FAQ's

There are around 40 nets in a 1m3 crate of kiln dried logs. Because the wood is stacked these take up less space. When we deliver these you will need to unpack the logs yourself once we have delivered. Then the crate makes the perfect kindling as they are not treated.
There are around 8-9 nets in a bulk bag. They are a mixture of Silver Birch and Oak or Ash. The silver birch (white bark) should be used to start the fire, then once the fire is going, use the Ash or Oak, as these burn for longer.
Here is some useful things to know when buying your wood. There are two types of volumes to consider when buying wood: 1) Stacked volume 2) Loose filled volume Facts: 1) Stacked volume takes up less space when stacked. ie crates 2) Loose filled volume has more air gaps between the pieces of wood. ie bulk bags In a bulk 1m3 bag there are about 28 nets. In a 1.2m3 bulk bag there are around 33 nets. In a 1.3m3 bulk bag there are around 36 nets.

London is a smoke control area, this means that you can burn wood in an approved appliance. These are typically know as Defra stoves, Defra approved stoves and Smoke Exempt Stoves. These stoves have been sent for testing and have an efficiency of over 65%, therefore they burn the particulates created. Sometimes a manufacturer may describe the stove as clean burning, this isn't to be confused with being approved and is a sales term, so always ask if the stove is approved for burning before buying any stove if you live in a smoke control area. One unknown fact is that there are no laws against having a bonfire, but there are laws for the nuisance they can cause. For example danger to traffic if you allow the smoke to drift across the road and become a danger to traffic. A bonfire must happen frequently to be considered a nuisance. So you can own a Fire Pit, or Pizza oven and burn logs on those and buying kiln dried logs to use will help, as these are very low in moisture and the amount of smoke created when burning them is vastly reduced, compared to burning seasoned logs. You are not allowed to burn house hold waste (not that you would want to!) Please see this link on the DEFRA website for further information and to search for smoke exempt appliances: https://smokecontrol.defra.gov.uk/appliances.php
We recommend using firelighters as this gives a constant source of heat to light the kindling, using news paper crates a quick flash of heat, which can cause your stove or fireplace to smoke. Remember at the start of the fire it is important to warm the flue, a warm flue will draw properly and using firelighters and kindling to do this is the first step. Once you have a kindling fire going then add smaller logs, let these set on fire and once you have some embers, then add on your larger log sizes.
How much fuel you need will depend on a number of factors and will vary from customer to customer. Obviously how often you light a fire in your stove or fireplace is an important factor. So is the heat output of your appliance and the type of fuel you are burning. The air flow into your appliance also effects the time it takes for your fuel to be consumed. Keeping the vents on your stove open will increase the speed the fuel burns. We have spent time putting together some tailored packages that will allow you to test each type of fuel we sell. These tailored packages are available with FREE DELIVERY inside the M25 and Surrey. We also deliver Nationally using the Palletways Network, who will contact you to arrange the best time for delivery with you. Deliveries are made Monday to Friday to our nationwide customers between 9am to 5pm.
Apart from being carbon neutral; olive wood is very dense meaning that it burns for longer than other hardwood species such as birch and oak. By using olive wood in combination with other hardwood species you will reduce our overall spend on wood. Olive wood also produces a wonderful aroma and burns with a beautiful bright flame.
Smokeless coal refers to natural or manufactured coal products that do not give off tarry or other hydrocarbon vapours when heated below their point of ignition. Anthracite is a naturally-occurring smokeless fuel which has a long burn time and a high heat output. It can, however, be difficult to light and burns with a subdued flame, so many fire-owners choose other options. Manufactured smokeless coals contain anthracite and a mix of other fuels. Our smokeless coal has been developed to combine the long fire life of anthracite with the bright flame and easy-lighting qualities of house coal, and can be used on an open fire cast iron insert, and in multi-fuel stoves.
Seasoned logs are naturally dried outside and will only reach a moisture content that matches the ambient atmosphere. The moisture content in your house is lower than that of the outside world. Leaving the seasoned logs in a well-ventilated inside storage area will allow more moisture to be removed and you will end up with a log that burns better, for longer and produces more heat and less smoke.
Freshly-chopped wood has between 40-60% moisture content depending on the species. When burning wet or green wood the majority of the energy released is wasted evaporating the water in the wood rather than heating your house. Wet wood produces more smoke than seasoned wood and can leave harmful creosote deposits on your chimney or flue pipe. Creosote is formed when wood smoke condenses and attaches itself to the lining of a chimney before it exits the top of pipe. You should get your chimney swept regularly, twice a year, to remove excess creosote deposits.
Seasoning is the process of reducing the natural moisture content in wood, resulting in less smoke and a more uniform combustion when used as firewood. Seasoning is the traditional method for drying wood and can take between 6-9 months. The logs are stacked on a raised foundation in a clean, cool, dry and shady area. Air flow through the stack is the key to removing moisture through evaporation.
These are really simple to use. First lay a bed of kindling, place a single natural firelighter on top. Lay 3-4 pieces of kindling over the top in a "tippi" shape and place two small logs over the top of the kindling. Light the natural firelighter and away you go! If you are lighting a stove or fireplace on a cold day, it may help if you use 2 or 3 natural firelighters to help warm the flue quickly, as a warm flue will draw properly once warm. If lighting charcoal or a fire pit when cooking outside, or a wood fired oven using a compressed beech log, then use 3 firelighters, as this will get your fire up to temperature quickly. This is the same for burning smokeless fuel, get the fire as hot as possible at the start so that the flue warms up!
