If you dont mind a bit of a run out go to Delanere Forest, you can pick it up where the rangers have been working & left it on the ground, You may need a good saw.

1) You cannot legally take fallen wood, seeds or leaf from Forestry Commission land.
2) You cannot legally take fallen wood from privately owned forests without seeking permission from the woodland owner.
That's straight out of the Captain's Log!

The forestry commission sell all their wood through auctions. You can bid on-line for dried / cut / uncut / and firewood.

A note of advice:
Another thing to consider when 'acquiring' logs/timber from woodlands...
They may be left on site due to environmental legislation if they are affected by a disease such as Phytophthora, Armillaria, Hymenoscyphus, etc. then legislation may prohibit the transport of such timber and offenders can be prosecuted. Not long ago the EU prevented the sale of Ash trees due to an outbreak of Ash die-back. At one time we 'cleaned up' woodlands, but these days felled timber is often left on site to naturally decay as it would in an unmanaged woodland where fungi and insects would gradually turn the timber into compost. Also, brash from the canopy makes favourable habitat piles, promoting nature, increasing biodiversity and enhancing the ecology. I used to have a log burning stove but I purchased my timber from legitimate sources. As with everything we do these days, I suggest people consider the environment and larger picture before embarking on any intervention into nature and the the natural environment. Thanks for reading!
