HARDWOOD LOGS

Hardwood Logs in Cobham, Godalming, Guildford and the Surrounding Areas

At LJN Firewood, we have been producing and delivering quality hardwood logs for domestic households and local businesses in Cranleigh, Weybridge and throughout the Surrey and West Sussex regions since 2003, and our expert personnel have generations of shared experience in the industry. When it comes to firewood, there isn’t much we don’t know. That is why you can trust us when we tell you that, in our professional opinion, kiln dried hardwood logs are far superior as firewood than softwood logs.

 

Naturally, hardwood must undergo some form of drying process before it is suitable for use as fuel for fireplaces, wood-burning stoves and log burners, which is why we use biomass kiln driers to reduce the moisture content of the wood to below 20%.

 

This produces a clean, efficient burn with minimal smoke.

Hardwood Logs in Godalming

We produce our own hardwood logs at our yard in Ewhurst, sourced from local tree surgery jobs, site clearances and forestry projects carried out by our sister company, LJN Tree Surgery, around Cobham, Cranleigh, Godalming, Guildford, Weybridge and the surrounding areas. Not only does this keep our carbon footprint low, but it also helps us to ensure that we use only the best quality wood.

We use the following species of tree for our hardwood logs:

 

  • Beech – A good choice for long-term heating, this dense hardwood offers a clean and intense burn without giving off a lot of sparks. Its smooth, thin layer of bark does not flake off, resulting in less bark residue after burning. However, it can be difficult to light. If you live in Cobham, Guildford, Weybridge or the surrounding areas, we recommend buying kindling and firelighters from LJN Firewood for the best results.
  • Birch – Many firewood sellers around Cranleigh, Godalming and the wider Surrey and West Sussex regions use over 50% Birch, as it is very fast growing, cheap to purchase, and quick to process and dry. However, it is the quickest burning form of broadleaf wood. We would therefore only use a very limited amount to complement the superior hardwoods.
  • Cherry – This type of wood supplies a decent amount of heat and gives off a pleasant aroma when burned. While Cherry hardwood logs can spark more than others if incorrectly seasoned, we kiln dry to the highest standard to dramatically minimise this risk.
  • Hornbeam – This wood burns in a very similar fashion to Beech, providing a good amount of heat for fireplaces, stoves and log burners, particularly if using kiln dried or seasoned logs.
  • Oak – This is one of the very best types of firewood as its density allows for a long, slow burn which can keep a fire going throughout the night. This is only possible if dried 100% correctly, otherwise they will hiss and tar up.
