Virgin Wood Chip

We pride ourselves on producing premium quality, sustainable and super-efficient force dried virgin wood chip.

It is the perfect mix of hard and soft woods, which gives it a high calorific value whilst keeping costs low and has a moisture content of 20-25%, therefore providing you with optimal heat output and a greater return on your investment. Our clean-burning fuel produces low ash residue and no clinker, meaning your boiler can continue to perform to its best and provide you with low maintenance costs and high RHI payments.

We put our product through stringent quality control measures, ensuring our wood chip is of a consistent size with very few fines and a low moisture content. Find out more about our quality assurance.

Typically, we produce our chip to G50, with a moisture content of 20-25% as we have found this provides the optimal performance for the majority of boiler types. If, however, you have a preference over your chip sizes and moisture content, we will happily produce these for you.

We also offer a next day delivery service and managed fuel delivery. Click here to find out more about these services.

The wood we source comes from local, sustainable, well-managed, FSC certified forests. We are on the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL), which confirms our products meet the sustainability criteria required for participants to be able to claim their RHI payments. It’s worth noting, BSL authorisation does not guarantee the quality of the fuel. We, however, are certified by Woodsure, the UK’s only wood fuel quality assurance scheme. You can therefore rest assured that the wood fuel you purchase from us is of excellent quality as well as being sustainably and ethically sourced.

Our premium virgin wood chip is very competitively priced. Please call us or complete this short form to get an accurate price.
