History of the Community Firewood Program

OVERVIEW

The Community Firewood Program started as a Southern Willamette Forest Collaborative project in partnership with the  City of Oakridge, Inbound LLC, and LRAPA. 90% of our sales have gone to low-income, senior, or disabled residents.


OUR 5 GOALS

  1. To help our community's most vulnerable

  2. Create Local Jobs

  3. Improve Air Quality by ensuring dry wood is available for our community

  4. Repurpose logging slash into firewood

  5. Provide Reputable, Affordable, Seasoned Firewood


OUR TIMELINE

2015: Roseburg Forest Products donated & loaded 70 cords of logging slash. The City of Oakridge provided transportation. Inbound LLC processed the firewood, employing 4 locals.

2016: Roseburg Forest Products donated & loaded 48 cords of logging slash. The City of Oakridge provided transportation. Seneca Timber Company donated mill ends & Davidson Construction provided transportation. Inbound LLC processed the firewood, employing 3 locals.

2018: Seneca Timber Company donated 70 cords of logging slash. Jerry Swearingen Construction donated loading. The City of Oakridge provided transportation. Inbound LLC processed the firewood, employing 5 locals.


THE FIREWOOD BUSINESS IS NOT A MONEY MAKING ENDEAVOR. THIS PROGRAM HAS NOT TURNED A PROFIT AND WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT PARTNER DONATIONS.
