Firewood processing service
With fuel prices rising along with the cost of living in general, many people are turning to more traditional methods when it comes to heating their homes. Popular options include wood burning stoves and open fires.
The idea of logs crackling on an open fire, particularly in winter and at Christmas time, is undeniably attractive. Rather less attractive is the cost of buying the wood to fuel the fire, which is tending to rise as demand increases.
Following the completion of any tree work, including felling and the removal of any dead or damaged boughs, there is often a substantial amount of wood remaining. Here at Acorn Trees we are happy to help our customers make significant savings on fuel by offering a service for splitting wood.
All that is required is some space on the property to store the wood and let it season, which generally takes around 12 months depending on conditions.
The advantages of burning your own wood
Using our wood splitting service to turn branches and boughs from your garden into fuel is much more cost effective way of generating heat in your home during winter.
Using your own wood as fuel means you are not contributing to global deforestation, and the loss of important habitats for wildlife.
It is true that wood burning does emit carbon dioxide, but with the use of efficient wood burning stoves the adverse effects can be significantly reduced. It has been agued that the amounts of carbon absorbed whilst the trees were growing effectively cancels out the amounts emitted during burning.
