Site audit

The price we can offer will depend on various factors. These include the location of the site, the quality and volume of materials, how they have been kept and whether you’re able to do the loading.

Sometimes we may ask you to send us photos of the materials to help us determine the price we can offer. We may follow up with a site visit and, in some instances, a trial load.

Chipping and shredding

We supply the majority of the arboricultural and forestry residues we collect to power plants as biomass.

If you don’t have the resources onsite to process your raw materials, we can handle that for you. The options include:

  • our team bringing in equipment to process the materials onsite
  • taking the raw materials away to process offsite

Loading

We can provide a completely hassle-free loading service.

For cordwood we will generally bring a timber truck with an integrated loading crane.

For any other collections, if you have your own loading equipment onsite, we can use that. Alternatively we can supply an appropriate wheel loader, along with an experienced operator to load your materials.
