Background information and definitions
Firewood is an important fuel for heating and cooking in some homes and communities. However, wood that may be collected as firewood, such as from fallen trees, may provide an important element of the habitat for some forest floor species. This is most likely to be the case in forests that have been least affected by management. Thus, collection of firewood may be controlled in remnant native forests and woodland to benefit woodland biodiversity, including mammals.
