Below are some answers to common questions we get asked about our firewood, if you have a question you can’t find the answer to please don’t hesitate to Contact Us.
Are your logs dry?
We have a purpose built storage facility located at our Headquarters. It features ventillation slats and opens ends to ensure our firewood gets a good airing out. We are situated in an un-sheltered area meaning we get a lot of wind all year round – perfect drying weather. All our our dumpy bags are also ventilated so the whole bag is dry from top to bottom.
What are seasoned logs?
When we refer to seasoned logs we are talking about a period of time they have been left to dry from being cut. The actual length of time may vary as we always use the moisture content of our logs as a measure of when they have been correctly seasoned.
What’s the difference between kiln dried and air dried logs?
Kiln dried as the name suggests are logs that have been dried out using a kiln or other heat source. Our logs are all air dried this takes longer but we believe it delivers a better burning log, and we have ample space to air dry logs at our facility.
What is the moisture content of your logs?
Our logs are air dried in our log stores until the moisture content of the wood is between 0% – 20%.
What sizes and shapes are your logs?
Most of our logs are split logs 3 to 6 inches wide and between 8 to 10 inches long.
What type of wood are your logs?
Our hardwood logs are cut from oak, birch, ash, beech, sycamore and alder. Our softwood logs are cut from pine.
What’s the difference between burning hardwood and softwood logs?
Hard wood logs are longer burning and they don’t spit, which makes them ideal for open fires. If you use softwood logs on an open fire we advise using a fireguard to catch any sparks that may spit out.
Soft wood logs around 30% cheaper than hardwood logs, and are perfect for wood burners, the sap and resin content of softwood logs (when properly dried) help to make softwood logs burn hotter and easier than hardwood logs. Many customers use softwood logs to get the fire started, before adding hardwood logs.
Why do you use split logs?
Split logs tend to catch and burn better than rounds.
