What we sell

We sell a minimum of 2 cu meter in large 'ventilated' 0.5 cu meter bags, these are the 80 x 80 cm bags. Logs are air seasoned containing a mixture of Larch, Sitka, Ash, Beech, Birch or Oak. Please choose quantity (min. 4) from half cubic meter drop down.

Delivery to a WF postcode is included along with VAT at the reduced fuel rate of 5%.

Larch logs although a soft wood are the perfect option for wood burning or multi-fuel stoves. These logs are easily lit and give off a really good heat often higher than many hardwoods making Larch a great firewood however it is prone to spit so not ideal for open fires but a highly recommended product for all stoves. 

Sitka spruce is a relatively abundant softwood making is cheaper. However it doesn't give off as much heat BTU as larch or the hardwoods.

Ash produces a steady flame in fires with a good heat and burns well even when green. It will burn successfully on its own, so does not need to be burned in a mix of different species. Perfect wood for a wood burning stove or wood burner too. Traditionally said to be the best wood for burning.

Oak is the slowest wood to season and ideally should be seasoned for a minimum of two years. It is a high density wood and is slow to burn as firewood and is best used in a mix of faster-burning logs. This wood can help to keep the fire burning at night if required.

Birch is a great firewood for burning on a wood burner, stove or in an open fire. This wood produces a good heat, although it burns relatively quickly so it’s best to use it in a mix of slower-burning woods, such as elm or oak. Birch will burn unseasoned although the sap can cause a build up of deposits in the flue so please take care to burn seasoned wood. 

Beech is also a fantastic wood for burning although it has a high water content so needs to be dried well; it may take three years before use. It does not need to be burned in a mix and can be burned in a wood burning stove too.

What we sell

Our bulk bags, measure 80 x 80 x 80cm and contain 0.512 cubic meters. These are our largest bags, offering a large quantity of logs and real value for money. They contain on average about 350 kilogram of dry wood but you are buying volume not weight.


Just like our trees we are offering a great value quality product. We guarantee our air dried logs to be below an average moisture content of 25% and they are usually well below however please note as we are not members of a 'Ready to Burn' scheme and hence we are required to supply the Government notice which is in bold below.

It :

  1. requires us to sell 2 cubic meters or more,
  2. also requires us to pass on their notice to you.

Our well seasoned logs are all cut between 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) in length making them perfect for stacking but they may have a moisture content above 20% so please store in a well ventilated place to continue their air drying process.

The Law

Please note the law and my requirement to supply you with this notice including my requirement  to sell 2 cubic meters as a minimum:

“This wood is not suitable for burning until it has been dried. You should not burn wood until it has a moisture content of 20% or less.

“Wet wood contains moisture which creates smoke and harmful particulates when burnt. As well as being harmful to your health and the environment, this can damage your stove and chimney and is an inefficient way to heat your home. Dry it in a sunny, well-aired space for at least two years, keeping rain off in the winter.

“Radial cracks and bark that comes off easily suggests wood that is ready for burning. Test the wood when you think it is ready for burning, ideally with a moisture meter. First calibrate the meter and then measure a freshly split surface to get the best reading.”
