What are your needs?

Multi fuel stoves

Stove built with a grate in the bottom of the firebox, which allows you to burn coal as well as wood. This is because coal requires a supply of air to come from beneath, while wood burns best on a bed of ash, meaning dedicated wood burning stoves will not have this grate. 

Wood burning stoves

Stoves that have been designed specifically for burning wood. Generally speaking wood burning stoves will burn wood with more efficiency than a multi-fuel stove will, although this is not always the case.

As they grow trees absorb carbon dioxide from the air and use the energy from the sun and water build themselves carbohydrate. When we fell the trees and after letting them season, we burn them for fuel.
