High quality softwood firewood is ideal for wood burning stoves. It is recommended to mix your wood for best value and long lasting energy.
Some Facts about Firewood Log Quality
The three most important factors for firewood quality are moisture content (degree of seasoning), Tree species and the size of the logs:
Firewood should always be seasoned or dried before use.
Most moisture loss is through the ends of logs so these should be open and exposed, air flow through the stack should also be unhindered. Bark may be scored or partially or fully removed to assist drying. The stack should be covered to prevent direct re-wetting from rain, with either a roof, or waterproof or semi-permeable sheeting.You can tell logs that are well seasoned and fully air dry (below 20% moisture content).They have cracks and splits across the grain,and the bark comes off easily.
In general hardwoods make better firewood as they have higher calorific value and burn more slowly.
Softwoods can be easier to light but burn more quickly, they can be useful for kindling.
Sycamore -- one of the most frequently felled trees as it self seeds vigorously, burns just fine.
Ash -- arguably the finest firewood available in the UK.
Oak -- burns slowly and produces masses of heat.
Birch -- good timber for burning, but does burn more quickly than many other species.
Cherry, Apple, Pear -- excellent for the fire, they burn slowly and produce plenty of heat and aromas.
Holly -- hard, slow burning timber which makes for a good fire.
Log Size Advice
Provided they are of suitable size to fit in the stove, feed hopper or grate, log sizing is relatively straightforward. If larger than 12 - 15 cm diameter they should be split.
Edinburgh Firewood logs are split when the diameter is above 12 cm.
Some Information on Storing Firewood Outside
Firewood needs the sun and wind to remain optimal or improve for burning. Firewood should not be completely covered all around unless long periods of heavy rain are forecast.
If possible store firewood off the ground in an area that receives both sun and prevailing winds. A thin tarpaulin or pieces of plywood can be placed on top to repel rain and moisture, but always leave the sides open and the entire wood pile open whenever possible. Trapped moisture can only create mold,fungus,bug and decaying problems.
Remember wood retains the heat of the day and moisture will build underneath a cover when the outside night air becomes colder. Storage of dry firewood in an open wood store, wood shed, under a porch roof, in a garage, on a log rack perhaps with some plywood or taarpaulin is best
Take care when moving the logs as frogs have a habit of making their winter homes amongst the dark crevices.
