Wood that it were so sim­ple

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IT was a very good ar­ti­cle by John Wright on wood fuel (‘The slow burn’, Novem­ber 16), but I did won­der what re­ac­tion I would get from our usual sup­plier if I asked for a cer­tain calorific value and water con­tent, let alone spec­i­fied the type of wood I wanted—i think the re­ply would be ‘it’s just logs, mate’.

One as­pect that re­ceived only pass­ing ref­er­ence was aroma. Ten years ago, when ap­ple or­chards around us here in Ox­ford­shire were be­ing grubbed up with fund­ing from the EU, ap­ple wood was par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar for this rea­son. Dr David A. Har­ris, Ox­ford­shire
