Is it even legal to burn wood for fuel in most European countries?
If not, or if it is subject to serious regulation, then only criminals will be burning wood. They stole it in the first place, right?
Nothing like a little “hot” merchandise to warm up the ol’ home place.

In Germany, yes. The Germans have the best, nmost efficient way to do it too: http://www.rvharvey.com/kachelofen.htm
I’ve always wanted one. You put in the oven, and wire the floor for electric heat. It’s incredibly warm and cheap. Two logs will heat the whole house for a whole day in the winter.
There are stories of British pensioners buying books in bulk like old encyclopedias to burn for warmth, because it was cheaper than wood and coal.
