We love trees! We would much rather leave them alone to live out their long and beautiful lives but sometimes a tree out grows its surroundings and needs to be removed, tidied up or made safe. We want to get involved in jobs like these because we care deeply about the importance of our work.

No harmful chemicals
When cutting timber with certain saws some lubrication and/or coolant is needed. Larch is one of the main species we cut and because of the high resin content we need a lot of lubrication to stop the resin build up on the blade. We started with water but although cheap was not great for keeping the blades clean, then it was diesel but although it worked better than water we all went home smelling like diesel at the end of the day and given what we are trying to do here it felt all wrong. Then we came across Plantoil who make a plant based lubricant that works even better than diesel (and it doesn’t smell too bad either!)
Solar energy offsetting
We have a shed with a big roof facing south, we have sawmilling machinery that runs on electric power, so it made a lot of sense to cover the roof with enough solar panels to generate the amount of electricity throughout the year that we would use in the sawmill. When the machines are running there is too much load for the solar panels to supply everything needed so we cannot get away from needing the grid connection however across a year our calculations were not too far out. We could maybe put up 2 more panels to get the calculations correct!
So regardless of where the electricity in the grid is coming from we can take comfort in the fact that we are close to electricity neutral.
Installing solar panels is a good way to lower your carbon footprint. Solar energy is a natural, renewable source because it can be replenished unlike fossil fuels which are finite. Solar energy produces little or no emissions when it’s converted to electricity.
To give you a clearer idea of what these numbers mean, 1.3 tonnes of carbon emissions is equivalent to the amount of CO2 emissions that come from using 536 gallons of petrol or charging 607,904 smartphones. In fact, a standard solar PV system in the UK will avoid 39 tons of carbon dioxide over 30 years which is equivalent to growing 2,365 tree seedlings for 10 years.
