Whether you want logs or help with a woodland you own, join us!

Launched in 2014, the Logs 4 Labour aims to bring our lovely local woodlands back into use.

Woodland owners offer days for volunteers to help manage woods, and volunteers collect logs for wood-burners.

Everyone wins! Woodlands are better cared for, and wood as a fuel is the logical choice for renewable energy in Surrey. Along the way, we all get more fresh air and exercise, and biodiversity is improved.

Help needed! We are looking for volunteers that would support the woodfuel scheme, step up, help shape and organise events. If you would like to hear more come  send a quick email to Jane for further info.

Logs 4 Labour is a Community Woodfuel scheme in Woodlands around Haslemere and Chiddingfold

Logs 4 Labour is the umbrella coordinating body, organised by  Chiddgreen (CG), with support from Transition Haslemere (TH) and the National Trust at Swan Barn Farm (SBF). The scheme is event based, with organised days in the woods. There is no membership fee. Events are free and open to all, unless otherwise mentioned in the event particulars.
Participation by volunteering labour in the woods is essential to get wood – this differentiates Logs 4 Labour from a firewood business. Logs are collected at the end of events  – a small donation is requested to keep the scheme going.

Interested?  Subscribe to the L4L email list.

Note: For all the events you might join, please bring sturdy shoes and gloves; a hand saw and/or loppers (ideally both); and lunch and a warm drink where appropriate.  Only hand tools are allowed for insurance reasons.  Under-16s are welcome as long as they are supervised by a responsible adult.  Unless the wood is explicitly described as seasoned, it will need to be stored for at least a year before burning.
