Seasoned Firewood

 

Our logs are produced from our tree operations and are processed in our main yard to quality firewood.

The process of  Green wood to burnable log takes approximately 15 months.

As wood comes into the yard it is stacked ready for splitting on our hydraulic splitter and saw-benches.

 

From here it is stacked in a covered barns or in our polytunnel for seasoning. Our yards are situated to provide a good supply of windy days to draw the moisture off the wood.  By density we aim to produce each log with approximately 25% moisture content when loaded giving a high calorific value.

 

Log loads can be either pure hardwood or mixed hardwood and softwood. The likely content of the hardwood/softwood mixed loads are species such as willow, poplar, cedar and spruce. We try not to put conifer or pine in the loads but we never have a problem with logs splitting or not burning.

 

Our seasoning process is so good we get positive feedback from our log loads every year !
