Do you produce your own logs?
At David Woods Firewood we purchase hardwood timber in bulk and, with our large site here at Rougham, we can use an efficient storage system to ensure that it is fully seasoned. Our sawmill has a range of machinery to cut to size and split logs in bulk. This modern equipment allows us to offer the best possible prices and ensure value for money for our large customer base in North West Norfolk. Companies sourcing logs from different suppliers cannot always guarantee the quality of their wood.
By buying your logs well in advance and keeping them in a well ventilated store, your can ensure that logs that your log are ready to use them the following autumn/winter. It is also a good idea to keep a sufficient supply of logs in your fireplace so they are in top condition when you come to burn them.
What is the best way to store my logs?
Efficient storage is essential to ensure your log burner performs at its best. Protect your logs from rain and snow but ensure that fresh air can pass over them to aid the drying process. Storing them on old pallets on the floor will assist ventilation. Make sure that the wet cannot come in from the sides, a simple roofed-in structure with slatted boards to the sides should be just the job. By keeping your logs dry, you will ensure easy lighting and the resulting clean burning will result in little soot being produced. As the wood will not need to use its energy to evaporate its own moisture, you will find you get more of the calorific value from the logs and you will see that you need to use fewer logs than when the moisture content is higher.
