Based on the Downham estate in Lancashire fuel wood chipped for boilers is being produced from its own and neighbouring estate woodlands. Production of pellets for use in smaller domestic stoves and boilers is currently being evaluated with a view to commencing local production. Customers include government organisations, private estates and charities.
