When burning wood it is important that they are as dry as possible otherwise a lot of the heat produced is used to heat up and evaporate the water in the wood.
Unseasoned logs are very inefficient as they produce less heat and more condensation which is one of the main causes of chimney fires.
For this reason all wood destined for burning should be seasoned.
What makes a Log a Seasoned Log?
Seasoning a log or piece of wood means that you are taking the moisture content of the log or wood from 30-45% water, down to 20-25% water.
This can be done by cutting down the logs or wood to smaller pieces and allowing them to dry out through the spring and the summer.
Once the logs or wood pieces have been dried it is important that they are protected from direct rainfall and placed in a dry location.
It is also a good idea to keep the sides of the stack open to the elements so that the wind can get to the wood and dry it out further.
You will know when the logs or pieces of wood you have collected are seasoned when cracks appear in the grain of the wood.
