The Ready to Burn scheme, which is backed by the government, is designed to promote the burning of dry firewood.
To be classed as Ready to Burn, firewood must have a moisture content of below 20%.
This is important because burning Ready to Burn firewood results in up to 75% less smoke emissions compared to burning wet wood. With poor air quality contributing to the premature deaths of 40,000 people every year (WHO, 2011), switching to Ready to Burn Firewood can have a positive effect on the environment and your health.
Ready to Burn firewood is also better for your appliance as wet wood can lead to a blackening of the stove glass and a build up of soot in your chimney.
So now when you see the orange Ready to Burn logo on wood fuel packaging you know you are getting a quality wood fuel product with low moisture, low smoke emissions and improved heating performance.
