New evidence shows wood burning actually:

Harms your wallet: wood burning is almost always more expensive than other forms of heating.
Harms your health: lighting fires in our homes is the largest source of harmful small particulate matter air pollution in the UK.
Harms the planet: wood burning creates more harmful CO2 emissions compared to other forms of heating and we cannot reproduce trees fast enough to offset the CO2 emitted by burning wood.
This page contains information and resources for local authorities, organisations and campaigners that want to talk to their communities about this topic. To find out more about how wood burning impacts you directly, visit the Clean Air Hub.
