DEFRA have announced their decision to ban the sales of wet firewood in the UK with a moisture content greater than 20% by February 2021 when sold in amounts less than 2 cubic metes and a ban on the sale of the most polluting house coal from 2023.

Our kiln dried logs comply with all regulations and we are an accredited supplier of Ready to Burn, this scheme makes it easy for you, as the customer to find the cleanest fuels for burning at home. Using fuels that are approved and labelled as Ready to Burn also means it’s easy to comply with Air Quality (Domestic Solid Fuels Standards) (England) Regulations 2020 that outlaw the sale of wet wood and house coal, which are the most polluting fuels.

All firewood suppliers will need to be environmentally conscious and only sell wood of a moisture content of less than 20%. This means that any firewood that is not kiln dried will need to be seasoned for at least 2 years to get the moisture content down below 20%.

All of our logs are less than 20% moisture, kiln dried and certified by Woodsure ready to burn scheme, which guarantees less than 20% moisture in your firewood. This is closely monitored and inspected by the forestry commission.

Our Ready to Burn number is; WS5348/00001 and you will find us on their website.
