Building a successful and sustainable woodfuel partnership, case study

Want to set up a woodfuel partnership? read how one group has managed just that...

We hear a great deal about the potential of a growing woodfuel market to deliver multiple benefits: low-carbon, renewable energy, a boost for rural business, and biodiversity. But does the reality live up to the promises? One partnership in the Chilterns is demonstrating how it can.

At Penn Wood, the Woodland Trust is aiming to restore the plantation by the gradual removal of conifers and is working with a local biomass energy company, producing woodfuel for the local community.
