Following discussions between the forestry industry (Confor) and DEFRA, it has been confirmed that necessary workers directly involved in key wood product supply chains are classified as critical workers in relation to the Governments Covid-19 restrictions.
A DEFRA spokesperson has confirmed that:
"Those involved in the supply chain of wood for key goods (including, but not limited to pallets, heating, packaging, tissue paper, timber harvesting, sawmills) should be considered key workers.
Fast-growing firewood supplier Logs Online is continuing to expand with the launch of its new website and the opening of a new distribution centre in Chester, enabling them to supply premium quality, kiln-dried fuel to even more businesses across the UK.
