what logs have you been chopping today!

Recommended Posts

Spruce, glorious spruce. Well it wasn't actually me cutting it, rather one of the guys. Nice stuff though. Flies through the processor.

Yes - there's no such thing as bad firewood!

It catches light easily and gives off a lot of heat.

 

Forest grown is better. Trees in a garden/croft/field edge can have some huge knots running right through, and you end up with very odd shaped logs (which don't stack!)

Yes but it's when it's a 4ft+ diameter spruce with knots the size of footballs running right to the centre, and the end product has to fit into a diddy wee 5kw stove :002:
