KILN DRIED LOGS
While it may be tempting to stock up on the cheapest wood available to use as fuel throughout the winter, this might not be the economical option you expected. Cheap, unseasoned logs have a much higher moisture content than kiln dried logs, which generally means you need roughly three times as many logs to produce the same amount of heat. This can ultimately end up being more expensive than buying quality firewood in the first place, as well as damaging your flue, sooting up and tarring your chimney.
Based in Ewhurst, LJN Firewood produces our own kiln dried logs with a guaranteed moisture content of less than 20%. This makes them the most efficient and reliable source of firewood that domestic households and local businesses around Cobham, Cranleigh, Godalming, Guildford, Weybridge and the surrounding areas can buy.
We produce our own barn kiln dried firewood at our yard in Ewhurst, using biomass kiln driers. We supply logs in a range of hardwoods including Oak, Ash, Beech, Hornbeam, Cherry and Birch, as these woods produce an excellent amount of heat for a good length of time.
If you are looking to fuel your feature fireplace in Cobham, wood-burning stove in Cranleigh, log burner in Godalming, barbecue in Guildford or campfire in Weybridge or the surrounding Surrey area, there are several benefits to using kiln dried logs over unseasoned firewood.
Some of these include:

At LJN Firewood, we recommend storing your kiln dried hardwood logs in a suitably aerated location which provides shelter from the rain. The best way to keep your firewood dry during damp winter months is to build a log store or woodshed with a roof and several open sides outside your home in Cobham, Guildford or Weybridge. This allows for better air circulation, ensuring that moist air doesn’t gather around the logs.
In addition to deliveries, our company offers a professional stacking service for homeowners around Cranleigh, Godalming and the surrounding areas, for your convenience.
If you decide to stack and store the logs yourself, we suggest using old pallets or other such accessories to create a raised base on which to store your kiln dried logs. Keeping logs off the ground ensures that your firewood is not sitting in pools of water from wet weather, which could lead to rotting and makes it harder to reduce the moisture content.
