Frequently Asked Questions

How should I store my firewood?

In order to get the best out of your firewood it is vital that you store it in the best possible way. It is vital that the logs are stored undercover in a dry area, with good airflow around them to ensure that they don’t absorb moisture from the atmosphere.

Why burn logs?

Do your bit for the environment. Burning logs does produce carbon dioxide however, if a tree is planted in the place of the one used to source your logs the process becomes carbon neutral.

What size are the logs?

On average we process our logs to 10 - 12 inches long as we specialise in catering for log stoves or open fires. If you require a specific log size please call us and we will sort some out for you.

Why should you burn hardwood instead of softwood?

Burning seasoned hardwood has many benefits over softwoods. Firstly Hardwood burns longer than softwood due to hardwoods having a tighter grain. Secondly seasoned hardwood doesn’t spit, so it is better suited for open fires.

This is a difficult one because it depends upon the size of the logs. Our logs are approximately 10-12 inches, are sold by loose volume.
