The importance of using seasoned Firewood logs
Firewood logs and hardwood logs are logs that have been seasoned for a period of time which makes them ideal for burning on open fires, stoves, fireplaces and chimeneas. Firewood logs can come for a variety of different trees all of which are great for use on real wood fires.
Typical firewood logs and hardwood logs include logs from beech trees, Oak, Silver Birch and Ash trees. Many companies that sell firewood logs will harvest the logs from managed sustainable forests to ensure that more trees are planted for each one that is cut down. Ideally firewood logs should be seasoned for around 2 years to make them ideal for burning and this ensures they are dry and the sap has dried up in the logs. This makes the logs burn longer and produce more heat without spitting and hissing.
Often people will use any wood they find and wood from trees they cut down in their own garden to burn on fires and stoves but this is unlikely to be seasoned and will probably be wet. Using unseasoned wood will not only produce poor heating results and short burn times but it can also damage your chimney and mean your chimney will need cleaning more often and your flue pipe may get damaged. Using the correct types of firewood logs and hardwood logs is important and when you purchase a fire you should seek advice from the retailer on the best type of logs to use and the best suppliers to purchase seasoned hardwood logs from.
Companies that sell firewood logs and hardwood logs tend to sell them in standard 8 inch or 10 inch pieces. Some companies may be able to supply smaller or larger pieces on request. Firewood logs tend to be sold in bulk quantities and one large bag of around one cubic meter could last you all winter depending on how many fires you have. As well as selling firewood logs and hardwood logs most log suppliers will also sell kindling which is essential to get a real fire started. Good quality kindling is just as important as good quality firewood logs so you are best to purchase both from the same reputable supplier.
