Local firewood logs for sale in the Scottish Borders
All our firewood, softwood logs and hardwood logs are responsibly sourced from the Scottish Borders. Our logs and firewood are seasoned for two summers, then finished off in the kiln which minimises the amount of moisture contained in the logs. Logs with a high moisture content give a far lower total heat output, even when considering the time it takes to burn a wet log.
Beware rogue sellers: Other vendors’ “kiln dried” logs may still have a high moisture content. Our logs are air dried for two years and then finished in the kiln. Some vendors advertise “kiln dired” logs which have been put on the kiln shortly after the timber has been felled and have not been left for long enough so can still have a moisture content upwards of 40%..
If you’re based in the Scottish Borders and want to order local logs, organise a visit, or enquire about firewood prices, please call 07946 644954 or email email@example.com.

* It is often thought that burning softwood logs will damage your chimney. Softwood logs contain resin, and if the firewood is not properly seasoned, this can condense on the inside of chimneys. This build up causes a tarry residue which is a common cause of chimney fires. However, if the firewood and logs are properly seasoned, any resin in the wood burns as fuel, and no chimney problems are caused. Interestingly the Scandinavians, who are stove experts, burn mostly softwood logs.
