1 metre in soft wood or 1.25 in nice hardwood or if bent and horrible then 1 metre to mix in with the softwood for the boiler.

1.1m here as have two machines and that size fits both, gives 5 x 220mm (~9") logs or 4 x 275mm (~11") logs which fits our circular saw and customers seem to like these sizes.

All our 3m lenths of timber over 14''diameter are cracked into 4 billets of 3m lengths and then put through the processor and cut to length of log required when they have seasoned.
