As well as providing a place for wildlife and recreation, woodlands can be a source of renewable products. These can generate employment and help the local economy. 
 

We are exploring ways to make the most from our wooden forest resource whether it be a piece of fine furniture or a fuel.

 

Wood as a fuel is seeing a renaissance with increasing fossil fuel prices and the launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive or RHI. The Renewable Heat Incentive provides an index linked income stream for 20 years for installing and using a modern, clean burning, biomass boiler.

 

More information on the government's Renewable Heat Incentive can be found at www.decc.gov.uk/rhi.
