Firewood is the oldest and cleanest fuel for heating and cooking known to man. It has been used since the dawn of history and is still used throughout the world today and is still one of the most
 important and one of the cleanest from an environmental view! Its use is growing each year and is probably more popular now than ever before.

Firewood is a renewable resource and in the UK is mostly produced as a by-product of other activities. Eg. Forestry, Land Development, and Agricultural Operations. Environmentally it is a clean fuel. It does not add to the "Greenhouse Effect" like fossil fuels eg oil, coal, etc. as any carbon dioxide released by burning is less than the tree used in growing and would have been released anyway during decomposition.
