3) We pick this up from the roadside in our timber truck and haul it into one of our wood yards to be seasoned or force dried.

4) If the wood is to be seasoned it is stacked in our woodyard for a year or so before it is ready for chipping.

5) If the wood is to be force dried on our drying floor, it is chipped soon after it arrives by one of our 500hp chippers.

6) The machinery we use, from the timber trucks to the chippers to the drying floors are all owned by Pentland Biomass to help us make sure the quality of our product is as it should be. We have over £2m invested in our fuel production process.

10) Most woodchip leaves our yard in one of our artic trucks. Our deliveries are normally around 20 tonnes (80m3) and are undertaken in one of our walking floor trailers.

We do some smaller deliveries too and some customers come in and pick their own woodchip. All loads are weighed using our onsite weighbridge. Our woodchip is BSL registered.

This process ensures that Pentland Biomass send out high quality, well-priced woodchip every working day.

We hire out our chippers too and have at least two at any point in time. See our page on chipping for more information.
