Is the firewood fully seasoned?

All kiln dried products are guaranteed under 20% moisture and woodsure approved. Seasoned products will all be below 30% moisture but below that can vary in moisture content depending on how long they have been in the yard. We endeavour to season everything for at least 12 months however this is not always possible. With seasoned products the customer may have to season the wood further before its moisture content drops to levels suitable for burning. This is why the products are not covered by Woodsure/Ready to Burn.

Your logs can be stored inside or out. They should be stored with good ventilation and protection from the weather, especially rain. They should be raised off the ground so that air can circulate underneath to keep the moisture content low.

What's the difference between softwood and hardwood?
