Cumbrian first for log business
Last updated at 17:32, Friday, 22 June 2012
A log processing business run by a husband and wife partnership has become the first in Cumbria to earn an industry charter mark.
T J Ewbank, of Bolton, near Appleby, has received the HETAS Quality Assured Fuel Accreditation, which means it supplies firewood with a moisture content of less than 25 per cent.
The business is owned by Thomas and Nicola Ewbank, who say they are delighted with the recognition.
Mr Ewbank said: “We cut our logs and then store them to season naturally for over 12 months before selling them.
“With more and more people now using environmentally friendly biomass boilers and woodburning stoves, customers can be assured of a consistently high quality wood fuel supply. Because trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, the wood fuel is considered carbon neutral.
“We are proud to support the planting of trees in Cumbria by working with the Woodland Trust and the Diggin the Trees volunteer group who receive a donation from every £55 dumpy bag of wood we sell.”
