Kiln Dried Hardwood Logs
Derbyshire Firewood supplies kiln dried firewood which offers a premium burning performance and consistently low moisture content. This ensures that you are buying the best quality, clean burning firewood and helping to look after your stove and flue whilst providing good heat and flame.
Starting with timber sourced from sustainably managed UK woodlands, we cut, split & dry our logs locally in our state of the art drying facility. We use the heat generated from a biomass fuelled electricity generator, powering a potato farm, to heat our log drying kiln. This makes for a high quality kiln dried log product with a high degree of sustainabilty by utilising existing heat generation. Derbyshire Firewood supply mixed kiln dried hardwood*, mainly ash, beech, birch, oak & sycamore, all known as good firewoods. Single wood species log orders may be available by request.
Kindling & Firelighters
Our kindling is split down from kiln dried softwood to provide a great quality kindling that will get your fire lit first time. Softwood makes the best kindling as the natural resins and lighter density help it to ignite. Softwood kindling also produces a short lived but fierce flame that helps your main fuel source logs to catch fire.
Smokeless Solid Fuel
Smokeless Solid Fuel can be used in multi-fuel stoves and open fires, and is also permissible to use in a smokeless zone such as Derby. Using a small amount of smokeless solid fuel in a multi-fuel stove or open fire mixed with seasoned wood can produce some good stove results. The smokeless fuel has a very long burn time and helps to keep some core heat in the fire-box or base of an open fire.
Our heat logs are a great alternative to firewood logs and used alone or in combination with traditional firewood logs can provide excellent burning results and a potential cost saving. Heat logs are made from 100% compressed sawdust, a by-product of sawmills, making it highly sustainable. This is then formed using extreme pressure or extreme heat & pressure to produce an exceptionally dry and dense, bio-fuel briquette. There are no bonding agents used to hold heat logs together, just the natural lignin polymers in the wood.Our heat logs are a great alternative to firewood logs and used alone or in combination with traditional firewood logs can provide excellent burning results and a potential cost saving.

Loose Tipped Loads
As a more economical method of supply we are able to offer loose tipped loads of kiln dried firewood tipped direct on your property. This is available in half (1.5m³ ) or full (3m³) loads, equivalent to approx. 2.5 or 5 bulk bags. Our timber is UK sourced from sustainably managed forests and processed into firewood and kiln dried at our facility near Pontefract. Like all our other kiln dried wood this is dried to an average moisture content of 15%, ensuring a high-quality firewood product that will produce a clean burn in your wood burner or open fire. As logs come off our processing plant they are run through a riddling unit to remove splinters and chips that are generated in the splitting process, ensuring that you receive good sized logs. Prices will include delivery within our standard delivery area. Our loose hardwood logs are a mixture of species including ash, beech oak and sycamore.
Chips & Scraps
Fancy a bargain? We are now offering bulk bags of random chips & scraps of kiln dried hardwood that we wouldn’t be able to classify as ‘logs’. Although our new state of the art log processing plant is highly efficient at turning large diameter tree trunks into cut, split hardwood logs, there are always some chips, splinters and oddly shaped bits of wood that are produced. The majority of these are rejected automatically by our processing plant with further pieces separated out when our logs are hand sorted for packing. All of this material has been through our drying facility and due to most of it being of smaller size to our logs, is exceptionally dry.
