Welcome to Axewoods

Axewoods Co-operative is a not-for-profit volunteer organisation which undertakes a range of Woodland Management activities, by fully qualified and insured members, to both private, public and charitable woodland owners in return for the felled timber.

Members and Volunteers

Becoming a Member of Axewoods gives you and your family access to all of our activities, free logs, cut timber and use of equipment.  Members pay an annual fee which covers insurance, equipment purchase and maintenance, training and social activities.  We can help with the cost of courses and qualifications for woodland related skills and hold regular workshop sessions on a variety of topics.
Volunteers are welcome, we can provide some PPE and always give a full briefing so they are aware of health and safety issues. Many people come along as volunteers to see what we do and how we work before committing to become members.  Some grant giving bodies send their staff to join in with our workdays and log bank scheme.

Log Banks

We operate two Log Banks – one at Torbay Hospital in partnership with the Torbay NHS Trust, the other near Honiton to serve East Devon. The purpose is to supply free logs to those who struggle to keep their homes warm.

Support & Donate

You don’t have to be a member to support us. Many organisations support us financially and in other ways, to help us continue to fight fuel poverty in Devon.

Axewoods operates on the basis of exchanging the woodland management service for wood from the managed woodland. We then use that wood to help our members and other people who struggle to keep warm through our Log Bank.
