Nigel Fisher, Conservator of Wytham Woods

'During the winter, Farmer Gow's have been assisting Oxford University at Wytham Woods. 

A programme of thinning of plantations has been underway to improve the nature conservation value of the site.

The hardwood thinnings then being utilisied for the local firewood market.   

 


Do you know which tree species produce the best firewood?

 

Ash the most sought-after firewood. Rapid burning even when freshly felled. Emits a great amount of heat. Particularly valuable for fire lighting. Splits easily.
Elm makes a pleasant and long-lasting fire when partially seasoned
Hazel well known for its value as firewood. Much sought after
Oak hard to beat for lasting properties and amount of heat produced but difficult to light.
Sycamore considerable heating properties.
Wild Cherry difficult to start but once alight lasts long and gives a fierce heat. Best when old and partially seasoned
Conifers generally inclined to spark with no great heat value. Best in wood burning stoves. Sold as kindling but NOT at Farmer Gow’s – NO SOFTWOODS!

Free deliveries to households in Ashbury, Baulking, Faringdon, Great and Little Coxwells, Kingston Lisle, Littleworth (near Faringdon), Shrivenham, Stanford-in-the-Vale, Uffington and Watchfield.