Once you have selected your kiln dried pizza oven logs, you will also need very dry kindling and firelighters. Use the firelighters to set your kindling on fire, then add smaller pieces of kiln dried pizza oven logs building up in a pyramid shape. For added flavour, why not add a few bags of olive wood (find this in the top ups and kindling section), its smells amazing too and lasts for a very long time!
Olive Wood logs are from the many places including Europe and Turkey where olive's are produced. Olive wood logs are a fantastic fuel to heat your home and cool with, burning for twice the time of a kiln dried log due to it being very dense. The olive wood trees naturally die over time and in the counties where it grows the wood is used locally for heating and cooking, the brash (small branches of olive wood) is traditionally used for pizza ovens and cooking and the larger trunks and branches are used for firewood. It is then chopped up into manageable sizes, seasoned for over a year, creating olive wood logs and chunks. The olive hardwood logs are put into bags and weigh around 10-12kG. Olive wood smells amazing too and is the best hardwood log to cook food with. Why not try some as a top up on your order?
We source all of our olive wood from the Mediterranean. Olive farmers chop down the old olive trees as their productivity declines, leaving the productive roots to produce plentiful new growth or planting new trees to replace those that have died or become unproductive. Each year thousands of olive trees are left to decompose naturally releasing their stored carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. Utilising these old trees as a source of fuel has a carbon-neutral effect on the environment.
Medical research has shown that families who use solid fuels, such as smokeless coal, are less likely to suffer from hay fever, asthma and eczema. The use of the chimney draws fresh air through the house and removes “polluted” air; thus creating a better ventilated home. With smokeless coal also producing less harmful emissions than other types of fuel they produce less pollution and are kinder to the environment.
Your Log Store needs to be on level place as there will be a lot of weight in it and it needs to be stable. Your log store should be placed where it can get plenty of air flow and some warmth, so somewhere the sun can get to it. Avoid a dark damp place that is shaded from the sun and wind. You log store is designed to allow air flow through it so face it away from the prevailing rain direction. If you are putting your log store against a wall this is fine, try and pick a wall that doesn't tend to have driving rain against it. But if this is the case then the logs will evaporate the surface moisture on them. It also needs to be in a place that you can get to easily to get a basket of logs on a cold night.
Kiln drying is the process of using heat to evaporate the natural water contained in wood. The wood is stacked inside the kiln and hot air is circulated through the drying chamber to increase the rate of evaporation. Kiln drying also kills naturally occurring insects and mould on the wood. Firewood that has been kiln dried is cleaner, lighter and better burning than green or naturally seasoned firewood logs.
The first thing is to get the fire very hot, as quick as possible. To do this, build the fire up, putting logs onto the kindling fire, rather than making a large pile at the start and stay with the fire. By being with the fire, you can see the flames rise as the logs set on fire and can add more. Remember to wear professional heat proof gloves. Then when you start to get lots of embers, move them towards the back of the Pizza oven, creating a nice hot base clear from ash. Sometimes people like to cook for a longer time over a few hours, if doing this push the embers to the side of the pizza oven, so that you can restock the fire in between cooking to keep the heat up. Closing the door also helps the embers stay and increases the heat inside.
Yes we do! They are 19cm (+/-1cm), so are a maximum of 20cm, we sell them in nets for easy handing. You can buy 20 nets, 35 nets or 70 nets of our small logs, perfect for small, multifuel stoves and wood burningstoves, fireplace grates, pizza ovens and BBQ's. You can find them in our kiln dried logs page.
Our 20cm silver birch nets, can be burnt on any stove, the advantage of having a 20cm logs is that they can fit into the smallest of stoves, like the Salamander Hobbit stove, we make sure ensure they are never cut over 20cm. The size of these small logs for small stoves makes them ideal log for a small stove or small fireplace. All wood in the UK is normally 25cm in length, so our smaller logs for wood burners and small cast iron fireplace baskets are a life line for those who are tired of cutting their firewood that is too large.
Place 3 pieces of kindling on the grate, then add 2-3 firelighters on top and a good handful of kindling onto the grate, then sprinkle a layer of smokeless coal around the kindling and on top of the kindling, leaving some kindling showing in the middle. Light the firelighters and ensure the vents on your stove are fully open. Once the fire has taken you can add more fuel to create a deep fire bed and adjust the vent until you achieve your desired burning rate. Leaving the vents fully open until the coals are glowing red. To prolong the burn, or to achieve over night burning, close the primary air vent, so that all the air intake is coming through the secondary and if you have one, your tertiary air vent. If burning on an open fireplace the process is the same except you will need to use a little more kindling at the beginning to set on fire, this is to allow the flue to be warmed more first from the kindling fire, remember that a warm flue draws properly, so the kindling fire is also being used to warm the flue up.
Kiln-dried logs are the best fuel to burn in your wood burning stove because they contain less moisture than green or seasoned logs. This means that they produce more heat and burn for longer making them more economical than other types of firewood. Kiln-dried logs will heat your room faster, burn with a brighter flame and produce less smoke than seasoned or green logs helping to minimise the build-up of harmful deposits on your chimney or lining system.
Use at least two firelighters and 5-8 pieces of kindling to generate enough heat to warm your flue. Once the kindling is burning add a couple of smaller kiln-dried logs - as these burn and create a layer of embers you can add a couple of larger logs. Reloading time will depend on the draw and size of your fireplace or wood burning stove - normally you will need to reload every 45 minutes or so.

