Getting the stock in for next year!

We’re getting ready to supply lovely seasoned hardwood for next year.

Not only are we flat out selling the seasoned hardwood, that has been prepared for this years sales, but we are also busy accumulating wood for next years season. We are storing it ensuring it has a minimum of a year to season.  Some of the wood we are collecting already has a low moisture content so is being stored in the airy log driers.

 

It was such a cracking autmun day.  What could be better than being amoungst the trees on a day like this.

People stocking up!

Our trailer has been busy recently with new and existing customers stocking up for the winter ahead.

Our seasoned hardwood logs are kept dry until transfered into the method of delivery either the trailer load or the bags below.

 

 

Some customers are more suited to the smaller deliveries but are still taking advantage of the multiple purchase discount.

Bags of Kindling are proving popular as well

How to get the best from your logs

Not all logs are the same!  The different type of timber give off various sort of heat.  We detail what to look for to achieve the optimum from your wood.

It’s essential that all the logs that you burn in your stove, woodburner or open fire are fully seasoned and below 25% moisture content.  If the logs don’t meet this criteria they won’t burn as efficientially and can lead to problematic build up of deposits in your chimney.

These deposits  of creosote or resinous material can cause serious problems with chimney fires, or prevent the chimney functioning properly. This can allow harmful fumes to escape into the dwelling. It’s important that once you have loaded your fire that you get the fire to burn intensely, this will stop harmful gases build up as they are burnt off.  Once there is only charcoal or embers left then shut the fire down to burn slowly.  Newly added wood set to burn slowly creates smoke and creosote in the chimney.  It is good practice to have your chimney swept at least twice a year.

This is the reason that One man and His Log ensure that all the logs that supplied all have a moisture content below 25%.  However it is important to bring your logs in a day before use to let any residual moisture evaporate.

If you are concerned that the logs that you have bought from another supplier are too wet then we can test the moisture for you at your home, we can then advise you how to store your logs properly, essentially letting lots of air flow through?
