Firewood and biomass log sales in Uttoxeter
Our firewood is ready for use with all wood burning appliances with the majority of logs cut to 250mm (10”) in length and split where required into a range of sizes producing some larger logs for overnight or prolonged burning. If you have a special size requirement we can cut logs to your specified length between 200-500mm (8”-20”) long (additional charge may apply) however the firewood produced may need further seasoning in your store before burning so early ordering is advised.
Self-supply biomass log and chip or delivered biomass log solutions please contact us to discuss your requirements.
Firewood and why it’s a good fuel to heat your home or business.
Quite simply firewood produces the same amount of CO2 when burnt as if it was left to rot on the woodland floor. Sustainability comes from woods and forests where trees are managed to promote the overall health, vigour and longevity of the woodland or forest crop ensuring future tree cover to continue absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Hardwood or Softwood which to burn?
Well we would recommend a mixed delivery of both and here’s why.
Softwood is a faster growing timber and therefore doesn’t produce the tighter, denser growth rings of deciduous hardwood’s it does however contain resins within the lower density timber which act as a natural firelighter this gives a fast heat output in the initial lighting and establishment of the fire to warm the fire bricks, stove or appliance creating an efficient burn warming the chimney or flue creating better draw and less potential for tar deposits.
Softwood does burn faster and that’s why we would recommend moving to hardwoods once the fire is established. Deciduous hardwoods are slower to grow so produce a denser timber giving a longer burn and sustained heat output.
Storage of your firewood once it’s been delivered.
Of course we would love to build you one of our purpose built firewood stores where we can build and site a store to your own unique requirements. Alternatively anywhere off the ground so air can flow freely underneath whether it’s on pallets or raised base with slatted sides and open front, waterproof roof sloped away from the house or building walls ideally in a position with good airflow and sunshine.
Seasoned and even kiln dried firewood stored outside will still have some surface moisture so it’s a good idea to bring the logs indoors in the morning so they are ready to burn that evening.
