At The Stove Yard we've always encouraged our customers to buy their logs locally whenever they can, thus minimising the overall carbon footprint of their wood burning stove use – which is just about as low as you can get for any type of home heating. Now Grown in Britain, a campaign aimed at encouraging us to buy wood products (and that includes everything from fence posts to designer furniture as well as wood fuel), has received £1.2 million which will go towards a new project aimed at improving the hardwood timber supply chain from our woodlands. At the moment nearly 80% of all timber products used in Britain come from abroad.
