BUYING GUIDE

Should I buy by weight or volume?

We sell logs by volume rather than weight.  The weight of logs varies depending on their moisture content and species, so if you are buying by weight you could just be paying for water.

Please note that all our logs are supplied loose filled, be it in nets, bulk bags or trailer loads.

How much firewood do I need?

Customers often ask how much wood that they should buy for the winter.  This depends on lots of factors including the size of your stove, the size of your house, how often you light the fire etc.

As an approximate guide, a small log burner (approx. 5 kilowatt stove) used in the evenings and at weekends would probably use 2-4 cubic metres through the colder months. Larger stoves and those who rely on logs for all their heating can use between 6 and 18 cubic metres.

We have lots of wood in stock, so if in doubt you can buy a small load and have another load delivered later or keep the wood dry and it will be ready for next winter.

Should I buy different types of wood if I have an open fire?

Any timber can spit, so you should always use a fire guard, but some species are more prone to spitting than others.  If you have an open fire, please purchase the premium logs.  These are species which have a lower risk of spitting.
