Use them to decorate the inside of your stove .

Be sure to put some paper and kindling under them for the authentic look 👍

Or just take the Cornish approach and give it all a DGI!
 
There are many hereabouts that still haven’t bothered with basics like vehicle RFL, MoT test & insurance. 
 
This creature turned up on site last week to remove timber. Nothing to do with me - my work was done! Private arrangement between landowner and local ‘log merchant.’
 
Every stick fell off 4 times before he got them all onboard and then he drove off through Callington on the public highway!
 
I felt sorry for the dog!

Moving on to 2022 ,  do any of you know if the  regulations for supplying firewood are changing from May 2022.

No doubt the "Firewood  Gestapo",  Wood Sure , would like things to change so the organisation can justify their own existence to the Government department they work /are contracted to , self preservation while others drown comes to mind !!!

That legislation is already passed, so not new regulations really but just the regulations coming into force for smaller producers.

If you take any notice of course.....

So to be clear on this,we Must register with Woodsure to be legal?

or can we still sell small lots of firewood under 20% without registering with them?

You must register in England unless you sell more than 2cube in one go.

Thanks for your sensible replies, much appreciated . Makes a change from the gibberish  replies that some put on these forums, on such serious matters that may mean ,we  can stay  in business creating employment for someone  ,or meaning we have to close down and thereby  doing someone out of a job. Thanks again.

Is not 2 cubic metres of wood rather a lot?? What would it weigh??

 

How will they define 2 metres anyway??

 

what is to stop you saying it was 2 metres before you cut it up?? What does the law say about that??

 

john..

2 cube won't be more than a ton of weight, whatever the wood. The logic is if you're buying that amount you'll probably have the space for seasoning (not that there's much common sense in these regulations).

 

The rules apply to the delivery that's taken to the customer.

 

Being in Wales I've been avoiding signing up, on principal as much as anything, but woodsure have taken over the RHI scheme and everyone on that will have to register from this April so no choice now unfortunately. All part of the fun of selling firewood. 😉
