At Forth Resource Management (FRM) we use sustainably sourced roundwood from our local area. This is key not only to help support the local economy but also to ensure the carbon cost incurred in the haulage of both the roundwood and the woodchip is kept to a minimum. FRM woodchip has been air dried for up to 12 months and then further dried on a drying floor so the moisture levels are < 30% , this ensures excellent boiler efficiency.
The most common sizes required are usually G30 and G50. On a regular basis we undertake a 'batch' chipping operation with large, specialist wood fuel chippers to process material to the specification required. The wood fuel is stored in large covered barns, free of any source of contamination before being placed into the drying floor. The drying floor uses hot air which is blown under the specially designed floor to dry the chip to a constant, below 30%, moisture content thus ensuring a product with high calorific value.
We can deliver woodchip with our walking floor lorry or with our Express Blower truck, which is ideal for sites with restricted access and storage hoppers.

Our range of sustainably harvested logs, kindling and pizza oven logs are kiln-dried in our purpose-built drying kiln powered by overflow heat produced by our on farm power station. This ensures a consistent high quality of firewood with a moisture content of less than 20%, which means a hotter, cleaner burn. Mixed hardwood logs are available in a range of sizes from 8” to 30” and can be delivered split or in rounds depending on your requirements.
We are able to supply in the following amounts:
● Carry size nets
● Builder's bags
● Loose loads
All of our firewood is sourced from sustainably thinned Scottish woodlands in an environmentally friendly manner from the local area to produce quality logs with a minimum environmental impact.
