Description

Our firewood is 100% sustainable and all from our farm here between Bristol and Bath. We air season the logs in our weatherproof barn to ensure the wood is under 20% moisture content and is ready to use by our customers straight away. We are committed to providing guaranteed top quality firewood, and we believe this can only be done by only selling wood we harvest and dry ourselves. Because of this, we only have a limited supply of wood that we supply to regular customers from September to February each year.
As a family we have done everything from plant the woods, to managing the woodland to be diverse and turn into sustainable woodland with diversity and wildlife numbers as the priority. We fell trees only to manage the woodlands health and never just to sell wood. the longevity of the woodland and everything that lives within it is always at the forefront of our thoughts. Once felled, we cut and split the wood to sell as timber for furniture production and secondly as wood-fuel.
Our firewood is a maximum of 12inch long and comes as a variety of split logs, round logs.
Our firewood is ideal for both open log fires and wood-burners. The logs are almost solely Ash, which is one of the best woods for a steady fire and good heat, Most people rate Ash as one of the best firewood’s to burn on a log burner, with a high calorific value vs low cost.

For a roaring smoke free fire that keeps you snug for hours, here are some tips;

 

1) only burn fully seasoned ready to burn logs! After all, you can’t burn water! And if you try to burn wet logs your fire will spit and you’ll have a house full of smoke.

 

Many people try and burn logs they’ve cut themselves, but if they’ve not allowed enough time for the logs to season, the results can be quite disappointing. Our logs are fully seasoned and ready to burn with less than 20% moisture content – so you know our logs and your wood burner will give you the roaring fire you always wanted!

 

2) light my fire! The easiest and quickest way to get instant heat from your wood burning stove is to light it using firelighters (or paper and cardboard) and dry kindling, this can be bought from multiple sources, or made up from scrap softwood, or end of life pallets etc. When you first light your stove make sure the air vents are fully open – but always follow the guidance supplied in your stove user manuals!

 

3) keep my fire burning for hours! For a fire that burns for longer get your fire roaring hot with softwood kindling/logs together with hardwood logs – making sure they’re all fully seasoned and ready to burn of course! Softwood gets your fire blazing within minutes, and once the hardwood gets going, your fire can burn constantly for hours

 

4) burn air-dried logs! Some folk believe kiln-dried logs are better to burn than naturally air-dried firewood like what we supply. Actually, it’s more efficient to burn air-dried logs because the wood contains volatile esters that are needed to give your fire energy. Oven-baked logs loose this vital source of energy when they’re dried out in the kiln – meaning your fire will burn down quicker! It’s all a matter of personal choice though, and there’s no right or wrong, but do be aware kiln dried logs burn away a lot quicker and you’ll go though them very rapidly.

 

5) keep our logs dry! To lower the moisture content even further and prevent your logs from getting wet shield them from the rain and keep them off the ground

 

TOP TIP! Stack your logs in a lattice (alternate directions) as the spacing allows for
better air circulation to help lower the moisture content even further!

 

***Remember, never ever burn unseasoned logs!***

 

6) burn wood on ash – Wood actually burns best on a bed of ash. So when you think your stove needs cleaning don’t empty it out completely. Leave up to 2 inches of ash from the base of your stove – but become familiar with your wood burning appliance to see what gives you the best results. Use a shovel and metal bucket to remove excess ash when it gets too high.

 

7) buy wood by volume not weight – by law log suppliers aren’t permitted to sell firewood by weight because wood contains moisture.

 

Think of it this way. A bag of unseasoned logs weighs twice as much as a bag of seasoned ready to burn logs. Instead, look at the size of the bag and how much is in it, rather than picking it up and weighing it.

 

Our bulk bags of logs are approx. 1m3. The difference with our ‘Builders bags’ of logs, is our customers tell us there are more logs in our nets than anywhere else! We fill them ’til they’re full!

 

8) not keep adding more logs – If you keep adding logs to an already roaring fire you can reduce your stove’s burning efficiency by as much as 15%! This is because cool air gets in each time you open the stove door and new wood needs to heat up before it burns – which is where you lose the burning efficiency.

 

The best time to add more logs to a fire that’s already lit is allow it to burn down to a bed of embers before adding any more.

 

10) burn safely and efficiently! Wood is the cleanest fuel around – but pollutants can be produced if it’s not burnt efficiently. To avoid problems you should:

  • always burn fully seasoned wood
  • have a stove professionally fitted by a HETAS registered stove fitter
  • sweep your chimney at least once a year
  • install a carbon monoxide detector (see the dangers of carbon monoxide)
  • never burn rubbish, plastics, glossy paper, polystyrene or painted/treated wood or plywood.
  • store wood in a covered building outside and have it stacked off the ground
