Our kiln dried hardwood logs have a moisture content of below 20% making the flame last longer and provide a higher heat output. Kiln dried logs are regarded as the highest quality of fire burning logs due to their long lifespan, increased heat output and steady flame. These logs are most commonly used for stoves and open fires.

The types of hardwood logs we sell are ash, beech, birch & oak and the differences between them are listed below.

Ash Reckoned by many to be one of best woods for burning, it produces a steady flame and good heat output. It can be burnt when green but like all woods, it burns best when dry.
Beech Burns very much like ash, but does not burn well when green.
Birch Produces good heat output but it does burn quickly. It can be burnt unseasoned, however the sap can cause deposits to form in the flue with prolonged use.
Oak Because of its density, oak produces a small flame and very slow burn, it is best when seasoned for a minimum of two years as it is a wood that requires time to season well.
