Costs.

As we all know prices always go up and rarely down. All our operating costs have gone up, rent, wages, fuel, and not least the cost of buying in woodfuel to sell. Though we are maintaining our margins we do need to increase our costs in order to stay viable. The online buy section of the website identifies these costs.

We aim to obtain community woodland which would put at least the acqusition of softwood and hardwood within our control, and the quality of this woodfuel also. This will not be a quick fix but will bring prices down…………not many businesses can say that! Watch this space and be ready to give your support.
