Import firewood into England, Scotland or Wales

Back to News

Find out how to import firewood, such as logs and kindling, into England, Scotland and Wales (Great Britain).

You must notify the Forestry Commission if you, your agent or broker plan to import non-regulated solid fuel wood into England, Scotland or Wales.

This helps prevent harmful tree and forestry pests and diseases being introduced.

Solid fuel wood (firewood) includes:

  • logs
  • kindling
  • twigs
  • billets
  • faggots

You, your agent or broker must make sure any regulate or non-regulated firewood meets import requirements in England, Scotland and Wales (Great Britain) before it’s exported.

The Forestry Commission will decide if there’s a risk that your firewood could introduce harmful tree pests or diseases into the UK. They may inspect your consignment before allowing it to cross the border.
