Purchasing Firewood Checklist 2024

Whether you are purchasing with us or not in 2024, here are a few points to consider when dealing with your local firewood merchant ! 1) Are you receiving a certified measurement/ what you paid for? Firewood merchants who advertise 'per m3/cube' must have a volume certification by Trading Standards (Measurement and Product Safety Service) and in their trucks at all time. 2) Is the firewood seasoned? Most firewood merchants chop down a tree, split it into firewood and sell it straight away as the holding costs are too high. If this is the case, you are best to use this firewood the following year! 3) Best burning wood vs price? Our price is indicative of what is truly required to season wood and deliver it to you for burning. 4) Do I need soft and hardwoods mix? Yes, in some cases, some hardwoods are extremely dense that you need the hot ember base to keep the wood burning ! However, the Native Beech Hardwood is unique, that once dry, it is simple to light and maintain.

Stacked Firewood

Efficient firewood is the cheapest firewood! Important considerations when making a cost-effective purchase:

  1. How long will the firewood burn for?
  2. What thermal value does the wood have?
  3. Is the firewood seasoned? *Burning firewood with a moisture content above 25% will be costly for you and the environment! Wet wood produces far less energy and you'll require a lot more wood to fulfill your winter heating requirements.
  4. How often will I need to have my chimney swept? *Burning woods with high resin content such as Pine and Fir will create creosote build up in your chimney and require regular cleaning.
  5. Will the quantity of wood delivered be full of debris or just firewood?
