Hello
Anyone know a good source of firewood in/around Lewes please? Needs to be dry as anything remotely damp won't burn in our stove.
Thanks

If a tree is left to fall and rot naturally, the decay produces as much co2 as burning it. That is a proven fact. Discuss?

Pete...Most hard woods that are sold as logs or firewood are seasoned and dried for at least a year, some longer. They don't just chop em down and burn em...although it's possible with Ash.

Managing woodland - ie coppicing, felling, replanting and burning - is carbon neutral, surely? A growing tree acts as a carbon reservoir which is released when it's burnt? It's certainly a good thing for the environment if woodland becomes economically viable rather than something which has to be turned into a housing estate to be profitable. Taken on balance, it's got to be better than plundering the environment for fossil fuels by fracking and tar sands, for instance.

SQ, I can't disagree with you except in that logging can only ever be a very, very minor part of the whole energy picture and furthermore, because of the cost of installation and the type of house it is suitable for, it is only available for the energy rich.

Of course, Queequeg. I use wood as a supplement to gas central heating and in the winter it's extremely valuable, but I absolutely take the point that only a minority can use it. That said, in the three winters since I've had it I would guess the installation is well on the way to paying for itself, compared to the cost of heating the house with gas through those very cold winters we've had. And anything which help woodland become economically viable, even if it's a tiny part of the overall picture, must be welcomed, surely?

I am sure I saw (no pun intended) sacks of off cuts for sale in Wenban Smiths, if that's any help. The words 'for sale' may put you off !

And there you've hit the nail on the head Old Mayor. Unless you have a free supply of wood it's all a load of dirty aggro to save f. Uck all money wise. Though being a trendy yogurt knitter counts for a lot in this town.

Carbon neutral? Carbon dioxide is a very tiny part of the atmosphere and that generated by humans a tiny part of that, a few millionths,in fact. The whole scam is about revenue collection.
