FAQ

Why Burn firewood?

Using renewable energy such as firewood from well managed woods or from Arboricultural operations not only reduces carbon emissions particularly when compared to fossil fuel, such as coal or oil, but also helps to improve conditions for wildlife through sustainable land management.

Why should I buy seasoned/Kiln Dried Logs?

The process of seasoning wood ensures that when burned it will be to its full potential. Therefore, moisture content & type of wood are the key factors in the weight, performance & cost of the logs. If the wood is not fully seasoned most of the energy is spent drying the water off instead of generating heat for your home. Furthermore unseasoned wood produces more smoke and creosote, which may glue up your chimney.

Kiln dried logs are dried to an average moisture content of 20% and we recommend them for immediate burning on all wood burning devices.  Kiln dries logs are the ultimate clean burning logs with maximum heat output.

Heated wood releases hydrocarbon gases. When these get hot enough (about 1100 degrees F) they mix with air and catch fire. When hearth or woodstove fires smoulder, unburned gases condense and deposit on the stovepipes and the flue as runny acids and liquid tars that harden into creosote.
Both a cool flue and steam from green or wet wood encourage this condensation.

How should I store my firewood?

Try and store the logs somewhere out of the weather. This can be inside or in a log store, but you can store logs outside if they are stacked and covered properly. To do this stack the logs neatly against a sheltered wall or fence and then cover the top only. This will allow the logs to ‘breath’ and any rain or moisture will quickly evaporate away.

The Firewood Poem

“Beechwood fires are bright and clear
If the logs are kept a year,
Chestnut’s only good they say,
If for logs ’tis laid away.
Make a fire of Elder tree,
Death within your house will be;
But ash new or ash old,
Is fit for a queen with crown of gold

Birch and fir logs burn too fast
Blaze up bright and do not last,
it is by the Irish said
Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.
Elm wood burns like churchyard mould,
E’en the very flames are cold
But ash green or ash brown
Is fit for a queen with golden crown

Poplar gives a bitter smoke,
Fills your eyes and makes you choke,
Apple wood will scent your room
Pear wood smells like flowers in bloom
Oaken logs, if dry and old
keep away the winter’s cold
But ash wet or ash dry
a king shall warm his slippers by.”
