At BPS we only supply seasoned logs that are split and ready to burn. They are locally sourced from Englefield Estates managed woodland. It is delivered into our yard as bars, we then “ring” the wood as pictured and it’s left to dry, it is then split and again left to dry.
We have been processing wood on our site supplied directly to us from Englefield for many years and we’ve had the same customer’s for years!
If you require a specific length of log then please contact us and we can arrange for logs to cut at your specific length, our standard cut is 8-10 inches
Hardwood or Softwood?
Both hardwood and softwood have the same energy content (by mass) and will provide similar heat outputs. The difference will be in the rate at which the fuel burns. Hardwoods derived from slow-growing broadleaf trees will burn at a slower rate for sustained output. Softwoods are derived from evergreen trees such as conifers, which are fast growing and the wood will burn much quicker.
One of the most critical factors in wood burning is the moisture content of the wood, as any water in firewood has to be boiled off during the burning process. Freshly cut wood (known as green wood) often has a moisture content greater than 40%. Green wood should never be used for firewood it can potentially lead to chimney fires.
