The difference between hardwood and softwood:
Hardwood; – Is from slow growing deciduous, broadleaf trees e.g. oak, ash, beech. Hardwood has a high density and BURNS SLOWLY, giving a slower, steady heat.
Softwood; – Is from fast growing evergreens, conifers e.g. Larch. Softwood has a lower density and burns faster than hardwood, giving out a rapid high heat. Larch has a fresh, pine aroma and visually creates an atmospheric fire with lots of flames.
Why is it important to have Seasoned Logs for firewood? Seasoning reduces the moisture content of the wood making it more suitable as fuel. This is acheived a0 by felling trees when they contain the least moisture e.g. when the sap is low during the winter and b) cutting and splitting the logs and leaving them to air dry for at least an entire summer season. If the wood is NOT well seasoned it will contain too much moisture. Burning badly seasoned firewood will also cause access soot and tar deposits in your chimney or flue.
