How dry is your firewood?
On average our logs have been split and air dried for up to 1 year to give a moisture content of between 22 - 32% (in peak winter periods that may rise a little as stocks of fully air dried firewood dwindle).
What size are your logs?
We try to keep our logs to a minimum length of 20cm and a maximum of 30cm and they are nicely split to give a manageable log.
What type of wood do you put into your firewood?
Our hardwood firewood is primarily Oak, Ash, Beech and Birch and our softwood firewood is primarily, spruce, pine and sometimes larch.
