The landscape would be bland without woodland and Longford prides itself in actively managing its 2,200 acres of woodland. From commercial evergreen plantations producing quality softwood, to mixed deciduous native trees specifically Beech, Ash and Oak many of which are strategically designated for long term retention.
A bi-product of Silvicultural management has been established in the form of Longford Logs – a hardwood logging business whereby orders are taken for quality seasoned hardwood for domestic use. This product is delivered to your door to keep the cold at bay over the long winter months. To place an order complete the form below.
Cricket bat willow is grown on the fringes of the water meadows and supplied to Gray Nicholls to manufacture quality bats for current and future sportsmen.
Nothing is wasted; our poor grade timber is now felled, dried and chipped for the biomas market.
So you can see how and why this extremely valuable resource is cared for by the Estate.
Please use the form below to order your logs and you will receive an acknowledgement by email – Delivery is within a 10 mile radius of Nunton, Salisbury. Our Logs are 2 years seasoned hard wood but please be aware that they are air dried in stacks around the estate and cut to size on the day of delivery. We cannot therefore guarantee that they will all be completely dry if the weather has been inclement as the dry bark can soak up moisture very quickly. With wood burning stoves, to get the very best from our logs you would need to store them in a dry place 6 – 12 months before use.
*PLEASE NOTE* -
We have many pre-orders for Longford Logs and September is now full so delivery is now already going into October. We have not increased our prices for the last three years but with the soaring fuel costs the cost of a delivery for next season is £170 per load to your door.
With best wishes for the summer months.
