Kiln Dried Logs

We have invested in a kiln drying facility to enable us to deliver dry logs year round.

Our basic philosophy of cutting and barn drying our wood through the summer months to deliver out from September through to December has worked really well. It ensures our wood is dry and enables us to deliver large quantities quickly. It is therefore unusual for us to have a waiting list of more than a week.

Unfortunately as there is limited storage space, our barn dried logs have generally gone by Christmas. For this reason and to maintain a quality product, we installed a kiln drying facility. Our first boiler was operational four years ago and due to the demand for kiln dried wood, we now have three installations. Almost 50% of the wood we sell is now kiln dried.

Our boilers are fuelled by the waste wood and sawdust generated from cutting the logs and also the slab wood generated from our sawmill operations and as such we do feel this is Eco friendly and a good 'green' solution for waste wood that was a problem to dispose of and generally ended up on a bonfire.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to burn dry wood in modern woodburner/ multifuel appliances. You get so much more heat from a dry log and no problems with soot or tar in your chimney flues.

The air is then directed down the tunnel, through the laterals and into the wood next door.

We know that lots of people have had bad experiences with wet wood and now insist on kiln dried wood as they feel this gives them the ultimate guarantee. For this reason our kiln dried logs will be available all year round. As most kiln dried producers provide a nationwide service, their prices include a nationwide delivery charge. As we are only going to provide a local service initially, our prices will be very competitive as they will exclude this additional cost. We would hope that kiln dried customers will use there local supplier and save money.
