We want to plant trees for woodfuel

Planting trees is a wonderful way of improving not only today’s environment but also providing woodfuel for the future.  Funding for tree planting is available from various sources.  However not all trees will thrive in all locations, future climate change needs to be taken into account, you will want to consider how to manage the trees in the future (for instance for woodfuel and coppice products as well as wildlife), and the ash dieback crisis has highlighted the importance of sourcing seedlings locally and from a reputable grower.
