Z-NET Uralla News
Uralla has our first “accredited” sustainable firewood business! One of our progressive firewood collectors has now completed the Z-NET training on how to assess the amount of wood that can sustainably be collected from a particular type of woodland. The inaugural training event was held at Lana, in an area of box woodland. As well as a commercial firewood supplier in Uralla, a number of people who collect their own wood joined in to learn how to do a rapid assessment of how much dead wood is on the ground. This is compared to a benchmark for the woodland type, to estimate what proportion of wood can be harvested with minimal environmental impact. If you would like to order sustainable wood, or find out more about becoming accredited yourself, check out our website at www.zneturalla.org.au under the firewood tab. Z-NET is constantly getting enquiries on where sustainable firewood can be bought – the free accreditation training is a great opportunity for wood suppliers to meet this strong demand.
