cost-effectively by providing a return on silvicultural operations (thinning and coppicing) which are otherwise uneconomic, through processing Roundwood into wood fuel logs. The business purchased a log processor, log deck, log trailer crane and created a new hard standing area. This enabled the business to improve the flow of its day-to-day operations, expand its customer base, increase turnover and create a new role.
