Getting the best out of Kiln Dried Logs
In order to get the best results start the burning process with a large handful of our kindling wood, one fire lighter and pick some smaller pieces of wood from your pile, as the fire burns gradually add on additional wood pieces increasing in size as you go.
Our kiln dried logs are ready to go and guaranteed to burn. They are often a favourite with customers towards the end of the winter season when many suppliers are running low with stocks of dry barn stored hard wood. It is also worth considering kiln dried hard wood if the wood is to be stacked in to your home, having it kiln dried removes any harbouring bugs and potential mould.
The kiln used to dry this wood is very local to us and is run on waste wood which has been created by tree surgeons who cannot use the knotted large pieces they have cut.
What do our customers think?
“The man in charge was polite and very helpful ”
"I took delivery of two loads of logs yesterday and just wanted to pass on my thanks for the service received. The man in charge was polite and very helpful and the three men working with him worked methodically offloading the logs. It is commendable that you provide adults with learning difficulties the opportunity to gain employment and on the evidence I have seen it's a win-win situation for all envolved. The logs I ordered will last through to next winter but I will definately use the services you provide when more are required." ......

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
