PROJECT SUMMARY

Diversification into firewood processing to compliment the existing service offered by Arbocare Tree Specialists.

BACKGROUND

James Lynch is the owner of Arbocare Tree Specialists and prior to funding from ARC North West was a tree surgery business in operation for 3 years. However, following research into the solid fuel market the promoter realised it was a growing market given the costs relating to oil, coal and gas. The business offered tree surgery services and therefore had an abundance of raw material which could be processed into firewood.

ACTIVITIES

Specialist equipment and marketing materials for the business were purchased including kindling machine, log splitter, chainsaws, marketing (including leaflets, flyers, cards, signage and website upgrade), wood chipper and circular saw.
