|Natural carbon capture:
Defra Approved Stoves are proven to burn with minimal emissions. Carbon di-oxide emissions from woodburning are a tiny proportion of those for other fuels and are only releasing the carbon captured by the growing tree (see the schematic below). This, in turn is re-captured by the trees planted to replace felled trees and the whole cycle starts over again.........
The Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) promotes environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial, and economically viable management of the world's forests.
Environmentally appropriate forest management ensures that the harvest of timber and non-timber products maintains the forest's biodiversity, productivity and ecological processes.
Socially beneficial forest management helps both local people and society at large to enjoy long term benefits and also provides strong incentives to local people to sustain the forest resources and adhere to long-term management plans.
