Defra wood burning Guide

Defra (the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs) supports the Woodsure Ready to Burn Scheme and has created this publicly accessible practical guide on how to reduce environmental and health impacts when using wood-burning stoves or open fires. As well as mentioning the Ready to Burn logo as a guarantee of good quality dry wood, it lists guidance on maximizing fuel efficiency, appliance servicing and has important information on chimney sweeping – following these steps will help to reduce fuel and maintenance costs, ensure optimum safety for you and your family and minimise the impact on the environment.

The document also includes an informative section describing the law in Smoke Control Areas.