Great stuff thank you, arrived on time, lovely dry logs, makes winter that little bit better; will use you again

Ian

Clapham

I thought the quality of service and the quality of product was great. Friendly, helpful staff and a hassle-free delivery at a convenient time. The only painful part of the process was carrying the logs through the house! The website gives you lots of information about what's on offer, how to order, etc. and the idea of suggesting three delivery slots worked really well.

Sarah Watson

London, E11

Thanks for the fuel delivery. It was better for me coming in the morning rather than the afternoon and the delivery guy couldn't have been more helpful. Will definitely use you guys next time.

Peter Lewis

London

It was great on time. good value. marvellous. and a much needed hour long early morning work out for me moving half a ton of wood from the street to my woodshed, log by log...honestly, very happy. thanks.

Giles Coren

London

Logs are great and Barney was as well. Super nice guy and professional. Better logs than what I ordered from BuyFirewooddirect.co.uk. They also weren't willing to help out with my back injury. My neighbour just bought a stove so I will reach out to him about ordering a couple of pallets of loose wood as to give you more business and cut down my costs. Enjoy the weekend.

Christopher Tancredi

London

Excellent service as always

Jon Dickens

London

This company is fabulous as not only are they wonderfully efficient about delivery and communication but the products they offer are of excellent quality and I wholeheartedly recommend them.

Dr Vicky Jolliffe

Excellent service from initial ordering on the website (super easy), clearly defined logs and descriptions and it was great the logs arrived on time. They were put under our porch as it was raining (thank you!) and they therefore remained really dry. The silver birch logs where exactly the right size for my small fire and burn really well and smell lovely. Having tried lots of other log companies on-line (who said their logs were small and they were not), I will definitely use Log-Delivery.co.uk again.

Ashleigh

North London

The logs arrived on time & as described on the website. They smell great & produce lots of heat when burnt. The delivery man was very friendly, cheerful & gave a good customer service, which makes such a difference. Thank you!

Mr Paragreen

London E1

Wonderful service and honest people warm house I don't want to leave such a good log fire thank you.

Krithia Wildfire

London SW20

I would like to say how impressed we were of the service we received. I was expecting the delivery to be left at the top of our garden but when we arrived home from work we were pleasantly surprised to find the logs neatly stacked in the passage to the garden (with is down several steps ). I will certainly be using your company in the future.

Simon Earley

Walton-Upon-Thames

Very impressed as a first time user of Log-Delivery. From Tom who took my order, to the chap who delivered. Very good customer service, delivery came well within the 3 hr window which makes a huge change from having to stay in all day or pay extra for a rare Saturday delivery. Would definitely recommend

Jean Acheson

Kingston-Upon-Thames

As before we're very happy with the level service (both on the phone and from the driver) and with the quality of your logs. No fuss, excellent logs and just what you promised.
