With the rising awareness of the environmental impact of wood-burning appliances, including log burners, it’s essential to ensure that the wood you use is clean, efficient, and sustainable. We’re pleased to say that Evoke Tree Services Limited are proud recipients of the “Ready to Burn” certificate. In this blog, we’ll explore what the Ready to Burn certificate is, why bring awarded it matters to us, and how it benefits both you and the environment.
What Is a Ready to Burn Certificate?
The Ready to Burn certificate is a certification that guarantees the quality of firewood intended for use in wood-burning appliances, such as log burners, stoves, and fireplaces. It certifies that the firewood has been properly seasoned, has low moisture content, and meets the necessary standards for cleaner, more efficient burning.
Why Does It Matter?
The primary reason for using Ready to Burn-certified firewood is to ensure cleaner combustion. Wood with high moisture content produces more smoke, creosote, and air pollutants. By using well-seasoned, low-moisture firewood, you reduce emissions, creating a healthier indoor and outdoor environment.
Dry, well-seasoned firewood burns more efficiently, providing more heat and requiring less wood for the same level of warmth. This, in turn, helps you save on fuel costs and reduces your carbon footprint.
Using properly seasoned wood extends the life of your wood-burning appliance. Low-moisture firewood produces less creosote buildup, which can damage the chimney and stovepipe, and reduces the risk of chimney fires.
By using Ready to Burn-certified wood, you’re making an environmentally responsible choice. Reduced emissions and fewer trees cut down for fuel wood contribute to a healthier, more sustainable planet.
How to Identify Ready to Burn-Certified Wood:
Look for the Label: Firewood suppliers or retailers selling certified wood should display the “Ready to Burn” label or logo on their products. This label indicates that the firewood has met the necessary standards for low moisture content and proper seasoning. Reputable suppliers like ourselves should be happy to provide this documentation.
As the environmental impact of wood-burning appliances comes under increased scrutiny, using Ready to Burn-certified firewood is a proactive step towards reducing emissions, saving money, and preserving the longevity of your wood-burning equipment. When you choose firewood with the Ready to Burn certificate, you’re not only investing in a cleaner and more efficient burning experience but also playing your part in promoting a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to heating your home. So, next time you stock up on firewood for your log burner, be sure to look for the Ready to Burn label and enjoy the benefits it brings to both your home and the environment.
