The owner of Overnoons Farm in West Sussex has benefitted from his relationship with LC Energy in the clearing of poplar from his woodland. He was able to fell 800 tonnes over summer a couple of years ago, with LC Energy’s help. Logs from the woodland are now used to heat a log batch boiler in his Sussex Farmhouse, which has led to significant savings.
Another example is LC Energy’s work with Peter and Brenda Tebby, managing their 44 acres of ADNW and PAWS mixed woodland they own in Surrey. Previously unmanged, we helped add value to the low grade timber whilst making changes to promote the growth of native ground flora. The low grade material produced is stacked on their front drive, and the rest is taken to a local LC Energy hub, stored to dry, then processed into premium grade wood chip for delivery to local domestic and commercial customers.

I have been very grateful to meet up with LC Energy because this has been a difficult area of timber to deal with. Poplar is a low-grade wood, I have been looking for 10 years to try and find something to do with this crop. For me, the upshot of this is that I see an economic use that gives a viable and practical solution.”
– Richard Southall, Farm Owner
“Our aim is to manage the woodland commercially, whilst enhancing the environmental value of the woodland, to this end we have removed a large area of rhododendron and an area of windblown western hemlock… Working with LC Energy has been great – there is no pressure to produce a set amount per year, they are always friendly on the phone and arrange to have the timber collected within a week.”
– Peter and Brenda Tebby, Woodland Owners
