Kiln Dried Birch Firewood

Kiln Dried Birch is a new product for White Horse Energy this Autumn.
kiln dried birch half crate  
Birch firewood is prized for its bright burning, easy lighting and great fragrance. The Scandinavians are so obsessed with birch that they more or less refuse to burn anything else in their fires! We are really excited about this product this season - a far superior product to the Alder firewood it is replacing, we've managed to keep the price at an inappropriately low level. 

Dried to an average moisture content of less than 20% these logs are split and cut to 25cm lengths and should fit in the vast majority of wood burning appliances. On dispatch we wrap your crate with a thin plastic sheet to make sure that they get to you as dry as they left us. Please note that you really do want to store your logs somewhere out of the rain – there’s nothing so heart-breaking than seeing beautifully dry logs being subjected to the English winter drizzle.
We produce two size of crates, a ‘Full’ and a ‘Half. Please be aware that the full crates are very large, and unless you have an ideal delivery location we recommend ordering a half crate and discussing the possibility of taking a ‘Full’ crate with the driver who delivers your order – he (or she) will have the experience to guide you as to what is most practical for your location.

Important info RE: Full Crates
Full crates are VERY large. As a result they can only be delivered to ideal delivery locations - i.e. no inclines, lips from road to pavement etc. If in doubt order a half crate first and then try the full crate!

Product Reviews

Richard Eland
Great logs which were a good size for our burner. If you peel some bark off first and place under some logs there is no need for any fire lighters or kindling as the whole lot lights instantly. Worth getting these purely for the extra convenience.
Many thanks.

Great product (5 star), 8% on my moisture meter. Slight issue with delivery as on a massive lorry that couldn't get up my back lane (bin vans get up easily). Being fair to the driver, he rang me to explain and I agreed to have them left on the road, but then had to wheelbarrow them all 100yds in a hurricane! Crate wrapping was surprisingly effective even against driving rain.

Check about delivery if any doubt about access. Otherwise, actual logs are lovely.

Excellent logs. Delivery slightly challenging due to restricted access, but well managed by helpful driver Jim.
