Seasoning





Product Details

Seasoning is the most important factor in producing good firewood logs. This is done within a week in the case of our kiln-dried logs but is more expensive due to the cost of producing the high temperatures required in the kilns.

With our latest air drying process on the other hand cut trees are now fully seasoned naturally using only sun and wind (no more kilns producing massive amounts of CO2) in our new polytunnel stores where we have seen the overall moisture content down as low as 15-20% before being processed into cut logs resulting in same quality of log as the kiln-dried logs.

The popularity of our air-dried logs is highlighted by a doubling of sales year on year. The best time to stock up for the winter on air-dried logs is in June and July each year when we have our log sale.

Never buy logs by weight alone. Always consider the moisture content and volume as well otherwise you are paying good money just for water and logs that will not burn well.

Our giant bag of logs would weigh over 600 kilos if filled with unseasoned logs. Our seasoning and drying process reduces this weight to as low as 190 kilos at best, but the volume remains the same.
