Winter has arrived in Bathurst and there's a big source for natural heating.
And Lachlan Roberts is loving it.
The AAA Firewood owner has been kept busy the past few months, with people across the Bathurst region demanding their winter firewood supply.
And this year's wood is some of the best.
"The wood we've got, which has been sourced from a private property in western NSW, is well seasoned yellow box," he said.
"It's really hard and really dry, which means one log will burn all night long."
The phone calls started coming in for Mr Roberts in March, as people quickly sought to get their winter supply sorted by the time winter hit.
It's also a timely reminder to residents that they face a $5500 fine if they are caught collecting firewood in the wrong place.
Anyone caught harvesting timber for firewood along the region's travelling stock reserves will face a fine.
It is an offence under the Local Land Services Act 2013 to harvest timber from travelling stock reserves.
Firewood collection includes the removal of dead timber which acts as habitat for ground-dwelling species.
Fallen logs also contribute to nutrient recycling and enhance ground cover which reduces soil erosion and water runoff.
