Apple Firewood: Apple Orchard

In order to establish an Apple

orchard, standard, young trees are

planted and it can be up to ten

years before they will bear sufficient

quantities of fruit, during this early

growing stage it is important to

establish a well shaped tree that can

carry the large quantities of fruit

produced in later years.

It is a very attractive wood and in the

past would be used for country furniture,

quite often mixed with other woods

such as Pear.

Old style cottage doors were quite often

made from apple wood along with tool

handles and pipes as the wood

polishes naturally with use.

Ideal for getting a high temperature very

quickly and keeping it with excellent charcoal.

flowers the following year.

carefully thinned each year – this is

where our firewood comes from.

Polished apples are a traditional

gift for a teacher – in the 16th to 18th centuries,

teachers were very poorly

paid and so the parents would give

them baskets of apples.

When wages started to increase so

the quantity of apples decreased

and a single fruit was given instead.

Apple trees have always been a

popular host for Mistletoe,

unfortunately due to the decline

of the apple industry in the UK

the majority of Mistletoe

now comes from France.
