WOODSURE READY TO BURN
We have just been awarded the Woodsure Ready to Burn certification. This confirms all the hard work, planning and effort we have been putting into ensuring we only supply, the best logs and service, with a moisture content of 20% or below has paid off and been recognised.
Northumberland Logs has evolved over the last 8 years, from a small log supplier which started as an experiment, selling firewood from waste timber and fallen trees to the business we are now. We make it our priority to sell a high quality consistent firewood which is at or below 20% moisture content from a sustainable source from the North East of England and very often from our own woodland, delivering within the week from receiving the order.
As a business we also appreciate the benefits of trees and as a result will have planted up to 150 000 trees over a 3 year period, creating wholly new woodland making us fully sustainable. This is in conjunction with the replanting all of our woodland which has been clear felled is benefiting the environment.
WHAT IS WOODSURE READY TO BURN
This is a recognised industry standard which aims to improve the quality of woodfuel throughout the UK. Wherever you see the Woodsure Ready to Burn certification mark and logo, you can be confident that your woodfuel supplier has been independently checked and audited to make sure their products are of the highest quality – and sustainably sourced. A not-for-profit organisation, Woodsure is backed by Defra, HETAS and the Stove Industry Alliance.
DRIED LOGS – BETTER FOR YOU, BETTER FOR THE ENVIRONMENT.
Not all firewood logs are ready to burn. Freshly felled trees in mid winter vary from around 35% in ash up to 50 to 65% in trees like alder, willow, and elm. Even logs stored for some time can contain too much moisture as result of damp or humid air. Wind is our friend, hence why at Northumberland Logs we are sited in a draughty spot which helps to remove the moisture from our logs naturally aiding the seasoning.
Modern wood-burning stoves are simply not designed to burn damp logs. Burning damp logs is a false economy, water doesn’t burn.
