Seasoned Logs in Beckwithshaw & Hampsthwaite
Our seasoned logs have been produced as a result of an extensive six month seasoning process. Timber contains microscopic tubes that, when first felled, contain a significant amount of water, which adds weight to the log and makes it more difficult to burn.
During our seasoning process the logs are stored in a specially designed warehouse which maximises the natural movement of air in order to drive out moisture and water from each log. We can cut the moisture content (mc) of each log down to around 20% of its original amount.
This makes our firewood easier to light, as well as making them burn at higher temperatures, whilst also releasing fewer impurities – important if your log burning fire is located indoors.
