Seasoned Mixed Firewood Logs
What we sell
We sell logs 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 or pine. Please choose quantity from half cubic meter drop down.
We are audited by ReadytoBurn and accredited to sell both seasoned and part seasoned logs. If you chose to buy part seasoned these are cheaper and you can continue to season these at home. We will supply the necessary guidance and inform you of the current moisture content when we deliver.
If you chose ready to burn these logs are certified to have a moisture content of less than 20%.
Delivery to a WF postcode is included. We will cancel any other orders unless you have called us to check we can accommodate.
VAT is charged at the reduced fuel rate of 5% and also included.
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 it cheaper. However it doesn't give off as much heat BTU as larch or the hardwoods.
Oak is one of the best firewood but it needs a long time to season because of its density. It burns slowly and is long lasting. Oak can be found throughout the United Kingdom and is in very high demand and is therefore expensive. Because of its density, oak produces a small flame and is very slow burn, it is best when seasoned for a minimum of two years. It also requires continuous high heat to get it burning well. It is therefore best mixed with lighter woods.
Birch produces good heat output and burns very bright and hot, meaning that it is a great fire starter. Silver birch are common and easy to spot making great firewood. It is a softer wood, meaning that it is an excellent fire-starter because it burns very quickly. Birch burns easily and can be even be burnt unseasoned. It is best mixed with a slower burning wood such as Oak. Birch bark also makes an excellent fire-lighter and the perfect logs for getting your fire roaring, easily lit burning quickly with a hot flame.
Ash is widely accepted by many to be one of best woods for burning, Ash produces a steady flame and good heat output and is one of the most abundant species in the United Kingdom. Ash has a low moisture content even when green, but like all wood is best when seasoned. Gives a good heat output, a good flame and burns slowly, so for a long time. Ash is known for splitting very easily and for having a low moisture content making it relatively quick to season 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 200 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 certified air dried logs to be below an average moisture content of 20% and they are usually well below.
For part seasoned logs we are required to supply the Government notice which is in bold below.
- requires us to sell 2 cubic meters or more,
- also requires us to pass on their notice to you.
Our part seasoned logs are also 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 the air drying process.
Please note the law and my requirement to supply you with this notice when selling part seasoned logs:
“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.”
