Kiln Dried Logs for Sale in Chichester

Chichester benefits from the mild winters of West Sussex and the South English coast, but as with anywhere in England, winters are becoming longer and colder, and it’s always good to be prepared for that sudden cold snap. When winter brings colder, wetter weather it’s nice to be able to come home and put your feet up in front of the warm, merry glow of a crackling wood fire, enjoy the light wood smoke suffusing your home with a wonderful smell and enjoy the thought that you only need to top of the logs once in a while.

Thanks to the kiln drying process, the wood you use from Logs Direct is perfect for just this sort of fire, dried to below 20% moisture content so that there’s as little excess water present as possible. This means that your logs don’t have to evaporate all the water before they can burn properly, and will start burning hot straight away, and last much longer until they’re done. Altogether, a kiln dried log is up to 3 times as efficient as green or unseasoned wood, and is much nicer to use as well.

Unseasoned firewood is particularly bad if you use a wood burning stove, since the excess moisture causes smoke to be thick and damp, clinging to the inside of your stove and chimney leading to build ups of soot and creosote which makes your stove less efficient in future, and potentially dangerous as well. If you use a wood burning stove then it is vital that you only buy the best dried wood available, and our kiln dried wood is certain to be low in moisture content.

Wood you buy from Logs Direct has been sourced only from FSC approved forests, which helps to maintain local ecosystems, reduce deforestation and look after the environment. For each tree cut down a new one is planted, keeping forests healthy and sizeable, and also helping to reduce carbon emissions. As wood is burned in your fireplace it will be absorbed by the newly planted trees, making your Logs Direct firewood a carbon neutral fuel source.
