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 itís exported.

The Forestry Commission will decide if thereís 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.
