GOOD REASONS TO BUY OUR LOGS

We are all becoming aware of the environmental damage and of course, the cost of burning kerosene/central heating oil, natural and LPG gas fuels & electric, each of which has escalated in price over the last few years, this has led to growing interest in using wood as a sustainable, renewable, low carbon alternative.
Wood is a major source of heat energy and using kiln dried firewood and being burned efficiently, it produces virtually no smoke.
As trees grow they absorb carbon dioxide (CO2), incorporating the carbon into new growth and returning oxygen to the atmosphere. When the wood is burned this carbon is oxidized and released as CO2. As a result, using wood from sustainably managed trees reduces net CO2 production (small amounts are released by the activities of processing and transportation) compared to using fossil fuels. Heating using wood will significantly reduce our reliance on fossil fuels.

WHY BUY OUR KILN DRIED LOGS & KINDLING?

Moisture content of wood is very important, if the logs are not kiln dried and have a high moisture/water content, the logs will boil off the water before the wood will burn, this reduces the energy/heat released from the log, (wet wood will send steam up the chimney) that’s If you can get the damp log to light at all, logs that are not dry will result in a fire that smolders and creates lots of tar, creosote and smoke, this can be corrosive, potentially damaging the lining of the flue and increasing the danger of a chimney fire.
