HiLooking for dry Firewood suppliers along with good pricing near Sainte Foy, Duras or Eymet.Any help or recommendations much appreciated.Regards
If you have a sawmill near you they will often sell off large tied bundles of off cuts of all types of wood for about €12. There will be about a stere in the bundle. You will have to cut it to size, but it's cheap firewood.
Just need to find a sawmill now.
Any other recommended suppliers from anyone else that I can explore.
Tridome charge approx 60 euros for a cubic metre.
Have a look in the yellow pages for scierie. There are plenty in the book.
We live just one mile outside Duras and we use Joel LABAYSSE at Dieulivol, phone 06 78 08 88 23 or 05 56 71 90 32. We buy oak and whitebeam cut to 50cm lengths and delivered to us. Another place you could try is at La Sauvetat du Dropt. As you approach Sauvetat from Duras, just as you enter the village there is a seller of wood for fires on the left with a big sign advertising the business.
Beware of burning "any old wood" especially pine, since the risk of chimey fire is increased due to the resins that deposite themselves in the flue pipe. We know many folk who burn pine off-cuts, but it is not a good idea unless you are fastideous about regular chimney sweeping.
Thanks for the info.
Don’t forget that the winter is not the normal season to buy wood, that tends to be in August/September.
Pine gets a bad press, there are many places where it is the staple firewood.
Burning pine is not a problem yes it burns quicker, but mixed with a bit of oak you will experience proper heat from your stove. I come from Scotland and all we burn up there is pine as oak is nearly £100 a m3. There is also a good wood supplier outside Somensac on the road to Eymet or try leboncoin.fr
maybe it depends on where you lived alcamp we burned ash and oak and it wasn't that expensive
Just found a new supplier in Lauzun who supplies Oak @ 60 Euros per Stere.
Saves me foraging.
Do you have the details of the supplier in Lauzun?
