Why should you use dry firewood?

Category:Wood Tags : 

Whilst it is true that any wood will burn, it is advisable to always burn dry firewood. Wood that hasn’t been dried still has water in it and a lot of energy (heat) created by burning is wasted in turning that water to steam. The benefits of properly dried firewood are:


  • Reduced environmental impact
  • Increased heat output
  • Easier to light
  • Less smoke
  • Less soot deposits


You can dry your own firewood or buy a branded dry firewood, such as Ready to Burn
