Kiln Dried Firewood
Choosing the right firewood

It is fundamental that you use ‘Kiln Dried Firewood’ in your woodburning stove. Part seasoned firewood can be burnt, but you must ensure it has had enough time to dry. Never burn wet wood in your log burner as it will leave dangerous deposits in your appliance and flue.

Wood burning stoves

Burning wet wood will be detrimental to your stove and flu. Deposits of tar will start to cling to your appliance and build up over a period. This will put you at risk of flu fire.
The quality of the wood you burn is essential to the health of your appliance. We recommend that you only burn firewood that has a moisture content below 20%.

Burning efficiently

It’s important that you burn wood efficiently. This mean that if you buy Kiln Dried Firewood you will get the maximum amount of heat per log that is bought. If you are burning wet wood, this means that you are boiling off excess water from each log before it produces any heat. It may be cheaper to buy but not cheaper in the long run.

How to tell if your wood has a low moisture content?

There are a couple of ways you can determine that you wood has a low moisture content. Firstly, the weight. If your logs are heavy, it’s likely your firewood is holding too much moisture.
If your logs appear cracked, this is also a good indication that they are dry.
You can also tell if your firewood is letting off a lot of smoke and blackening your stove glass. All signs that your wood is holding too much moisture.
The easiest way would be to purchase a moisture meter, which will give you a more accurate reading.

Part Seasoned Logs

The moisture content in seasoned logs will differ dramatically. It is essential that you allow seasoned logs to dry in a well ventilated area before burning for at least 6 months from purchase. This will allow the moisture level your logs to get down to an acceptable level. Remember, below 20% is the ideal.

Log Size

We supply many different log sizes. Our Kiln dried logs come in 8 Inch and 10 Inch. Our part seasoned firewood comes in sizes ranging from 8 inch to 18 Inch. We also have some 6 Inch softwood for customers who have small fires and specially split cooking woods for Outdoor or Pizza ovens.

Firewood species

We have several species of wood available. All have distinctive characteristics.
Kiln dried ash hardwood – Our kiln dried ash is one of our most popular and gives a long lasting burn with a high heat output. It also has a very pleasing, bright flame effect.
Kiln dried birch hardwood – Birch burns very much like Ash, although it does burn slightly quicker. It is a good burning wood that produces a consistent and long heat output. It has a very bright flame effect.
Kiln dried oak hardwood – Oak is an extremely dense wood and takes a longer period to dry through but in turn creates a great log for burning. Being so dense, it can take a little practice to get the fire started initially. Once you have good base established this firewood can provide a long, steady burn.
Kiln dried mixed hardwoods – We also supply mixed hardwoods, which are a mixture of ash, beach, cherry and oak for those customers who like more variety.
Kiln dried Softwood – Softwood is less dense than hardwood and although you can still get a good heat output, softwood will burn faster, and you will need to re-stock your wood burner more frequently. The benefit of softwood is that it’s easier to light and is suitable for the novice burner.

Firewood Quantities

You can buy firewood from us in Nets, Boot, Barrow and Bulk Bags. Our logs can also be purchased in larger quantities as a Loose load (as much as 4 cubic metres per delivery) or tightly packed into wooden crates. Wooden crates are particularly popular for customers who are short on space and would like their logs to be dropped in a place such as a shed or garage.

Storing your firewood
