In this video Steve Scott from the Forestry Commission talks to John Shipp from J S Forestry in Essex, about how they received a grant through 2007-2013 Rural Development Programme for England to mechanise their firewood business, resulting in a six-fold increase in productivity.

John talks about his experience of the process and the difference it has made to the business, showing that although the process is necessarily rigourous, a successful application can be very beneficial.
