At Ideal Tree Services, we are committed to providing not only exceptional tree care services but also offering high-quality firewood products to keep your home warm and cozy during the colder months.
Our Logs and Kindling Services are designed to meet your heating needs while adhering to UK legislation and best practices for sustainable wood burning.
UK Legislation and Sustainable Burning
Before purchasing firewood, it’s essential to understand the UK legislation surrounding wood burning. In designated Smoke Control Areas, only approved fuels, such as dry wood, can be used for burning in open fires and wood-burning stoves. We ensure that our firewood products meet these regulations, allowing you to enjoy a clean and efficient burn while minimizing environmental impact.
Choosing the Right Wood for Burning
Not all types of wood are suitable for burning, as some produce more heat, less smoke, and leave behind fewer residues. Hardwoods like oak, ash, and beech are ideal choices due to their higher energy content and cleaner burn. Our logs are carefully selected to provide you with the best quality firewood, ensuring a consistent and efficient burn.
Methods of Wood Preparation
Our commitment to providing top-notch firewood starts with the careful selection, chopping, and seasoning of the wood:
1. Selection: We choose trees that are suitable for firewood, ensuring that the wood is healthy and free from contaminants that could affect the burn.
2. Chopping: After felling trees for tree care or removal reasons, we carefully process the wood into manageable pieces suitable for burning. We cut the wood into appropriate sizes to fit a variety of stoves and fireplaces.
3. Seasoning: Green wood contains a high moisture content, which can lead to inefficient burning and excessive smoke. We take the time to properly season the wood, allowing it to dry out naturally. This process ensures that the firewood achieves optimal moisture levels for an efficient and clean burn.
1. Cutting: We cut the wood into logs of appropriate lengths for easy handling and optimal combustion.
2. Splitting: The logs are split to expose the inner layers, allowing moisture to evaporate more effectively during the seasoning process.
3. Stacking and Drying: The split logs are stacked in well-ventilated areas, allowing air circulation to aid in the drying process. Properly seasoned wood results in cleaner, hotter burns and reduced creosote buildup.
4. Quality Control: We regularly monitor the moisture content of our firewood to ensure it meets the optimal level for efficient burning.
We understand that convenience matters, so we offer a variety of log sizes and kindling options to suit your specific needs. Whether you’re heating your home, enjoying a cozy outdoor fire, or need kindling for a quick start, we have you covered.
