Trees down after Storm Ciara? Then see the positive...you've just been handed natural, local and free fuel - just get chopping. We see them everywhere, especially after storms, dead tree branches scattered along roadsides or lying in green areas, but we don’t seem to notice their value as a fuel. Why not gather these up? Not only will you be tidying up your locality,you’ll be collecting free firewood for the winter ahead.
Obviously, if the branches are lying on private property then you need to get permission to gather them. These are going to be particularly plentiful after a storm so be on the lookout! And if a tree does fall on your own property, then we recommend planting a new one to replace it - now that's real renewable fuel.
