Hot Logs Quality Kiln Dried Firewood is an environmentally sound, clean and renewable fuel ideally suited for solid fuel stoves. Hot Logs are simply hardwood firewood logs dried to a very low moisture content. Our unique kiln drying process ensures our logs are consistently dry that results in an extremely efficient burn in your stove.
We sell our logs in small convenience packs through a number of retail outlets bulk bags.
The bulk bags contain 1.4 cubic meters loose volume equivalent to 0.75m3 solid volume of kiln dried hardwood logs.
We deliver these bulk bags nationwide.
We sell Hot Logs by volume rather than weight due to the fact that the weight of firewood varies considerably depending on moisture content and species.
The pictures on this site will give you a guide as to the size of these bulk bags.
They are delivered on a pallet and the bag dimensions are 1m x 1m x 1.4m.
As a guide, if we were to sell this volume of hardwood firewood green (unseasoned) then it would weigh approximately 1.25 tonnes, much of which would be water.
Instead, Hot logs are already seasoned and ready to burn efficiently in your stove.
Hot Logs are only made from hardwood species such as Beech, Ash, Sycamore and Birch. Because of their higher density, hardwoods burn with a slower and steadier heat output than conifer or softwood timber.
Approximately twice as much softwood is required to produce the same heat output as hardwoods.
Hot Logs are produced from sustainably managed Irish woodlands and are one of nature’s most natural sources of energy.
They are a by-product of responsible woodland management and are 100% natural. All we do is dry them!
Unlike some firewood suppliers, we do not import hardwood timber from unsustainable and exploitative sources in Eastern Europe or Africa. Instead we support Irish jobs in the Irish woodland management and timber supply chain.
Renewable - Unlike oil, coal and peat based fuels, firewood is renewable – it can be produced within our life time without damaging the environment.
By burning firewood from well managed woodlands we are not depleting the earth’s natural resources.
The growing and burning of firewood from well managed woodlands is a “carbon neutral” activity.
This means that carbon dioxide released when wood is burned becomes re-absorbed by Ireland’s growing woodlands which may in turn be used by future generations.
Therefore, a Hot Logs fire is kind to the environment.
Convenient - Hot Logs bring you a real log fire in a bag.
All you need for a roaring log fire is conveniently packaged into an easy to carry bag.
Our logs are carefully graded and kiln dried and are guaranteed to light every time.
