Top Quality Kiln Dried Logs for Sale, Delivered Anywhere in the UK
When you’re looking for logs, you’re looking for certain qualities above and beyond just keeping your house warm. You want firewood that will crackle pleasantly in your fireplace, but without spitting. You want the pleasant aroma of woodsmoke to gently infuse your home without making it difficult to breathe. You want wood that will last a long time, but also burn bright and hot, warming you right down to your bones. It’s difficult to find wood like this, but thanks to Logs Direct you can have the wood you need to build your perfect fire.
Kiln Dried for a Quality Burn
To get the best quality of wood for your fire, you want wood that has been kiln dried to a low moisture content, removing as much of the excess water as possible. When water is left in a log, such as in freshly chopped wood, all of the heat of a fire is wasted trying to evaporate it. This makes your fire weak, barely heating the room and giving off an acrid, choking smoke which is bad for you and bad for the environment. This is even more of a problem for wood burning stoves, where the smoke will clog up chimneys and flues with creosote.
For the best burn, you want logs that have been reduced to less than 20% moisture content, and the best way to achieve this is through the kiln drying process. While moisture content can be reduced by letting the wood dry out naturally, this process can take years before the wood naturally dries to the same level as kiln dried logs, and all the while will take up a lot of space in your garden. You can save yourself time and space by simply using kiln dried wood from Logs Direct.
When the moisture content of wood reaches less than 20%, the true qualities of firewood are unlocked. A kiln dried log can burn up to 3 times better than unseasoned wood. It will burn easily, making your fire quick to start, simple to maintain and warm enough to heat the whole room. The smoke contains much less moisture, making it better for wood burning stoves and also giving you the wonderfully pleasant smell that traditional fires are famous for.
With so much evidence pointing towards global warming and deforestation, you’ll also want to make sure that the firewood you buy is firewood you can trust, sourced from FSC approved forests. FSC approval ensures that forests are used in an environmentally sustainable manner, maintain their biodiversity and positively impact society, both locally and in the wider world. The FSC tick is a sign that the wood you’re buying is good for everyone, from local workers to the global environment.
Wood is also a naturally carbon neutral resource. When you burn wood in your fireplace or stove, the carbon that was locked into the logs is released back into the atmosphere, where it can then be reabsorbed by new, growing trees. This is exactly the same process that occurs when a tree dies and rots naturally, where carbon is also released back into the environment. Trees need carbon dioxide in order to grow, so as long as there are as many trees planted as are burned, the carbon released from burning wood cancels itself out, even helping forests to grow and thrive.
Thanks to the FSC tick you can be sure that the wood you use is safe for the environment, with forest management ensuring that at least as many new trees are planted as are cut down. Unlike gas or electric heating, your firewood fuel is helping save the planet.
