More about our Oak Hardwood
Our Kiln Dried Oak Hardwood Logs are very dense and are particularly recommended for the seasoned burner. Being so dense, these logs give a long, hot burn and are extremely long lasting but may take a little practice to get a fire established (See Below).
Starting your Log Fire with Oak
We often recommend our customers start their log fires with softwood logs and then move onto Hardwood. This will ensure a longer lasting fire, while allowing you to light your stove or appliance with relative ease.
Facts about the Oak Tree
The Oak tree has been around for a long time. In fact, they pre-date humans and is regarded as our national tree. Due to its size and its legendary strength, it was commonly used for framing building, creating furniture and was in demand from ship builders before the introduction of lighter metal alternatives in the 1850’s.
Did you know that the largest Oak tree lives in Sherwood Forest? With a diameter of over 35 feet and weighing in at 25 tones, it’s estimated to be over a thousand years old.
Why you should never burn wet wood
Burning Wet Logs may appear cheaper but can be very harmful to your Fireplace and Chimney. If you burn a wet log, you’re basically burning off the water contained in the log before the log can light properly. This can leave heavy residue (Tar) in your Flue, Chimney and Appliance that can build up to dangerous levels over time. Inevitably resulting in chimney/flue fires in your home.
