Our sustainably sourced logs have been kiln dried to reduce moisture. Less moisture means more heat output, a cleaner burn and ultimately means you need fewer logs.
What’s in the bags?
A thinner split log, allows the fire to get up to cooking temperature quickly . Log length = 25cm logs (9.8 inches). Tolerance on length is +/- 10%. Log diameter = 4 -10cm (1.5 – 3.9 inches) measured across widest point of the log.
Our bags contain a mixture of British hardwood sourced from a responsible woodland thinning process. The species of wood that we typically source includes Ash, Beech and Oak. We do not target specific wood species for the purpose of sustainability. All logs have to pass a quality control check before being dispatched.
Why kiln dried logs?
Kiln dried logs provide superior heat levels thanks to the kiln drying process which quickly removes most of the water saturation from the wood. This results in our logs having a less than 20% moisture content, making them perfect for burning in firepits or pizza ovens.
The biggest advantage of kiln dried hardwood is that the logs are consistent in their quality, heat output and moisture content because of the kiln drying process. When logs are put into a kiln for a set time, at a specific temperature, it will ensure moisture levels are always below 20%. Seasoned logs, on the other hand, can often produce less heat because their moisture levels can be inconsistent due to their lengthy and uncontrolled drying process.
