Kiln Dry or Seasoned Logs?

Should I use Kiln Dried logs or Seasoned logs in my stove?


If you have a modern stove with or without a liner fitted,

we would always recommend Kiln dry hardwood logs. You can buy logs that are advertised as 'Seasoned' but make sure that they have been properley seasoned for two seasoned and not just chopped down and left for a few months. Logs that are not properley seasoned can have moisture content of 35-  to even 50% which is bad for your appkliance, bad for your liner and the environment.


If in doubt, buy Kiln dried hardwood logs. These should have a moisture content of less than 20%

Our Kiln dry logs have are standard length and quality, easy to light and burn really well.

Studies have shown that buying Kiln Dry logs from a sustainable source is not only good for the environment and your appliance but pound for pound is usually no more expensive that buying cheaper logs with a higher moisture content. More water = less wood.
