No logs are released for general sale until moisture content is less than 20%. We only use the best hardwoods such as - Oak, Beech, Sycamore, Ash, Maple, Birch, Cherry, Apple and all timber is locally sourced recycled hardwoods from residential tree surgery arisings. We don’t contribute towards destructive and invasive forestry clearance operations. We deliver dry, ready to burn logs to your doorstep!

What makes a great log?

There are 2 main factors which determine the amount of heat released (calorific value) from a log:

1. Moisture content

This has by far the biggest effect on the calorific value of a log. If the moisture content is high the heat will be lost as steam instead of radiating outwards and heating the room.

2. Wood density

The higher the wood density, the more kilowatt hours of heat (kWh) produced!.
