Our sustainably sourced hardwood logs have been kiln dried to reduce moisture. Less moisture means more heat output, a cleaner burn and ultimately means you need fewer logs.
These premier ‘ready to burn’ logs are ideal for: stoves, open fires & pizza ovens. Fuel suitable for DEFRA approved stoves that can be used in a smoke control area.
What’s in the bag?
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 stoves or open fires.
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.
Using kiln dried logs as fuel for your stove can also help to keep the glass clear and stop tar and soot building up in your flue or chimney as quickly. This is because of the higher heat output and reduced vapour when burning from our kiln dried logs.
The size of logs is also important for optimum burning. Most stove manufacturers recommend logs that are 25cm long and are no bigger than 15cm in diameter. We therefore ensure all the logs we supply meet this criteria as standard (unless you select a larger log size when purchasing). Logs that are 25cm in length and 5-15cm diameter will fit 99% of multi fuel/wood burning stoves.

All stoves and open fires are different, however we’ve put together some estimations for different use-types:
For occasional use, you’ll most likely need either the 30 bag pallet or the 0.8m3 bulk bag.
For moderate use (2-3 fires per week), either the 50 bag pallet or the 1.2m3 bulk bag will most likely suit your needs.
For regular use (fires most nights per week), we recommend buying either the 80 bag pallet or 1.6m3 bulk bag.
Generally the more logs you buy the better value for money your purchase is.
- 0.8m3 bulk bag is equivalent to 24 small bags or nets of logs.
- 1.2m3 bulk bag is equivalent to 36 small bags or nets of logs.
- 1.6m3 bulk bag is equivalent to 48 small bags or nets of logs.
- 30x bags are the equivalent to 0.6m3 stacked volume. Approx 8-12 logs per bag.
- 50x bags are the equivalent to 1.0m3 stacked volume. Approx 8-12 logs per bag.
- 80x bags are the equivalent to 1.6m3 stacked volume. Approx 8-12 logs per bag.
