Frequently Asked Questions

Northampton Firewood
Where does your wood come from?
Our wood comes from both local tree surgeons and sustainable forestry commission approved sources. We utilise and process every single bit of timber we have.

Cutting down trees for firewood, surely that is bad for the environment?
Absolutely not, firewood is a sustainable, natural and renewable resource. Most of our timber which is processed into firewood has been removed from woodlands as a thinning process. This means the weaker and smaller trees are removed in order to help the larger and stronger trees develop. Over the past 6 years, Northampton Firewood have planted over 1750 trees around Northamptonshire.

Why do you not sell by weight?
Selling by weight is the wrong way to sell firewood as the heavier the wood the more moisture there is. An unseasoned trailer load of firewood could weigh 1.6 tonnes, if it were seasoned the weight would be more around the 1.2 tonnes. Selling by volume such as the cubic metre, gives our customers a clear and honest description of how much firewood they're really going to get.

How do you know it's seasoned?
All of our firewood is checked with a moisture metre before it leaves our facility, 15-25% moisture contents is the ideal moisture bracket for properly seasoned wood. You can also use a simple way of checking that your wood is seasoned but banging two logs together, you want to hear a solid noise like a ball hitting a baseball bat, if it sounds dull it's likely that your wood is not properly seasoned.

How big are you logs?
Our standard size log is 9 inches (22.86cm's). We also stock larger logs for open fires, please specify this when ordering.

How long does it take to deliver, how do you deliver and in what conditions?
We usually deliver within 24 hours but can guarantee delivery within 48 hours. We tip the bags or slide them off where there is a safe and soft area on your driveway. We deliver in ANY condition, even if there's a foot of snow outside we have the right kit to make sure we get our products to your door without fail, making sure you keep warm during most bitter parts of the winter. Don't forget, you can always collect from out storage facility.

Where should I store them?
We highly advice you store them in a Log store, these are widely available on the internet. If not, keep them covered from the rain and make sure they are stored in an area where plenty of air is circulating to keep them fresh and well seasoned.
