The East Devon Log Bank is an initiative to make dry, seasoned logs available free of charge to local people who struggle to keep their home warm during winter– just like a Food Bank. Timber is taken to the log bank sites and stored for seasoning and processing. Logs are not kiln dried.
The Ebico Trust for Sustainable Development have funded the provision of polytunnels where we can store dry logs ready for distribution. We are working with local agencies and volunteer organisations who can identify those in need and arrange delivery of logs.
Axewoods has a number of trailers which are used by volunteers to deliver logs. We also organise a series of days where people can come to help process the wood and take home logs.
