ABSTRACT
The article explains the reasons to consider in replacing oil boilers with biomass systems and using a small area of land to self-supply wood fuel. Disadvantages of installing a log boiler are cited, including a need for nine tonnes a year of air-dried logs. It cites the challenge posed by turning plantations into logs, particularly with short-rotation coppice (SRC). It is also noted that prices of woodfuel are more stable than those of oil.
