Get all the documents to make sure that your firewood is compliant and ecologically friendly
Everywhere there are owners of woods who are harvesting whatever is possible to get some money. They are normally cheaper but don't care too much about the next generation and cannot produce the required documents to prove sustainability (RHI / BSL).
LFS supplies all the details on the invoice so you will never conflict with HMRC, Ofgem (RHI) or other authorities. And the good thing is knowing that by the firewood you burn, the forests in Aberdeenshire and Moray are not negatively affected and will continue to be places to spend your leisure time.
The BSL is defined as a list of four fuel types: firewood, chip, pellets and briquettes. The BSL is not a list of raw materials. Raw materials are set to undergo further processing (e.g. cutting, drying, chipping) before they are used in a boiler. A fuel is something that will not undergo any further processing before it is used in a boiler.
When somebody needs a BSL Authorisation Number the logs need to be seasoned
When somebody is asking for Firewood it has to be seasoned
When somebody delivers green logs with BSL Authorisation Number to you, you could bring your RHI-eligibility in danger.
