Wood Types

Softwood or Hardwood

Softwood or Hardwood? What species is it?

Oak Woodland (Hardwood)

Most wood will burn fine and give lots of heat provided it is of the correct moisture content. However, softwood (e.g. Pine, Spruce, Fir, etc) has a slightly lower calorific value, so for every 3 logs of hardwood (Oak, Ash, Beech, etc) you will need to use 4 logs of softwood. However we would encourage log users to use a proportion of softwood – it gives quick heat, is readily available, and is slightly cheaper.

Conifer Woodland

It remains of the utmost importance to have the flue pipe or chimney swept regularly and the stove kept in good condition no matter what you are burning.
