‘Wood for All’ was a community project which aimed to unlock the potential of undermanaged woodlands in the Stirling region.
We helped bring together like-minded communities and landowners, providing access to local sources of wood fuel, and opportunities for woodland skill building and sharing.
Throughout the project we were involved with hosting woodland events, running training days, and encouraging and supporting the development of local wood fuel hubs.
Set up in 2012, after receiving funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund, Wood for All aimed to reduce the region’s CO2 emissions by making wood heating systems more accessible to home owners.
Our energy coordinators offered free home assessments and impartial advice on the suitability of wood fuel biomass boilers, the funding available, and the various considerations.Wood fuel can offer significant savings, both financially and environmentally, when compared with carbon-heavy fossil fuels.
Wood for All was run by Transition Stirling, with funding from the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
