Springbok Co-op to produce 100% of own wood chip by 2019

Following the grant of planning permission for a woodchip storage barn on a site a few hundred yards to the biomass installation, Springbok Co-op has announced that it expects to be able to move to producing 100% of the 250 tonnes of wood chip it needs annually to supply the Springbok boilers by the end of 2019.   The Co-op is currently stockpiling very low quality roundwood and “brash”  from the woodlands in the immediate area.  This timber product is of no interest to the commercial timber trade and would otherwise be left to rot down in the woods (suppressing the ground flora and fauna) or possibly even burnt in the woods.
