Wood fuel and wood-burning stoves
Heating with wood
Wood-burning stoves can supplement an existing heating system and can also make a wonderful focal point in your living or dining room. Back-boiler stoves provide heating for the whole house and/or hot water as well.
Heating buildings using woodfuel could save you money whilst also reducing CO2 emissions and helping the UK meet its targets for renewable energy. Gillian Alker, formerly the Forestry Commission’s Woodfuels Officer for the South East, told WinACC's open meeting on 5th June, that there is over 2 million tonnes of wood available in the UK from under-managed woodland.
