Order your logs in the next month or so and you could benefit in several ways
Britain is relatively lightly forested compared to mainland Europe but, according to the Forestry Commission, we could use a lot more British-grown wood as fuel without harming the sustainability or environmental quality of our woods and forests, and without impinging on wood supplies to other users.
That’s because there is still a lot of wood that is not currently being used commercially that could be utilised for wood fuel. In fact, Forestry Commission England estimates that up to 2 million tonnes a year could be produced from currently “under-managed” woodland in England alone, saving 400,000 tonnes of carbon emissions a year.
Many people wait until the first chills of autumn before they think about ordering their store of logs. Order in the next month or so, however, and you could benefit in several ways:
Solid Fuel Technology Institute figures show that wood remains the cheapest form of heating fuel. So buy your logs now and you could save even more, as well as helping to improve the environment through the use of renewable energy.
