Frequently Asked Questions
What is the best wood to buy?
If you are buying wood for a wood burner make sure that the wood you are buying is well seasoned. Our wood is well seasoned and stored in a barn once cut to keep the moisture level of the wood as low as we can.
Ash and Oak is a good combination of wood to buy. We often recommend our customers to buy one bag of Ash and one bag of Oak. The Ash is great for starting the fire then after 45 minutes start adding the Oak which burns hot and for long periods of time.
If you are only looking for one bag of logs then the mixed would be a good choice. Please speak to a member of staff and discuss the options available.
What is the moisture content of your wood?
We do not advertise the moisture content of our logs, they are sold as barn stored dry seasoned logs. The moisture content of wood can change easily due to a few contributing factors such as weather conditions, storage and type of wood. Our logs are recommended by local chimney sweeps and wood burning stove fitters which leads us to believe that the logs we sell are good quality.
What is the best way to start a fire?
We would recommend that customers buy a box of firelighters and a bag of our kindling wood. Place one firelighter block into the base of your stove or fire grate, screw up 3-5 pieces of newspaper or similar add on top 5-8 pieces of kindling wood laying it on top of the paper in a layered effect. Get ready 2-3 small logs that have been chopped exposing the wood rather than the bark, light the paper carefully with a long match or appropriate lighter, stand back for 2 minutes while the kindling starts to burn then add on up to 3 small logs. Please be very careful not to burn yourself whilst doing this.
We would recommend that customers buy from us a long handed pair of leather gauntlet gloves to protect themselves from burning.
What is the size of the delivery van bringing my logs?
The van that will be delivering your logs is a Ford Transit crew cab, we can carry up to 4 bulk bags on the van at any one delivery.
Who will be delivering my logs?

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." ......
