Kiln Dried Ash and Oak Firewood

Ash and oak are probably the most popular wood for stoves and pizza ovens, even for a beginner you just can't go wrong with these logs. Because our logs are kiln dried then more energy is used in the production of heat and less is needed to evaporate the water from the log. Ash & oak are both very dense hardwoods and thus have very high calorific values - for you this means a lot of heat from your logs! Both burn with a nice flame and both burn relatively slowly, they will both burn perfectly on their own.

Moisture Content

Our customers tell us that what they want is good, dry wood, which is why we guarantee a maximum moisture content.The average moisture content (MC) of our kiln dried firewood is guaranteed below 20% and is normally between 10 and 14%. This is really low and means that only little of the energy in your wood is used for the evaporation of water. In the current market there is a lot of firewood, supposedly kiln dried, on offer with an MC of 20-25%. In effect, this means you are paying a lot for the 'drying' of the wood before it gives you heath . The drier the firewood, the more 'heat' value you can get from it. Moisture in the wood 'costs' heat so the drier the wood the better. Generally wood with 15% MC has an approximate 20% higher calorific value than the same wood with 25% MC.

Firewood Species

Hardwood Ash and oak are ideal for your log burner but not all hardwood is the same. Ash and oak are probably the most popular giving along lasting fire with nice flame display and a relatively high heat production.

THIS IS WHY WE ONLY SUPPLY KILN DRIED ASH AND OAK LOGS
