Log Types and Burn Rates

The rate at which a log burns in a wood-burning stove depends on various factors. Here are some considerations:

  • Log Size: Larger logs burn more slowly than smaller ones. Choose the right log size based on your stove’s capacity and desired burn time.
  • Wood Types: Different wood species have varying burn rates. Hardwoods like oak, beech, and ash tend to burn longer and hotter than softwoods.
  • Stove Efficiency: A well-maintained stove with proper airflow ensures efficient combustion.

Removing Moisture from Wood (to Burn)

To prepare logs for burning, consider these drying methods:

  • Air Drying: Air drying takes several months but is a natural way to reduce moisture content.
  • Kiln Drying: Kiln-dried logs are ready for use much faster. Our kiln-drying process ensures optimal moisture levels.
  • Vacuum Drying and Surface Drying: These methods are less common but can be effective for specific situations.
