How Much Wood to Order?

We often get asked:

“I’m not sure how much firewood I need to order to last me over the winter?”

How much wood will you need to burn this year?

We have a rule of thumb which may be helpful. Many of our customers who use their woodburner a few evenings a week over the winter, order 2 cubic metres for the winter. If you use your woodburner most evenings, you’ll probably need 3-4 cubic metres. If you use your woodburner all of the time, day and evening, then maybe 6 cubic metres or more.

Please remember this does of course depend on the output and efficiency of your woodburner, as well as the type of firewood you’re ordering (for example a cubic metre of kiln-dried hardwood provides more heat than a cubic metre of seasoned softwood).

If you have an open fire, because they are so inefficient, you’ll need at least 3 times the amount of firewood you’ll use in a woodburner to get the same amount of heat.

How many nets of logs in a cubic metre?

We pack one cubic metre of logs into 20 good size nets (net size is 450mm x 700mm).
