Gary Primrose who manages the woodlands around Yewfield features in a Cumbria Woodlands case study on managing the plantation and explains the long term goal of setting up a wood fuel cycle for the house, providing chip and firewood, while converting the woodland from coniferous forest to deciduous woodland. All the heating for the house and apartments is now provided by wood chip.
