More about our logs ...
Most HotFirewood logs are produced from a 9-acre private sustainable woodland, working to a woodland regeneration plan approved and supported by the Forestry Commission.

Material created by tree surgery operations supplements the output from the woodland and normally ensures that there are sufficient logs, firewood and kindling available to meet customers' requirements. However, Autumn and Winter see a very high demand, so early ordering is advisable.

Storing your logs ...
When storing your logs, the longer the logs are dried the lower the moisture content, the fewer bugs, insects and fungal spores there are and the better the wood burns.

If for logs 'tis laid away.
Make a fire of Elder tree,
Death within your house will be.
But Ash new or Ash old
Is fit for a queen with crown of gold.
Birch and Fir logs burn too fast
Blaze up bright and do not last,
It is by the Irish said
Hawthorn bakes the sweetest bread.
Elm wood burns like churchyard mould
E'en the very flames are cold.
But Ash green or Ash brown
Is fit for a queen with golden crown.
Poplar gives a bitter smoke,
Fills your eyes and makes you choke.
Apple wood will scent your room.
Pear wood smells like flowers in bloom.
Oaken logs, if dry and old
Keep away the winter's cold.
But Ash wet or Ash dry
A king shall warm his slippers by ..."
