If you and your neighbours all burn wood then group bookings can help the environment.

This years firewood

For information on burning this wood please ask when phoning.

The firewood for 2013/14 comprise of mainly ash, birch, beech and hazel with small quantities of other species including southern beech, sycamore and oak.

All of the timber has come from our woodland management work so is helping to sustain local woodland.

 

The importance of seasoning wood

It can not be over-emphasised that the key to a good fire is well seasoned wood. Seasoning only happens with time and dry airy conditions. The water content of freshly cut logs can be as high as 50%, as in the case of Oak, but is more usually 30-40%, with King of Firewoods, Ash, being as low as 25-30% when cut in the winter, which is why it is the only wood which can be burnt green. Well-seasoned firewood will have a moisture content of around 18-20%.

Storage

It is important therefore that once delivered the logs are stored under some sort of cover to keep them dry; ideally this would be a cover only to keep rain off whilst allowing side ventilation. 

Keeping a few days supply (a weeks supply would be better if you have the space) in the house near the fire will reduce the water content to around 14-16 %. This is ideal for a good warm fire.
