Ready to Burn Firewood

Modified on Mon, 20 Nov 2023 at 03:24 PM

Ready to Burn is a Government backed scheme designed to promote the burning of properly dry firewood – which means wood that has a moisture content of less than 20%.


Better for you, better for the environment

Burning Ready to Burn firewood results in 75% less smoke emissions than burning wet wood – which is especially important when you consider that poor air quality is reported to contribute to the early death of over 40,000 people every year in the UK.


Ready to Burn firewood is also better for your appliance as wet wood can blacken your stove glass and lead to the build up of tar and soot in your chimney.


So when you’re choosing firewood look out for the orange Ready to Burn label – you’ll know you’re getting the best wood for yourself, your fire and your planet.


As one of the leading firewood suppliers in the UK, Homefire feels  it is important that we not only lead the way in raising awareness of Ready to Burn firewood, but also supply our customers with the best choice of products.
