Why Buy Our Logs?
Why Buy Our Logs? All our wood is locally sourced from sustainable sites, thus keeping our carbon footprint through transportation to a minimum. The only hardwoods we use are Oak, Ash, Beech and Birch, as they are denser and heavier than softwoods, providing a higher calorific value and longer burn time. However, for those that request softwood we do supply this too as when dried to the same moisture content, it provides the same calorific value but you may need twice as much of it as it is significantly less dense and lighter.
Your log bag whether hardwood or softwood is seasoned and dried to sub 20% moisture to give the most effective burn in the log burner, fire or biomass boiler.
Drier wood gives more heat and few residues, meaning you do not have to clean out your log burner quite so much and the glass stays clear so you can enjoy the fire. It does not matter how logs are dried, it is all about the moisture content within the wood, the lower the better.
All our log products are sold by volume, this is because wet logs weigh so much more and burn with minimal heat, very little flame and tar up your log burners, boilers and biomass boilers. Buy our Woodsure accredited ready to burn logs to ensure a clean and minimal value burn.

All our firewood is locally sourced and is both traceable and sustainable – we do not import wood and our logs are 100% ‘Ready to Burn’ British firewood.
What is Ready to Burn? The “Ready to Burn” label shows logs are ready for use as wood fuel. These logs burn more efficiently than unseasoned, green wood and reduce environmental impact.
Ready to burn firewood has a moisture content of 20% or less; using it in place of wet wood fuel is proven to reduce the levels of emissions in the air we breathe.
This is better for your appliance and chimney and reduces maintenance and fuel costs.
Burning dry wood instead of wet wood is part of the solution to reduce the impact on our envirionment.
