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. 

Log Bank:  We have launched an initiative to supply logs to those in need and experiencing fuel poverty.  This will be a pilot project in the Honiton and Ottery St Mary area during 2018 and we will be investigating the best way to identify those in need and supply logs.  Please contact via the e-mail address below in the first instance.

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.
