Making it easier to burn dry wood

The Woodsure Ready to Burn initiative was officially launched on 12th September, at the Westonbrit Arboretum. The presentations included a video message from Thérèse Coffey, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

In her address, Dr. Coffee said “Many of us enjoy a fire at home, but what you burn and how you burn it has a real impact on air quality. The Ready to Burn logo will allow people to easily identify clean, quality wood fuel, allowing them to make informed choices that will not only benefit their appliances, but also wider air quality.”

The Stove Industry Alliance (SIA) backs Ready to Burn because it will make it easier for consumers to select wood that will have a moisture content that is certified to be below 20%. Modern clean burning stoves, like Ecodesign Ready, are designed to burn dry wood.
