About our Barn Stored Logs
Our barn stored seasoned logs are all well seasoned before processing starts. Once seasoned they are cut up into approximately 10” lengths, piled up and stored in a very large barn to dry further, they then get bagged into bulk bags and delivered straight to the customer.
Our small nets of logs are handled in a slightly different way. They are still cut to the same size but instead of staying in the same barn with the other logs we store them in a large greenhouse which over the summer reaches very hot temperatures resulting in our logs being extremely dry.
Oak logs are generally thought to be the best logs to burn. The wood is very dense and the results are that it burns very hot and for long periods of time, even after it has broken down the embers of the wood will still give out a lot of heat. Always make sure when buying Oak logs that they are well seasoned.
Ash logs are the most popular to burn and are recommended widely by wood burning specialists. They give out a good amount of heat when burnt along with a steady flame and give off a lower amount of smoke. On many sites it may say that Ash logs can be burned in a green state (freshly cut) please do not burn any green logs on your lovely wood burning stoves, the moisture in the wood will soot up the chimney and reduce heat output. Please only ever burn well seasoned wood.
Beech logs burn very well with a bright flame, very similar to Ash logs, A dense wood that lasts longer than softer woods.
Chestnut is a hard wood and burns well, the heat output is good, would only recommend it to be burnt on wood burning stoves as it can spit. Chestnut would be a good wood to mix with Oak. Start off with Chestnut to get the fire burning well then after 45 minutes add Oak. This combination of burning two types of wood we highly recommended.
Our mixed bags of wood are a mix of all of the above. The mixed bags are an extremely good seller for us. We also recommend that our customers may buy one mixed bag and one Oak or Ash bag enabling them to burn a combination of wood resulting in a maximum heat output along with good value for money.
Unseasoned logs are best burnt on an open fire, we are often asked to supply these to pubs as they have very large fire places. Unseasoned logs can be burnt on domestic open fire places, they burn their best when used in conjunction with coal. They are not recommended for wood burning stoves as the moisture content is too high and will soot up your chimney quickly. They are an ideal way of saving a few pounds if space is available to season them yourself.

The Firewood Poem
Beechwood fires are bright and clear
If the logs are kept a year,
Chestnut's only good they say,
If for logs 'tis laid away.
Make a fire of Elder tree,
Death within your house will be;
But ash new or ash old,
Is fit for a queen with crown of gold
Birch and fir logs burn too fast
Blaze up bright and do not last,
it is by the Irish said
Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.
Elm wood burns like churchyard mould,
E'en the very flames are cold
But ash green or ash brown
Is fit for a queen with golden crown
Poplar gives a bitter smoke,
Fills your eyes and makes you choke,
Apple wood will scent your room
Pear wood smells like flowers in bloom
Oaken logs, if dry and old
keep away the winter's cold
But ash wet or ash dry
a king shall warm his slippers by.
The firewood poem was written by Celia Congreve, is believed to be first published in THE TIMES newspaper on March 2nd 1930
