Why Use Firewood?
Firewood as a home-heating fuel is becoming ever more popular due to the uncertainty of supply and the ever increasing price of fossil fuels. It also offers people the chance to reduce their carbon footprint as burning timber from well selected sources makes great savings in carbon emissions compared with using traditional fossil fuels for heating. "The CO2 that is released when firewood fuel is burnt is equivalent to that taken from the atmosphere through photosynthesis during tree growth" Forestry Commission England. The use of Woodfuel makes good use of logs created as a by product of the Arboricultural industry as well as encouraging proper management of local woodlands. When well managed thinning and coppicing of woodland leads to greater bio-diversity and habitat for flora and fauna. On an emotional level there is few things that compare to a crackling log fire on a cold winters night.
Seasoning and Storing Logs
Because trees contain a lot of water, freshly cut logs will contain around 50% water and are difficult to burn without some seasoning taking place. Wood felled during one winter should be seasoned over the next summer and even longer if possible to bring the moisture content down to 25%-33%. The firewood hardwoods we sell have a lower moisture content than softwoods. A reputable firewood merchant should only sell you seasoned logs.
- Logs are best stacked outside in an area away from rain/moisture but where the air can still circulate. Pallets make a good base to allow circulation but prevent moisture uptake from the ground. (You can also buy purpose built outdoor log stores)
- If you are storing them in doors ( shed/garage ), try an allow air to get to them. Logs can become covered with mould if stored in poorly ventilated areas.
- Stack where possible bark side down and to allow the moisture to continue to evaporate.
- A waterproof covering over the top of the logs is a good idea but try to leave the sides open to allow air circulation.
- It is a good idea when possible to bring into the house a few days worth of firewood to gently allow it to warm and even more evaporation to occur.
- Some types of tree make better firewood than others.
- Broadleafed ( hardwood )trees are denser than softwoods. This means that they provide more heat per similar size load than the softwoods.
- In general ash, oak, beech, birch, sycamore and hornbeam all make first class firewoods.
- All conifers such as pine, plus sweet chestnut and turkey oak are liable to throw sparks but can be used if well seasoned in a closed woodburning stove or boiler.
