From quote to collection in no more than four simple steps
The first step in our simple solution to biomass is to check for quality, which may require a site audit. This includes determining access, site conditions, the grade and volume of materials to be collected, and whether they can be processed for biomass on site or need to be taken away. We may be able to determine all of the above via a telephone audit and site photos followed by a trial load. Occasionally, we may follow up with an in-person visit.
All of the above factors will help us to determine the best price we can offer for recovering your arboriculture residues.
Understanding every stage of the process is part of our objective, which includes providing a straightforward and hassle-free loading service.
For a no-fuss collection of your arboriculture residues our team is fully certified to use your onsite equipment, alternatively Sylvagen can provide the appropriate wheel loader with an experienced operator if required. Cordwood typically requires a timber truck with an integrated loading crane, which we can supply also.
In addition to transporting raw materials domestically, Sylvagen regularly organises international shipments and can also arrange for virgin materials to be transported across Europe, including Scandinavia.
