Moisture content is very important as unseasoned wood – or wood which has not been dried out properly – can be very inefficient. It uses most of its energy drying out in the fire before releasing any heat into the room, gives off more smoke and releases tars in the chimney which means it will need cleaning more frequently.
Well-seasoned logs will give out twice as much heat as unseasoned ones. We cut our logs and then store them to season naturally for over 12 months before selling them. With more and more people now using environmentally friendly biomass boilers and wood burning stoves, customers can be assured of a consistently high quality wood fuel supply.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide as they grow, therefore wood fuel is considered carbon neutral. As part of our continuing commitment to the environment.
