At TJ Ewbank Logs we pride ourselves on the products we offer and the processes we use to ensure they are to best possible standards. We are members of the following:
The HETAS logo stands for:
Good product – We assess producers against European standards for solid biomass fuel, including the absence of any chemical treatment. We are committed to help ensure that consumers get the safest possible offering.
Good product description – Giving customers the choice over which fuel source to choose from is often an issue. Any firewood you see bearing the HETAS mark is governed by strict guidelines with regards moisture content, length, pack size and country of origin.This information gives you the opportunity to make an informed choice on what fuel goes into your appliance.
Good process – Good process is a large part of the HETAS scheme. The drive behind this is to ensure that consumers get products that always meet a quality standard, so you know what to expect. We assess accredited producers processes in order to see whether they can consistently deliver good products. Consistent fuel will help the reliability of your appliance.
About Diggin’ the Trees
Diggin’ the Trees is a not-for-profit tree planting group that enables volunteers to plant native trees in North Cumbria.
The aim of the group is to strengthen community links and empower people to improve their local environment. We are committed to identifying potentially suitable sites for tree planting and promoting the benefits of woodland amongst local landowners.
Our work has far-reaching benefits, beginning with the sociable aspect of the planting days, the subsequent improvement in the environment and eventual value returned to the community.
In the previous planting season (winter 2009/2010) several pilot projects were undertaken with help from The Woodland Trust. During this time nearly 2000 trees were planted by our volunteers.
As the group becomes more established special interest sub-projects may evolve. Group members are already taking action to work with schools and develop forest gardens.

Suppliers who register their fuel(s) on the List will be required to submit data for audit by the BSL Administrator. Suppliers who successfully register fuel(s) on the RHI Biomass Suppliers List will be permitted to label their compliant products with the BSL mark to illustrate that this fuel complies with RHI sustainability criteria.
