We take the sustainability of our wood pellets very seriously and question every step of our process.
The raw material that comes into our plant comes from forests within 80 miles of the factory. Most from UNESCO’s Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere Reserve of which Land Energy is a Proud Supporter.
The forests we use have felling licences and every tree that is felled, is replanted, typically within 12 months.
The logs we use are those that are rejected by the sawmill sector, either due to the size or shape of the timber. Logs that are too skinny, large or bent are scooped up by land Energy and put to good use in our production plant.
Where possible, we make use of our coastal location to receive deliveries by ship, helping to reduce road travel and emissions.
