This is why we offer kiln dried wood, with moisture levels as low as 16%, these logs will make for a superior burn and ensure that you are getting the most for your money. The kiln essentially bakes the moisture out of the wood, but not before the logs have been expertly cut and seasoned. Check out our selection of softwood kindling.
As opposed to hardwood, softwood, burns quickly and with great output. This makes it ideal for starting fires, but not maintaining them. To maintain them, typically softwood is used as kindling, and hardwood or kiln dried logs are used for sustaining the actual fire. Only a small amount of softwood kindling will be required to start an effective fire, whether you choose to light from the top down (the Scandinavian way), that is a base of hardwood logs followed by a layer of softwood kindling and crowned with a firelighter, or the more traditional bottom down method, that is newspaper and kindling underneath a pile of hardwood, kiln dried logs.
