The price of firewood has plateaued after good increases over the late winter / early spring with standing sale prices achieving £27 – £30/tonne depending upon quality and site constraints. However, more recently we have started to see a slight decrease on standing sale prices as ground conditions have improved and more product has entered the market.
Conifer sawlog prices have also remained very strong due to high demand from sawmills with no real sign of dropping anytime soon, with some standing sales achieving £70+/tonne. Softwood chip prices are also doing well achieving a standing price of between £17 and £20/tonne.
