Wood pellets are a completely renewable source of fuel. As long as you are purchasing from a reputable supplier you can be assured that the wood is sourced from sustainable areas.
All the wood pellets we supply are created using either recycled wood, from waste sawdust etc, or virgin wood – carefully sourced from sensibly managed woodlands.
When burnt, the CO2 emitted by wood pellets is the same amount of CO2 that has been absorbed from the atmosphere during the life cycle of the tree. There is therefore no net release of CO2 into the atmosphere. Providing another tree is planted to replace the one burnt then the cycle can continue.
Although the energy needed for planting, processing and transporting wood pellets need to be taken into account, replacing fossil fuels with pellets will reduce CO2 by up to 90%.
To ensure that all the trees felled to produce the wood pellets are replaced, we source our fuel from areas that are licensed by the Forestry Commission. This governing body make sure that harvested areas are re-stocked and subsequently maintained.
As part of our commitment to renewability, we’ll continue to only source our virgin wood pellets from correctly managed woodlands. This will help us dramatically reduce CO2 emissions and protect our environment whilst continuing to provide you with high quality pellets to heat your home.
