Question for European Scandinavian firewood suppliers

Recommended Posts

I am interested to know if European ,Scandinavian  suppliers of  firewood to the general public, are governed by government/EU regulations , that stipulate "the moisture content of the wood you supply must not be more than 20%" , or whatever moisture content is stated in your particular country.  I ask as from May1st 2021,in the UK new regulations came in stating  " the moisture content of  loads of logs/firewood of 1.6 cu mtr  or under must be 20% or under,and loads over 2cu mtr can be over 20% as long as one gives the customer instructions on how to season it.

Although the UK is no longer part of the EU, I am just interested in   regulations that may effect you in your particular country.  Many thanks

I downloaded the "Firewood Production Manual" (published 2008)   a time ago ,  off the internet .  Some interesting graphs in their about  seasoning times  for wood . Ok may be a bit theoretical but the principles give food for thought.  The manual is in English although it was obviously  published in one of the Scandinavian countries.
