All the wood we process into logs is grown within the South Hams, some from managed Forests and our own Forest management thinnings.
Woodleigh Wood are able to supply you with exactly the firewood you require, wether you have an open fire, multifuel burner or a woodburner.
Our split logs are available in 8", 10", 12" and large 20" Biomass logs.
Around 98% of our customers now buy a 50% Softwood / Hardwood log mix, finding that having 1/2 Softwood slightly reduces the cost of the load in addition to being easier lighting.
Softwood initially raises room temperature quicker on starting the fire and also if the fire has been forgotten and dies down, adding a few softwood logs rapidly brings the fire back to life.
Hardwood can take up to 3 times as long to grow as Softwood, so for the planet's sake always order 50 /50 Firewood.
Also fewer commercial Forestry companies are investing in re-planting hardwoods, so we should all bear this in mind and order a 50 / 50 mixture of soft and hardwood.
Our HARDWOOD is generally a mix of Ash, Beech and Oak, with some other excellent burning species such as Birch and Sycamore. However there is a lot of misleading information published about good and bad species to burn.
Most timber species burn well if it is correctly seasoned.
Our SOFTWOOD is almost exclusively Larch and Douglas, which are recognised as being 2 of the best Softwoods to burn and great to start your fire with.
Those of you have well ventilated outside storage, why not take this opportunity to save on your wood-fuel heating costs by buying part - seasoned firewood and complete the drying process yourself.

6/ A low cost moisture meter can help you assess when your firewood is ready to burn - 20% or below is ideal.
