OVER 20,000 CUSTOMERS
When buying logs for your wood burning stove, the two most significant factors which affect the heat output and how long they burn are the moisture content and wood species.
Our company was founded May 2015 in response to the lack of dry, quality hardwood logs for sale nationwide.
With a focus on quality and our dedicated day delivery service to match, we now supply over 20,000 customers each year across the UK and were privileged this year to have our efforts recognised with an invitation to be included within The Parliamentary Review as Best Practice Representatives for our industry.
Typically firewood for sale locally from traditional sellers who dry their logs naturally outdoors require another few years to sufficiently dry before being ready to burn, resulting in miserable fires that smoulder and produce very little heat.
Sadly this is common across the whole of the country, and we find the vast majority of customers turn to us after being sold seasoned or fresh, wet logs from local suppliers who simply aren’t able to keep up with demand.
Fully automatic kilns and carefully managed drying cycles ensure consistently dried logs
With modern kilns logs can be dried in days; self-feeding boilers keep temperatures steady within the kilns, and by monitoring humidity levels in real-time with drying programmes for each specific species, we can ensure your logs are always thoroughly dried and ready to burn.
Our logs are Woodsure Approved
Continuing our efforts in best practices, all of our kiln dried logs are tested and certified below 20% moisture by Woodsure – the division of HETAS responsible for ensuring consumer safety and awareness within the wood fuel industry.
Which species should you choose?
Our Birch, Ash and Oak logs are dense kiln dried hardwood logs from slow growing deciduous trees, providing significantly longer burn times than softwoods.
We recommend choosing the species which best suits your daily usage – listed below in order of density.
- Economy Hardwoods – a various mixture of hardwoods that burn well but are more readily available than Ash or Oak, making this option a great economy choice. This option may include 1-4 different hardwood species depending on availability
- Birch – Recommended for modern stoves. We strongly suggest Birch if you own a modern stove with an air control vent and plan on burning for 2-3 hours in the evening and at the weekend. Birch provides instant heat that warms your home quicker, beautiful lively flames and is by far the easiest hardwood to use; simply reduce the airflow for a longer sustained fire
- Ash – A popular species that offers longer burn times and is relatively easy to use. We recommend ash if you are using your stove for 4-5 hours per day
- Oak – We recommend Oak if you use your stove intensively throughout the day, as it will allow you to enjoy an extremely prolonged burn compared to ash due to its density, however will require more effort to light and generally burn at a lower temperature
- Hornbeam – With a slightly greater density than oak, hornbeam is an excellent alternative to oak and due to the extensive drying times we use for hornbeam, a great option to experiment with if ash is your normal choice of logs
