Our aims are to provide the means by which our members can:

  • secure their own woodfuel needs, improve their understanding of woodland ecology and work together for collective community benefits.
  • connect local woodlands with local installed wood boilers and wood burners - thereby addressing carbon emissions and fuel poverty.
  • learn woodland craft skills, team working skills and offer woodland training events
  • physically contribute to work sites, co-ordinate volunteers and organise social activities
  • address local fuel poverty and help those in need of wood fuel.

To date we have worked with: The Woodland Trust, The National Trust, Clinton Devon Estates, Somerset Wildlife Trust, The Donkey Sanctuary, Historic England, the Forestry Commission and private landowners.  


Landowners: We come fully insured, fully trained and operate in virtually the same way as professional contractors…only we work for the wood.

Members: We can provide training and exciting work days for you to take home wood we cut. 

Please contact Alan Dyer for more information through the Axewoods e-mail .  Cutting season is October to February/March with processing and other activities during the rest of the year.
